The CW will end teen drama 90210 in May, reportedly due to the show’s less-than-desirable ratings in its fifth season.
The series finale of Beverly Hills’ fourth spinoff will air May 13, TVLine reports.
90210, starring Shenae Grimes, AnnaLynne McCord and Jessica Stroup, premiered on the network in 2008 as a reboot of the massively popular ’90s sensation Beverly Hills, 90210, the anchor of Darren Star's franchise that aired on Fox for 10 seasons.
Actors Jennie Garth, Shannon Doherty and Tori Spelling also returned in recurring roles as their original Beverly Hills characters to carry the reboot for the first two seasons.
Unlike its parent series, 90210 has recently received low numbers compared with its lead-in, freshman drama and another continuation series, The Carrie Diaries. The show dropped from a million viewers and 0.5 demo ratings to 550,000 viewers and 0.2, according to the Hollywood Reporter and TVLine.
Newly reunited Fall Out Boy is also set to make an appearance at a concert at West Beverly Hills High School in an April 29 episode, according to E Online.
90210 currently airs on the CW Mondays at 9.
