The CW is relocating 90210 to the big zip code in the sky.
TVLine has learned exclusively that the network has decided to end the ’90s reboot in May after five seasons.
The closure-filled series finale, which will likely be paired with a retrospective, is set to air on Monday, May 13.
Less-than-zippy ratings led to The CW’s call, as 90210 this season alone slid from a million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating (with its opener) to, at last tally, under 600,000 viewers and a 0.3, shedding a significant chunk of its Carrie Diaries lead-in.
90210, a continuation of the 10-season cultural phenom Beverly Hills, 90210, launched to much fanfare in 2008 — with Jennie Garth among the original cast members who, for a time, reprised their roles in the new incarnation.
Jessica appeared on “The Flow” Season 1, episode 5. Watch it below and check out HD screencaps I’ve just added in our gallery!

THE CW ANNOUNCES EARLY PICKUPS FOR FIVE SERIES FOR THE 2011-2012 SEASON
For the First Time Ever, “America’s Next Top Model” to Feature All-Stars from Past Cycles for the Fall Edition
“The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “90210” and “Supernatural” Also to Return Next Season
April 26, 2011 (Burbank, California) ─ The CW Network has given early pickups to five of its established series for next season, including an All-Star Cycle of AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL and the network’s top-rated drama THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. All five shows will return in Fall 2011.
With AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MODEL ordered for both cycles next season, The CW’s signature reality series will kick-off the Fall with its first-ever All-Star Edition, featuring the models who became breakout characters and who had the most memorable stories from past cycles. Additional details about the cast, judges and prizes for the All-Star cycle of TOP MODEL will be announced at a later time.
The CW’s bloodily addictive hit THE VAMPIRE DIARIES was also given an early renewal, and in its sophomore season, remains the network’s most-watched show (4.0 million viewers) and the network’s number-one show among its target audience of women 18-34 (2.9/9).
Also given early pickups for next season are The CW’s scandalous guilty pleasures GOSSIP GIRL, the network’s second most popular series with women 18-34 (2.8/7), and 90210, which posts some of TV’s largest percent increases from DVR playback, more than doubling its women 18-34 live ratings once live+7 data is included.
The network also renewed fan favorite SUPERNATURAL, which enters its seventh season next year. In moving to Fridays last September, SUPERNATURAL immediately helped make The CW more competitive on the night and dramatically contributed to year-to-year gains on Friday of 66% in adults 18-34 and 60% in viewers.
Read this interesting article from HollywoodLife.com about 90210 and Jessica’s character Adrianna.
I’ll never understand why, but when I asked what you all wanted to know from 90210 star Tristan Wilds, many of you spoke up with the same question: “Will Dixon and Adrianna [Jessica Lowndes] ever get together?” So against my better judgment, I floated the question his way — and he was surprised, to say the least. ”I would be curious to see how that would even start off,” Tristan told HollywoodLife.com. “Especially considering everything that’s going on with Adrianna right now.”
“Would I want that to happen?” he continued. “It would be cool to get that different dynamic and to see how I would work with Jessica. That would be crazy.”
Spoiler Alert!!! Do not read below if you don’t want spoilers!
Jessica Lowndes and Michael Steger have revealed that there will be a “catfight” in an upcoming episode of 90210.
Lowndes’s character Adrianna is currently embroiled in a feud with Silver (Jessica Stroup), who is dating her ex-boyfriend Navid.
Steger, who plays Navid, has now told TV Line that the situation will escalate when the group flies to Mexico.
“We all get in the plane to head to Cabo, and Ade just shows up,” he said. “There’s a bit of a catfight in the private jet, and it’s probably the cattiest episode between the two.”
Lowndes added: “There’s actually a lot of catfighting. Ade decides to fill a bottle with contaminated tap water and makes Silver sick, after which she replaces my sunblock with moisturiser and gives me the worst sunburn of all time. Plus, we get to wrestle in the pool!”
Stroup has previously suggested that Adrianna will tamper with Silver’s medication in a future episode, which will mean that she begins to struggle with bipolar disorder again.
