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.
TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect the news.
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.
Michael Jackson’s son Prince will make his acting debut on The CW’s 90210, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
MJ’s eldest son, who is filming his guest spot this week, will play Cooper, a trauma victim who will bond with Silver (Jessica Stroup).
The news comes on the heels of Entertainment Tonight‘s announcement that Prince would act as a special correspondent for them.
In the years since their father’s sudden passing in June 2009, the Jackson children have slowly become more comfortable in the limelight. His sister, Paris Jackson, has appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Oprah’s Next Chapter.
