Don't say you didn't see it coming: The CW announced it is pulling the plug on "90210" after five seasons.

The show, a reboot/sequel of Fox's popular teen drama "Beverly Hills, 90210," will sign off after its remaining seven episodes of this season air.

“The CW has had five great seasons with America’s favorite zip code, 90210,” said network president Mark Pedowitz. “I’d like to thank the talented cast, producers, and crew for all their hard work and dedication to the series. We are very proud of the West Beverly High alumni."

One can only hope the cast can be featured in "Old Navy" commercials 15 years from now like their predecessors.

The series has seen its ratings drop significantly over its run. It debuted in 2008 to 4.6 million viewers, but now hovers around 500,000 -- making it the very uncool kid when measured alongside the network's eternally youthful vampires of "The Vampire Diaries" and the rocking abs of "Green Arrow."

Its finale is set for Monday, May 13.
