Despite the cliffhanger ending to its Season 1 finale, the Beverly Hills, 90210 reunion show BH90210 has been canceled, Variety reports. The show brought original series cast members Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, and Shannen Doherty back together for six episodes over the summer, and ended up being the highest rated scripted broadcast show of the season. However, most of that came from the first couple of episodes; by the fourth episode, viewership had dropped significantly. The show was also plagued by production drama, causing showrunner Patrick Sean Smith and multiple writers to quit mid-season, apparently over interference from two of the show's lead actresses. The show did have some high points, notably the first-episode tribute to original series star Luke Perry.
