It's time to say goodbye to California's most famous zip code (again). The CW is canceling 90210 after five seasons, with the series finale set to air this May. The show's ratings have been steadily dropping, and let's face it: Naomi, Annie, and the gang had a really good run, and lasted much longer than any of us expected them to. This news comes on the heels of the network's renewal of Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, and Supernatural, and now there's some breathing room for new shows like The Carrie Diaries. Will you miss the 90210 gang?
AnnaLynne McCord put on a red bikini top and 10 Crosby Derek Lam floral pants to film a scene for 90210 in Huntington Beach, CA, today. AnnaLynne filmed with Shenae Grimes, who wore a see-through black lace top from American Apparel and a burgundy maxi skirt. The two actresses dipped their toes in the chilly water before running back up the sand dunes. AnnaLynne's costars Jessica Stroup and Tristan Wilds were also on set and filmed a concert scene.
AnnaLynne is no stranger to working in her bikini, as she and her castmates were spotted taping beach scenes in their two-pieces several times over the past year. All those hours logged in her swimsuit did pay off for AnnaLynne — she made our list of the best celebrity bikini pictures of the year!
While filming scenes for the upcoming season of 90210 in Long Beach, AnnaLynne McCord's character Naomi Clark looked sassy in a Rebecca Minkoff leopard maxi wrap skirt, which revealed her leg. Leave it to the trendy character to pair her leopard print with a bright fuchsia blazer, a dramatic black-and-white floppy hat, and a white crop top with cutouts in the back. But the piling on didn't stop there; Naomi accessorized with a long black-and-gold necklace, a chunky cocktail ring, and oversized diamond stud earrings. This look may be too much for a regular day out, but you can take notes by matching your leopard skirt with a bright pink blazer or your leopard tops with pink bottoms. To get Naomi's full look, shop similar pieces below.
AnnaLynne McCord and her castmates filmed scenes for 90210 on Malibu Beach and while they recited their lines we could not stop staring at AnnaLynne's black string bikini. After some digging around, we tracked down the sexy swimsuit: Agent Provocateur's Kristie ring bikini top ($270) and matching bottoms ($220). You can also get it at Net-A-Porter. It's a pretty price to pay for a bikini, but imagine all the fawning you'll get while wearing it around the beach! It's not the best style if you want to avoid tan lines, but it would turn quite a few heads at a pool party. Wear it with a cover-up à la AnnaLynne or on its own for a dip.
It was a bikini-filled day on the set of 90210. Jessica Stroup, an Agent Provocateur-wearing AnnaLynne McCord, and Jessica Lowndes wore their swimsuits today to film a scene in LA. It was the latest instance of AnnaLynne in a bikini on set, as she donned a hot-pink two-piece to shoot solo last Thursday. The two Jessicas, AnnaLynne, and their fellow leading lady Shenae Grimes are gearing up for the fifth season debut of their show on Oct. 8. The last season was full of shocking moments, including an almost-wedding for AnnaLynne's character Naomi. Will you tune in to see the new episodes of 90210 this Fall?
Jessica Stroup will make her return to TV with 90210 in the Fall, but in the meantime, she's making a big-screen splash with her latest movie, Ted. We recently caught up with the actress at the W Hotel in Hollywood to talk about her new role in the raunchy comedy, as well as what it was like to work alongside writer-director Seth MacFarlane and the stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. Jessica also gave us a sneak peek at how Silver's shocking baby-daddy decision on last season of 90210 will play out when the show returns. Ted hits theaters Friday.
Good news if you're a fan of The CW — the network has just renewed three series! Fan favorites The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural will be back for seasons four and eight respectively, while 90210 will head into season five. It's no surprise that The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural will be back, especially since TVD is the network's highest-rated show, but I am a little shocked to see 90210 continuing to stay strong. The news leaves a few shows still left in the lurch, including Ringer, Hart of Dixie, and Nikita, but we're most interested to learn the fate of Gossip Girl, and whether or not the network will try to squeeze one more season out of the series.

Naomi only just got engaged to PJ on 90210, but I can't say I'm surprised that she's already trying on wedding dresses (and, of course, dragging along bridesmaids Annie and Silver). She doesn't yet know that PJ is jumping into marriage to save his trust fund, so it's still up in the air whether Naomi will ever get to walk down the aisle in her fabulous gown. Still, it's fun to ooh and ahh, so get a peek at Naomi as the woman in white.
