The CW has announced that 90210 has received an early pick-up for Season 5. The high school drama, which is based on the hit '90s series Beverly Hills 90210, has been a steady performer for the network since it debuted in 2008.
Also getting good news today with early renewals were The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. The three pick-ups leave a number of other shows' fates unknown until The CW's upfront presentation on May 17, 2012. Fans of shows like The Secret Circle, Nikita, Ringer, Hart of Dixie, and Gossip Girl will have to wait a little longer to find out which of those series will return for the 2012-2013 season.
