Ever since its debut on the E! channel in 2004, Dr. 90210 became one of the hottest docu-reality shows on television. Initially, the show followed the daily life of Dr. Robert Rey (a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon). Eventually, the show began to feature other plastic surgeons, too.
Despite it being one of the E! channel’s hottest shows, lately we haven’t seen any new episodes air. This has led many to assume the show has been canceled. According to a discussion on one prominent plastic surgery message board, the show has not been canceled or renewed because the executive producer Donald Bull allegedly had some other projects to work on. It’s unclear whether or not we can expect to ever see new episodes of Dr. 90210.
Although there are a number of people that miss the show, others argue that some of the doctors featured are not qualified. For example, this rhinoplasty forum features a number of complaints by patients who allege that they chose their surgeon based on the show, and in turn, ended up with a botched nose job. They claim that the show portrayed some plastic surgeons as rhinoplasty experts, when in reality they were doctors that have only been in practice a few short years.
Whether you love the show or hate it, only time will tell if there will be any new episodes in the future. If there isn’t, we can probably expect to see a similar pop up on another network.
