The 1989–90 season was Blackpool F.C.'s 83rd season (80th consecutive) in the Football League. They competed in the 24-team Division Three, then the third tier of English league football, finishing second-bottom. As a result, they were relegated to the league's basement division.

Jimmy Mullen replaced Sam Ellis as manager prior to the start of the season. It was to be his only season in charge of the club.

Blackpool had a prolonged run in the FA Cup, eventually succumbing to Queens Park Rangers after two fifth-round replays.

Andy Garner was the club's top scorer for the second consecutive season, with ten goals (eight in the league, one in the FA Cup and one in the League Cup).
