The CW Officially Cancels Two Series

Jump to Comments


Sorry, The CW fans, the network has just canceled not one, but two shows.

According to Entertainment Weekly, freshmen dramas Frequency and No Tomorrow did not make the cut for The CW’s fall lineup.

According to EW, both series were canceled due to their low-ratings in season 1, which makes sense. If you’ve been following these two shows, you probably saw the writing on the wall early on, but it’s still sad to hear.

Frequency, which starred Peyton List and Riley Smith, was about a police detective living in 2016 who learns that she is actually able to communicate with her father, who died in 1996. The show only averaged 1.5 million viewers overall and received an 0.4 rating among adults between 18-49, EW reports.

After hearing the cancelation news, one of the cast members, Lenny Jacobson who played Gordo, gave a sweet shout out to everyone who loved the show.

“Thank you to the amazing fans of #Frequency,the cast that became my family, the writers,the crew in Vancouver, @TheCW, Jeremy & Jen. ❤Gordo,” Jacobson tweeted.

No Tomorrow, on the other hand, was more along the lines of a rom-com. It followed Evie (played by Tori Anderson), a quality-control assessor who hated taking risks as she fell for Xavier (played by Joshua Sasse), who was a thrill seeker. The catch? Xavier believed the apocalypse was coming and therefore had nothing to fear.

It’s ratings were even worse than Frequency coming in at 1 million viewers and only a 0.3 rating amongst the same age bracket.

While this is definitely not good news for fans of the two shows, both of which only had 13 episodes in season 1, there is still hope for two other CW shows.

Both iZombie and The Originals have yet to be picked up for another season, but at this point no news is good news, so think happy thoughts!
