The CW Cancels ‘Frequency,’ ‘No Tomorrow’

Freshman dramas were not picked up beyond initial series orders

“Frequency” and “No Tomorrow” have been officially canceled by The CW, TheWrap has learned.

The freshman dramas were both given the axe after premiering to disappointing ratings. Neither show was expected to return after failing to earn a full-season order last fall.

“Frequency,” which starred Peyton List and Riley Smith, averaged just a 1.5 million viewers per episode. The hour-long dramedy “No Tomorrow” from “Jane the Virgin” alum Corinne Brinkerhoff fared even worse, with an average of 1 million viewers.

The two cancellations mean the Archie Comics adaptation “Riverdale” will be the only freshman drama at the network this season to receive a renewal. The midseason drama, executive produced by Greg Berlanti, was renewed for a second season back in March.

The CW previously handed out early renewals to seven of its fall series in January, including the four DC Comics adaptations “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl” and “Legends of Tomorrow,” as well as awards contenders “Jane the Virgin” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” and the long-running “Supernatural.” The post-apocalyptic drama “The 100” has also been renewed for a fifth season.

The news comes ahead of the network’s upfronts presentation next month. The Rob Thomas dramedy “iZombie” and the “Vampire Diaries” spinoff “The Originals” are the only two series whose fates have yet to be determined. The network also has six pilots in contention for the fall.
