The CW Cancels ‘Frequency’ and ‘No Tomorrow’

'Riverdale' is the Only CW Freshman Series to Make it to a Second Season

The CW, not surprisingly, has opted against a second season of scripted hours “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow.” Both aired for 13 episodes last fall, “Frequency” out of “The Flash” on Tuesday and “No Tomorrow” out of “Arrow” on Wednesday. Both series generated minimal interest, both socially and by the traditional Nielsen ratings. That leaves “Riverdale,” based on the iconic Archie comic book characters, as the only CW freshman series to make it into a second season.

“Frequency,” a reboot of the 2000 movie of the same name, starred Peyton List as a cop who reconnected with her dead father through a magical radio. “No Tomorrow,” a romantic comedy in the same vein as “Jane the Virgin” and “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” starred Tori Anderson as a straight-laced girl who fell for an impulsive guy (Joshua Sasse) who happens to believe the apocalypse is coming soon.
