Recently The CW announced their mid-season lineup and TV show air dates, in which they not only made known the premiere dates for such shows as The 100 and iZombie and the dates for season finales of shows like DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and The Vampire Diaries, but also revealed, that they are not ordering full seasons for two of their freshman shows No Tomorrow and Frequency.
First, lets look at the air dates for The CW shows, that are returning to our TV screens early next year. Rob Thomas led zombie show iZombie is set to premiere on Tuesday, April 4 in the 8 Eastern, 9 Pacific time slot with two back-to-back episodes, after which is will move to its regular air time after CW’s number 1 show The Flash at 9/8 central. The post-apocalyptic television drama The 100 will air on Wednesday, February 1 at 9 Eastern, 10 Pacific, right before fan favorite show Arrow. The historical drama Reign will be back with season 4 on Friday, February 19. On top of that the vampire spin-off show The Originals will start it’s season four on Friday, March 17, and CW’s upcoming comic-book-based teen drama Riverdale will air its very first episode on Thursday, January 26, right after Supernatural, which will return with new episodes an hour earlier.
Then there in The CW midseason TV lineup announcement were also news about when we will be able to see the season finales for some of the shows on The CW. For example, the season 2 finale for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will air on Tuesday, March 28, and the musical drama Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will end its second season on Friday, February 3. And The CW’s popular vampire drama The Vampire Diaries will end its 8 season run with their series finale on Friday, March 10.
Segueing off of that, in this announcement The CW also reveled, that their new series, the end-of-the-world-is-near dramedy No Tomorrow as well as the time-traveling crime drama Frequency won’t be getting additional episodes, and will conclude their firs seasons with only 13 episodes. That means that these two shows are joining other network freshman shows, that haven’t been cancelled, but haven’t received additional episode orders either, like ABC’s legal drama Conviction and NBC’s heaven-set comedy The Good Place. We will see, if these shows will be cancelled or renewed when the announcements come, since the cancellation or renewal game of the 2016/2017 TV season has already started, but I hope, that at least one of these CW shows will stay on air, because, if both television series will be cancelled, then it will the first time in the last decade for The CW to cancel all of their new shows.
