CW cancels 3 shows plus 'Supernatural' spinoff
Every CW drama returning next season please take a step forward — not so fast The Tomorrow People.
The CW has lowered its youthful, chiseled, well-coiffed ax on three current shows: The Carrie Diaries, Star-Crossed and, yes, The Tomorrow People will not return next season.
If those cuts didn’t represent enough on-screen romances cut cruelly short, another project is being gunned down at the starting gate: The Supernatural spin-off. Tribes, or Bloodlines, or whatever the title — it’s dead.
The Supernatural project was one of the highest-profile pilots this year, spun off from The CW’s 9-year-old veteran Supernatural, with a pilot that went on the air this season. So initially, Bloodlines (which changed its name from Tribes) was considered very likely to move forward, yet fan reaction to the pilot was largely negative — EW’s own informal poll showed only a third of viewers thought it was worth continuing. Sources say The CW is leaving open the possibility of spinning off Supernatural in another concept down the line.
As for the current shows, their ratings were … not good. Carrie Diaries averaged 1.1 million people, Star-Crossed 1.3 million, and Tomorrow People averaged 1.9 million (see our interview on the producers’ plan for a season 2 that now won’t happen).
Now for the good news: You want to know which two CW shows just got renewed, as well as which pilots are being turned into series? That story is here.
