‘Riverdale,’ ‘Frequency’ and ‘No Tomorrow’ picked up at The CW
The CW has added three new series to its 2016-17 roster: “Riverdale,” “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow.”
The three series join “Supergirl,” which is moving over from CBS, on the network’s schedule for next season. Where they’ll all go is a very open question: At the moment, The CW has 15 hour-long scripted series and 10 hours a week to program, so at least a third of them won’t premiere in the fall.
“Riverdale” is a live-action adaptation of the Archie comics with Cole Sprouse, Lili Reinhart and Luke Perry headlining the cast.
“Frequency” is based on the 2000 movie of the same name and centers on a police detective (Peyton List, “Mad Men,” “The Tomorrow People”) who discovers she can communicate via ham radio with her dead father (Riley Smith, “Nashville”).
“No Tomorrow” is a dramedy about a straitlaced young woman who falls for a guy who doesn’t think beyond the present — because he thinks the apocalypse is imminent. Tori Anderson and Josh Sasse (“Galavant”) star.
