The CW’s first-year show “No Tomorrow” is fulfilling the implication of its title: It’s been canceled. Fellow rookie “Frequency” is done as well.

Neither show was able to gain much traction during its run, and the cancellations were expected. The CW made it official Monday afternoon.

The two shows pulled down identical 0.3 ratings among adults 18-49 on the night they aired. “Frequency” fared slightly better in viewers with 936,000 per episode to “No Tomorrow’s” 794,000. Neither show got much of a bump from a week of DVR playback, with “No Tomorrow’s” 18-49 rating unchanged and “Frequency” only rising to a 0.4.

The only first-year CW show to make it to next season is “Riverdale.” That flips the script a bit for the network: In the prior two years, only one rookie each season (“Containment” in 2016 and “The Messengers” in 2015) got the hook.

The CW has yet to make renewal decisions on two veteran shows, “The Originals” and “iZombie.” The rest of the lineup has already been picked up for next season. The network announces its 2017-18 lineup next week.

“Frequency” and “No Tomorrow” join these shows that have been canceled this season.
