The CW has pulled the plug on a second rookie series: “Valor” has been canceled after a single season.
The news comes on the heels of “Life Sentence” also getting the hook at the network and makes for a 50-50 split of The CW’s new series this season. “Black Lightning” and “Dynasty” will return in 2018-19.
“Valor” finished its run in January and was widely considered done after that. Several cast members have since taken roles in pilots for next season — including the two leads, Christina Ochoa (ABC’s “A Million Little Things”) and Matt Barr (The CW’s “Skinny Dip”).
The show averaged a 0.2 rating among adults 18-49 and 981,000 viewers for initial airings. A week of delayed viewing pushed it up to 0.3 and 1.43 million.
“Valor” one of three shows about military personnel that debuted this fall; CBS’ “SEAL Team” has been renewed, while “The Brave” is still awaiting word from NBC on its future.
“Valor” is the 42nd show canceled in 2017-18. The CW hasn’t yet made a decision on “iZombie,” its lone remaining series in limbo.
