CW Picks Up ‘The Flash’ & ‘The Messengers’ To Series, Cancels Star-Crossed and Tomorrow People and Renews The100!

 

Big day at the CW today, The Flash has been picked up to series, which was no big surprise I think, and also The Messengers has gotten a series pick up.

 

The Flash:

 

Barry Allen is a Central City assistant police forensics investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fanboy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante.

 

CAST: Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Rick Cosnett, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanaugh, John Wesley Shipp, Michelle Harrison, Patrick Sabongui

TEAM: Greg Berlanti (w, ep), Andrew Kreisberg (w, ep), Geoff Johns (w), David Nutter (d, ep), Sarah Schechter (ep)

 

The Messengers:

When a mysterious object crashes down to Earth, a group of seemingly unconnected strangers dies from the energy pulse. But then they awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending apocalypse.

 

CAST: Shantel VanSanten, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Joel Courtney, Jon Fletcher, Diogo Morgado, Craig Frank TEAM: Basil Iwanyk (ep), Eoghan O’Donnell (w, co-ep), Kent Kubena (ep) Ava Jamshidi (co-ep), Stephen Williams (d)

 

There was also other news, The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed both have been cancelled after only one season. This was to expected, the ratings never were good but last few months they were bad. The 100 has been renewed for season two! I don't think anybody expected that before the series began but the ratings remainded steady and so The CW rewarded that! It's not been announced how much episodes season 2 will contain but it probably will be less than 22.

RATINGS: Tomorrow People Incouraging!

RATINGS: Tomorrow People Encouraging!

 

The CW’s freshman The Tomorrow People made a seamless transition to Mondays with a 0.4 in adults 18-49, even with its last airing on Wednesday. Incumbent Star-Crossed also matched its last week rating of 0.3 in 18-49 rating.

 

Still, Tomorrow People‘s performance was a big improvement over Beauty And The Beast’s 0.2 in the Monday 9 PM time period last week and its viewership (1.15 million) was the largest in the hour for the CW since The Gossip Girl finale in December 2012.

 

This certainly looks promising, for a second season. It's always tricky to change a broadcast day but the first episode on it's new night, it performed perhaps better than expected! Now hoping for a second season

Ratings: Revolution (NBC) & Tomorrow People (The CW) Down! Cancellation is just around the Corner!

 

Last week I was eager to report that Revolution had it's highest numbers since the season premiere, although unfortunately those numbers were adjusted down by a tenth, but this week the numbers dropped even further, to a 1.3 rating and 4.78 million in total viewers. I think it's time to get realistic and say that it would be a miracle if Revolution would be renewed for a third season. The creators should also realize this by now and I really hope they are gonna wrap up most storylines so the viewers, who's stayed with a series, get a satisfying finish.

 

Another series which is in bad weather is The CW's The Tomorrow People. When the series premiered a few months back, it had a 0.9 rating and 2.32 million in total viewers but since the pilot those ratings declined to a 0.53 rating and 1.46 million in total viewers with last weeks episode. This does not look good, it's not final yet but the ratings need to rise in order for The Tomorrow People to elude cancellation. So in the coming months it will be decided if this series will be renewed but personally I fear the worst.

CW Gives Full-Season Order to ‘The Tomorrow People’

 

Last month, the CW gave all of its new fall series (The Originals; The Tomorrow People & Reign) orders for additional scripts at the same time. And now the network is keeping its freshman class intact, giving all three series, dramas The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Reign, full-season orders.

 

The Tomorrow People has been very stable, logging a 0.6 18-49 rating for the past few weeks.  The CW’s new shows also have been strong DVR and digital performers. The network’s digital streaming of full episodes is up 50% season to date versus last season, and The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Reign see 84% more digital viewing than The CW’s new series last fall. 

 

I have seen the first two myself and although I like it, it's not yet what it could be. But of course I give it a bit of time so it can grow into something special, something that is rarely seen lately, audiences giving a series a chance to grow!

Spartacus Villain Brings Reign of Terror to The CW's Tomorrow People

 

Yet another Spartacus vet is headed to The CW’s Wednesday lineup.  Simon Merrells, who played the evil Marcus Crassus in Starz’ Spartacus: War of the Damned, is joining The Tomorrow People in a recurring role. According to exec producer Phil Klemmer, Merrells will play “somebody who has a lot of power over” Mark Pellegrino’s villain Jedikiah, adding, “We’re going to get to see him, hopefully, through the back half [of the season].”

 

The casting follows last week’s news that Merrells’ Spartacus co-star, Cynthia Addai Robinson, is joining Tomorrow People‘s Wednesday lead-in Arrow as DC Comics baddie Amanda Waller. And Arrow already counts Spartacus‘ Manu Bennett as a regular. The Tomorrow People premieres Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 9/8c.

Dan Stevens set to voice iconic 'Tomorrow People' character 

 

Dearly departed Downton Abbey fave Dan Stevens has been recruited by The Tomorrow People. The actor — who opted to leave the hit PBS series last season — has joined The CW’s new fall drama.

 

Downton Abbey alum Dan Stevens will lend his voice to the Greg Berlanti-produced Tomorrow People, voicing biological computer TIM, a character first established in the ’70s British version of the show and originally voiced by Canadian actor Philip Gilbert.

 

Stevens, who will next be seen alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in The Fifth Estate, is far from the first actor to be heard-but-not-seen on a TV series. Kristen Bell was the voice of Gossip Girl for six seasons, Bob Saget has been the voice of Future Ted on How I Met Your Mother for going on nine seasons, and Ron Howard acted as the uncredited narrator of Arrested Development during the show’s run.

The 100 & The Tomorrow People Remake have been picked up for Series by The CW

 

Both series were granted a pilot a few months back but not now The CW has ordered the first season for both shows, presumably for 22 episodes.

 

The Hundred, based on an upcoming novel of the same name by author Kass Morgan. Set nearly 100 years in the future, after nuclear war has destroyed society, the series will follow a group of juvenile delinquents sent back to Earth to make a run at colonizing old Terra Firma once again.

 

Based on a 1970’s British kids series of the same name, Tomorrow People will follow a group of young people scattered across the globe who are the “next stage in human evolution.” They’ll have powers such as telepathy and teleportation, and it sounds like this could also have a dash ofJumper thrown in for good measure. If the pilot is picked up, the show would focus on these disparate youth coming together to master their abilities to fight baddies.

 

The Selection, another possible tv series will not be commissioned. It looked like a copy of the hit movie "The Hunger Games" but apparently The CW does not see cash in it after all!

Heroes + Alphas = The Tomorrow People on CW

 

The network already has a hit on their hands with “Arrow”, based on the D.C. Comics superhero Green Arrow, and now it looks like they’ll be adding “The Tomorrow People” to their slate. The show will even have ties to “Arrow” in the form of producer Greg Berlanti, who is teaming up with college chum Julie Plec (producer on “The Vampire Diaries”) to develop and produce “The Tomorrow People” for the network.

 

Based on a ’70s British TV series, “The Tomorrow People” is …

 

the story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to defeat the forces of evil.

 

Basically, “Heroes” + “Alphas”.
