The CW Picks Up ‘Black Lightning’ to Series, Renews ‘iZombie,’ Cancels ‘Frequency’ and ‘No Tomorrow’

Well, it’s that time of year again where we find out what shows have made the cut and which ones haven’t. Over at The CW, most of their renewals have actually already been announced, with Supernatural and the DC shows getting renewed way back in January. Riverdale and The 100 were announced to be renewed earlier this spring as well. That only leaves a few strands hanging on the only broadcast network dominated by genre television, and it seems like we have that news now.

On the good news train, The CW is officially adding a fifth DC superhero show, as Black Lightning has been picked up to series. As for existing shows, both iZombie and The Originals have been renewed. While The Originals may not be my cup of tea, iZombie is literally one of the most fun shows on television.

On the bad news front, we finally have word on the fates of freshman series Frequency and No Tomorrow. Sadly both shows have been officially cancelled and won’t be back for second seasons. It’s really too bad as both shows were fairly enjoyable. This also means that Riverdale is the only new show to get picked up at the network this year.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
