CW Cancels 'Containment'; Greenlights 'Riverdale' 'Frequency' & 'No Tomorrow'

The CW has greenlit three new series for the network including Archie Comics inspired, Riverdale.

The news comes just after Supergirl has moved networks from CBS to The CW.

Riverdale “is a surprising and subversive take on Archie (KJ Apa), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Veronica (Camila Mendes), Jughead Jones (Cole Sprouse), Josie (Ashleigh Murray) and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life – the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome fašade.”

Frequency and No Tomorrow also join the network.

No Tomorrow, which is based on a Brazilian format and follows a risk-averse, straight arrow, female procurement manager (Tori Anderson) at an Amazon-like distribution center who falls in love with a freewheeling man (Joshua Sasse) who lives life to the fullest. Together, they embargo on a quest to fulfill their individual bucket lists to comedic and poignant results.

Frequency is a reimagining of the New Line Cinema film. In a twist from the feature, it centers on a female police detective (Peyton E. List) who in 2016 discovers she is able to speak via a ham radio with her estranged father (also a detective) who died in 1996.
They forge a new relationship while working together on an unresolved murder case, but unintended consequences of the “butterfly effect” wreak havoc in the present day.

Meanwhile, the network also announced that freshman series Containment would not continue after this season.
