CANCELLED: THE TOMORROW PEOPLE With Robbie Amell Not Picked Up For Second Season

Remember #AmellWednesdays? The CW gave The Tomorrow People a great launch last Fall, with hash tag #AmellWednesdays in honour of cousins Stephen Amell from Arrow and Robbie Amell from The Tomorrow People. But this story about special-powered young people — blessed/cursed with the three Ts: telepathy, teleportation and telekinesis — could not hold Arrow’s audience and was moved to Monday nights in March. Another filmed-in-Vancouver sci-fi series The 100 replaced it on Wednesday nights and is doing better so far with a second season renewal today. What went wrong? Perhaps the showrunners made a mistake starting Robbie Amell’s Stephen in high school. If there had been a second season they planned a two-year time jump. Or perhaps The Tomorrow People didn’t feel real compared to the “Lord of the Flies writ large” story of 100 juvenile delinquents on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Please comment and let us know what you think happened to promising series The Tomorrow People.

  1. RE-AIR THE SHOW AND YOU WILL DOUBLE THE RATINGS FOR THE FACT THAT YOU TOOK THE SHOW AWAY AND EVERYONE THEN REALISED HOW BRILLIANT IT WAS AND ALL THE POSSIBILITIES AND POTENTIAL IT HAS, AND WHEN YOU BRING IT BACK (HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BECAUSE IT SEEMS LIKE A BIG IF) EVERYONE WILL BE EXCITED AND ACTUALLY ARRANGE FOR THEM TO WATCH IT PEACEFULLY EVERY WEEK
