Netflix UK’s import Frequency has been cancelled by U.S. network The CW after a single thirteen episode season, TVWise has learned.
Alongside Frequency, The CW also pulled the plug on No Tomorrow – which does not yet have a UK home (and is now unlikely to find one).
The cancellation had not been unexpected, given that the series failed to connect with audiences state-side; attracting an average audience of less than 1 million viewers and a 0.3 A18-49 rating.
Netflix acquired Frequency from Warner Bros. International Television Distribution back in October 2016 for multiple territories, including the UK. The streamer made new episodes available weekly, less than 24 hours after they initially aired on The CW.
The CW has now made calls on almost all of their existing series. Back in January the network handed out renewals to Arrow, The Flash, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Supernatural, Jane The Virgin, Supergirl and DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow; leaving only The Originals and iZombie in limbo. The former is not expected to return for another season, while the latter is expected to be renewed for a fourth season shortly.
