CW Boss Explains The Tomorrow People Cancelation, Wants More Supernatural

by at . Comments

Supernatural: Bloodlines may be dead.

But the idea of a Supernatural spinoff is not.

Following the reveal of The CW fall schedule, President Mark Pedowitz jumped on a conference call with reporters and took a few minutes to explain why two shows are NOT included on his network's 2014-2015 lineup.

"We believe there is a really good brand in Supernatural. We felt the Supernatural [spin-off pilot Bloodlines] didn’t quite get there," he said of the series whose backdoor pilot was not well received by fans a couple weeks ago.

But Pedowitz did make it clear: "We know we want to develop... Supernatural spinoff for next season."

The executive also addressed his decision to renew Beauty and the Beast for a third season, while canceling The Tomorrow People.

"We’ve always said we’re a very different style of broadcast network,” he said, explaining BATB has more social engagement and international appeal than The Tomorrow People.

“We have situations where shows like Beauty have created upside potential … it’s a fan favorite it has a great international [interest]. Primarily, The Tomorrow People was a great show... [it] just didn’t have the same level of social engagement or digital side that Beauty and the Beast gets."

Here's a look at the new programs on The CW 2014-2015 schedule:

The Flash
The Flash stars Grant Gustin and centers on the speediest man in the world, scientist Barry Allen after he undergoes some major changes.

Unfortunately i think what this guy is saying is our opinion of this kick ass show doesnt matter. He had one of the best shows ever on his network and let it go. I hope someone else is smart enough to pick it up. I say everyone stop watching CW until they bring it back. There are decades worth of story I would watch. I'm sure funding wasn't an issue. Make it happen or we wont watch your channel.

Same story as noted before by someone else; I learned about the Tomorrow People less than 3 days ago...iv'e finished the entire first season in less than 2. Great show! I was very dissapointed to find out that it was cancled. It was very well put together IMO. I have never seen Beauty and the Beast and probably never will. I guess i loose out.

So if you decide to cancel another show that's on cw not meaning the arrow , flash, or the 100 but another show I personally believe everyone would love cw even more if you brought back the tomorrow people.

Couldn't they just put the tomorrow people on another channel or make it a Netflix show. That would be really cool. I have recently told my friends about the show and they love it, but I was a little further in the show than them and then I finished the first season and realized there was not a seconed reason . Though the story line of the first season was impinatrably amazing, I feal when they ended the first season open towards another season or towards questionable things , I think all it would take would be one more or possibly two more seasons.

This really sucks I've been waiting months for a new season of "The Tomorrow People" and you mean to tell me it's canceled. It was one of the many reasons I watched CW network. So sad to see a great show not returning for a new season. Maybe another network will pick up the show.

It lest give it more time, then if it still seems to be a problem OK then cancel it but what about all the hard work the actors them self put into this show and getting all of use the viewers to get into it. For us the viewers and for them the actors give this show another season.

They need to bring back the tomorrow people ASAP. Season 1 is on Netflix which means it will gain popularity and people will want a new season especially after they ended it. Bring back the tomorrow people!!
