CW Boss Explains The Tomorrow People Cancelation, Wants More Supernatural

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:

Funny part is tomorrow people had higher viewing than batb ever had, bad choice and I did watch the entire set of batb that was on netflix, not a terrible series ill admit. But directly compared to tomorrow people it loses hands down. I love CW, supernatural, izombie, flash, arrow....I could go forever but my favorite series are all CW. Arrow personally best super hero type show ever made imo. Bring back tomorrow people!!!!


I thought this was a really good show and I'm disappointed that it has not returned. If not just in the UK.


LAME!! I LOVE THE TOMORROW PEOPLE! WANT MORE!! It's hard for me to find a show I enjoy but a year after the show aired I found it and sucked me right in. hopefully there will be a second season soon.


what the freak please reconsider


I want The Tomorrow People back! I haven't heard of this show until I watched it on Netflix :( I want more !


even though the tomorrow people has been cancelled a year ago i still feel disappointed and heartbroken that this amazing show has been cancelled ,i really wish that this show comes back i'm hoping for it until this very day and for as long as i can hold.


Please bring back The Tomorrow People!!!!!


Typical.. just like Alphas AXED.. 2 bloody good series' ended by a prat who thought he knew best.. The tomorrow people isnt the only thing that should be axed.. C.W bosses take heed... - Paul xXx


please please please bring back the tomorrow people. it was a great show and the season ended with an amazing start to a new season. its not too late to bring it back. please listen to the audience and bring it back. please.


We need season 2, the tomorow people i think has high potential eventhough it did not get high rates earlier but now everyone keep talking about it and feel disappointed to the director if the show wont be continued. We want more cara, stephen and john as well as the others. Keep this in mind. We want season 2.
