The CW has made it official, canceling softly rated freshman dramas Frequency and No Tomorrow.
Both series got off to a slow start in the fall and neither got a back order — the first time in the CW’s 11-year history that no new fall series received a full-season order.
Neither No Tomorrow, based on a Brazilian format, nor Frequency, based on the 2000 movie, got traction despite a marketing push and strong lead-ins. The shows averaged a paltry 0.26-0.27 adults 18-49 Live+same day rating for their 13-episode seasons.
There was a little window for Frequency and No Tomorrow to come back if they had a big spike in their Netflix runs this spring, but that did not happen. Meanwhile, the CW brass are said to like all six of the network’s pilots, making for a very tough field with six strong contenders. With nine existing scripted series already renewed for next season, the fates of Frequency and No Tomorrow were sealed.
Congratulations to Tori and the rest of the cast of No Tomorrow for the nomination!
The Monte Carlo TV Festival has unveiled the nominees for its 57th Golden Nymph Awards. There is a varied range of international fare in the mix, and also a crop of recognizable names — some of which haven’t found big awards attention domestically.
Notably, it’s interesting to see the CW’s No Tomorrow, which did only 13 episodes and is facing cancellation, nominated in the Comedy Series category. So is NBC’s Superstore, now in its 3rd season, but with no major mentions at home.

Bright young thing
Statuesque and photogenic, with a megawatt smile, Tori Anderson makes the perfect subject for a splashy poolside Watch! photo shoot. In these gorgeous web-exclusive photos, the blonde bombshell and star of The CW’s No Tomorrow, embodies living in the moment. In the series, Tori’s risk-averse and regimented character Evie Covington has traded caution for a more carefree life with the help of a free-spirited new friend. Get to know Tori in these fun interview nuggets and check out this lively behind-the-scenes video.
Tori Anderson was born in Edmonton, Alberta and raised on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The second youngest from a family of five children, Tori and her siblings grew up immersed in the arts and tasked with endless farm chores.
Tori Anderson got her acting start in her home country of Canada. At 15, she landed her first professional gig in a pilot episode of the sci-fi drama series Tru Calling. After high school, she moved to Toronto to pursue acting and received a BFA from York University’s Acting Conservatory.
Tori knows how to diversify
Her recent television credits include a recurring role as Sabine on Killjoys and a lead role on The Other Kingdom. On the big screen, Tori Anderson has appeared in the films Killing Daddy, The Mermaid Chair, To Have and to Hold and Cable Beach.
Tori Anderson and co-star Joshua Sasse went out to dinner a few times before shooting No Tomorrow just to get to know each other and help spark good onscreen chemistry.
“Romance is what drags her in,” muses Tori about her No Tomorrow character Evie Covington. “It’s like an electric shock that surges through her body; she’s never felt that kind of connection with someone.”
One of Tori Anderson’s favorite moments working on No Tomorrow: the first table read with the people behind the show, including co-creator Corinne Brinkerhoff and executive producer Scott McCabe. “It was amazing to hear the story come alive,” says Tori. “A great moment seeing all the characters who are so zany and fun become these three-dimensional people.”
Tori Anderson thinks that Evie Covington’s carpe diem awakening has a trickle-down effect with the other characters in the show. “You see them either breaking out of their shell or just going after what they want—not sitting back and letting their life pass them by.”
In real life, this “seize the day” attitude resonates with Tori Anderson and her acting career aspirations as well. “I’m so grateful it actually has happened, because there’s a lot of really talented actors out there that don’t get a shot and it’s sad,” she shares. “But you have to keep going after your dream, keep chasing it.”
Hey guys! I’ve added a bunch of additional photos of Tori taken through the years. Check them out:
I’ve added episodic stills from the last two episodes of No Tomorrow for season one into the gallery.

Free People, Rag & Bone, band t-shirts, vintage finds, and plaid shirts from my dad’s closet.
Canadian style is…
Diverse – anything you want it to be.
What’s your favourite item in your wardrobe and what’s the story behind it? Where did you find it? How much did it cost? Why is it your favourite?
This vintage vest from the 70’s that was in my Mom’s costume room. It is black suede and embroidered with vines and flowers. Just looking at it makes my heart happy. One of the best parts about it was also that it happened to be free.

You have a blank wall and need to find a piece of art to fill the space. What would you hang?
Tom Thompson. His work is distinctly Canadian. My aunt Lynn Malin, the way she uses colours brightens up any room. I have obsessed over her work my whole life.
