The sci-fi drama will not return.
May 8, 2017
It is being reported that The CW has decided against continuing with Frequency, opting to cancel the new series after just one season. The news does not come as much of a surprise, as the show's 13-episode freshman run struggled to find an audience and never really generated much buzz.
As we reported back in November, things were not looking good after the network failed to add any additional episodes to show's initial order. While there was a small amount of hope due to a deal with streaming giant Netflix, the lack of a back order all but sealed its fate.
Based on the 2000 film of the same name, Frequency followed a woman who never got the chance to really know her father before he was killed when she was only eight years old. 20 years later she is shocked to hear her dad's voice come through his broken old ham radio, transmitting from 1996. But even though communication is now possible, changing history proves to have a dramatic affect on her life in the present.
Watching the last episode while knowing the series was almost certainly to be cancelled, eliminated all cliffhanger affects. Fortunately, there was some closure on key aspects (as you noted) so it even felt like a real end. The destruction of the radio was interesting and was fitting (easy come, easy go, easy come back).
To set up for the never to come second season, they should have extinguished the night stalker character for good and had our hero start a brand new life and lose her cop career like it never happened (see how I did that) and get a new cast of actors for her new life. And of course - there will be some major new something that has to be fixed! Papa, can you hear me?
This is a reply to Aly.
It does end on a cliffhanger. The Nightingale Killer is not in jail at the end of the Series Finale. They wrapped up the rest of the show pretty well though. I'm glad I finished the show!!! I hope this helped!!!
I don't mind watching if there is some sort of 'wrap up'
Thanks for any input!
