A Look at The CW’s Failed Shows

‘Ringer’

Ringer had a fantastic cast that could’ve made the show great. The two main leads were played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. Gellar plays twins Siobhan and Bridget–but in a twist, Bridget masquerades as Siobhan after the twin’s “death.” The show’s biggest downfall was the writing.

‘Katy Keene’

Despite this being a Riverdale spinoff, We wanted this to succeed. Lucy Hale stars as the fashion designer Katy Keene trying to make it in the big city along with Josie from Riverdale. Each episode was filled with beautiful clothes and not-so-great writing. But what can you expect from the writers of Riverdale?

‘Significant Mother’

The plot of the show is that Nate’s roommate has been sleeping with Nate’s mother, and when he finds out, the two try to have a relationship. It was so uncomfortable to watch. If you’re looking for a show with a complicated love story, just watch Young and Hungry.

‘The Messengers’

In The Messengers, five people come back to life after dying in a comet’s shockwave. After they return, each discovers new powers that might stop the Rapture. This show had potential, but We understand why some people didn’t like it. There were quite a bit of biblical undertones, and that’s not for everybody.

‘Frequency’

Raimy Sullivan, played by Peyton List, works to solve a murder case from years ago. She talks to her dead father through ham radio, and together they solve the mystery and fix her life. It was interesting to see the “butterfly effect” in action since we don’t see it much in shows other than The Flash.

‘Hellcats’

Honestly, Hellcats was a better cheer story than Netflix’s Bring It On: Worldwide #Cheersmack. Why did we have to get that dumpster fire movie instead of this show? Hellcats follows Marti as she joins the cheerleading squad at her college to keep her scholarship. There’s a great balance between drama and touching moments throughout the show.

‘Star-Crossed’

If networks are going to cancel shows that have cliffhangers, at least give us one final episode that ends the story nicely. Star-Crossed was about two literally star-crossed lovers, human Emery and alien Roman. Roman’s species, the Atrians, are trying to cohabitate the Earth with humans, but it’s not going too well. Each episode had me on the edge of my seat.
