Why Did CW Cancel Tom Swift After 5 Episodes
Now, this is the question which probably even the birds around the houses will be interested to know how a show which didn’t even deliver a proper finale is being discontinued from the network and leaving viewers on a cliffhanger.
The cancellation news has come just after a month of releasing the episodes. The reason stated by the network for the cancellation of Tom Swift after 5 episodes are that it didn’t gather enough ratings and reviews as per the show’s plan.
The series didn’t quite do its job in finding a loyal and sufficient audience despite its gripping narrative. The 5 episodes delivered by the series were only able to gather 0.1 ratings so far.
Considering CW’s reputation for releasing and producing shows that sets the benchmark for other networks in producing shows drawing top ratings and loyal viewership, Tom Swift did not perform to their expectations.
Although, the show was heavily celebrated for featuring the first gay, Black lead on a Network show and for using a cast that’s primarily Black.
According to Tian Richards’s interviews with a few publications, he expressed his joy that the series premiered during both Pride Month and Juneteenth this year.
Those worried about giving Tom Swift’s first season away can take a chill break as CW is finding a forever home for the first season to stay with the fans.
