Generally speaking, The CW’s most successful TV series, in terms of Nielsen ratings, are its DC Comics-inspired programs, paranormal fare like Supernatural, and YA dramas like Riverdale. Now the littlest network is angling for dramedy fans with the new Life Sentence TV show. What’s its life expectancy? Will Life Sentence be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
From creators Erin Cardillo and Richard Keith, Life Sentence stars Lucy Hale, Dylan Walsh, Gillian Vigman, Brooke Lyons, Carlos PenaVega, Jayson Blair, and Elliot Knight. The CW TV series centers on Stella Abbott (Hale). After a lethal cancer diagnosis, Stella spent eight years living her life like any dying young woman might. She did things like face her fears, travel the world, and even married a stranger on a whim. After she learns she’s been cured, Stella must return to living like someone with a whole life ahead of her and help her loved ones to do the same. **Status update, below.
