Does No Tomorrow have a future? Via The Hollywood Reporter, the series’ executive producer says there are plans for the upcoming CW show.
The hour-long comedy “centers on a risk-averse, straight-laced woman, Evie (Tori Anderson) who falls for a freewheeling man named Xavier (Joshua Sasse) who lives life to the fullest believing that the apocalypse is coming in roughly eight months because of a global warming-induced asteroid.”
When asked about the show’s built-in ticking clock, EP Corinne Brinkerhoff said it won’t end the show after one season:
We have a plan for what happens after May 22, absolutely. Its just a function of when we want to reach that day within our show. We don’t necessarily want to put too fine a point on exactly where we are. The idea is to stay in the moment, live in the moment. And that carries through regardless of whether we’re at eight months or seven months or six months.”
Brinkerhoff also said the show is joyful despite its apocalyptic storyline:
There’s certainly plenty of apocalyptical doom kind of shows, and we wanted an apocalyptical joy kind of show. As paradoxical as that might sound, I think that there’s something that we all fundamentally understand and relate to about thinking, ‘What if it’s true and what if his math all really checks out?’ What are we all needing to better seize the day and stay in the moment?”
No Tomorrow premieres on October 4th.
