For the first time in a decade, The CW has canceled nearly half of its roster. The network’s recent cancellations include new shows and long-running ones. So, has Naomi been canceled?
Will there be a season 2 of Naomi?
Unfortunately for fans, Naomi was one of the TV shows that recently got the ax. The show’s cancellation was announced on May 12th, just two days after its season 1 finale aired. The superhero drama was canceled, alongside its fellow The CW series Dynasty, Charmed, In the Dark, 4400, Legacies, Roswell, New Mexico.
Why was Naomi canceled?
Though The CW didn’t reveal a reason for Naomi’s cancellation, the decision to end the series was likely due to the network’s potential sale. As revealed last January, The CW owners ― Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount Global ― are exploring a sale of the broadcaster, with local TV station giant Nexstar considered a possible buyer.
What was Naomi about?
Created by Ava DuVernay and Jill Blankenship, Naomi centers on Naomi McDuffie (Kaci Walfall), a comic book-loving teenager and the host of a Superman fan website. After a supernatural event occurs in Port Oswego, Oregon, Naomi sets out to determine its origins with help from her best friend, her supporting adoptive parents, and a tattoo shop owner with a secret origin.
Based on the comic book series of the same name co-written by Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker and illustrated by Jamal Campbell, Naomi also starred Cranston Johnson, Alexander Wraith, Mary-Charles Jones, Mouzam Makkar, Daniel Puig, Camila Moreno, Will Meyers, Aidan Gemme, and Barry Watson.
