No Tomorrow is a romantic comedy-drama series that aired on The CW from October 4, 2016 to January 17, 2017.[1] The series was developed by Corinne Brinkerhoff, and is based on the Brazilian series Como Aproveitar o Fim do Mundo (How to Enjoy the End of the World), which aired on Rede Globo in 2012.[2] The show is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.[3] The series was canceled on May 8, 2017; five days later, an epilogue to the series was released.[4][5]

Plot[edit]

The series follows a woman who lives in Seattle and becomes involved with a free-spirited man who inspires her to make an "apocalyst", a list of things to do before the world ends—which he claims will be in eight months and twelve days. With the help of her friends, they try to find out if he can be taken seriously while completing the bucket list.[6]

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

No Tomorrow has received generally positive reviews from television critics. On Rotten Tomatoes the season has a rating of 90%, based on 29 reviews, with an average rating of 5.9/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "No Tomorrow is a gentle, easy to digest rom-com that serves up a strong supporting cast, charming lead performances, and a hefty dose of fun."[20] On Metacritic, the season has a score of 69 out of 100, based on 23 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[21]

The editors of TV Guide have placed No Tomorrow eighth among the top ten picks for the most anticipated new shows of the 2016–2017 season. In its review, Sadie Gennis writes

"Tori Anderson and Joshua Sasse are infectiously charming in this offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who discovers that her dream man is an apocalypse truther. It's a weird premise, sure, but No Tomorrow leans into its own absurdity, populating the show with surreal, strange characters (including one who speaks so quietly he needs subtitles) and delightful prop comedy that is rarely seen in one-hour shows. And while it's unlikely that No Tomorrow will help the CW continue its Golden Globes streak, it fits in perfectly on the network alongside fellow genre-pushing rom-coms Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."[22]
