NO TOMORROW Preview: First Look at The CW’s New Romantic Comedy

no tomorrow

NO TOMORROW introduces us to Evie Callahan (Tori Anderson), a risk-averse quality-control assessor who appreciates order and routine. Whenever she’s making a list, “make a list” is both the first thing on it and the first thing crossed off. But, as you can imagine, her regimented life has its drawbacks. Her on-again/off-again romance with the sweet, but soft-spoken Timothy (Jesse Rath) has sputtered out. Her career has stalled. Her boss, Deirdre (Amy Pietz), a petty tyrant, laughs off her ambitions.

But then Evie meets someone new — the charming and free-spirited Xavier Holliday (Joshua Sasse) — and the attraction is immediate. Xavier encourages Evie to “carpe that diem”, because it’s more fun that way. Also, the Apocalypse is nigh, according to Xavier.  He believes humankind has a mere eight months and twelve days until a runaway asteroid destroys us all. That’s why he made an Apocalyst – a tally of every last thing he wants to do before the world ends. So with the help of her friends – Hank (Jonathan Langdon), a diehard conspiracy theorist, and Kareema (Sarayu Blue), a droll nihilist – Evie must decide whether Xavier is certifiable and whether that even matters, if being with him means living her life more fully.
