Press: What does Peyton List’s new casting in a pilot mean for Frequency?

So as many may know, and if you don’t, Peyton List (Raimy) was casted in a pilot for CBS called Mission Control. She is not the lead in the series.

What does this mean for Frequency? NOTHING. Nothing has changed. We still support the show and work on getting it renewed. Apparently Peyton was hired in a “second position” to Frequency. Meaning if and when Frequency gets renewed, they will have to release her to do Frequency. That’s also to assume that the new series gets picked up as it is just a pilot.

So have no fear Freqs. Just keep waving your Freq flags, spread the word about the show and try and get more people watching, keep telling the CW and Netflix you want a second season, and lets not lose hope.

Frequency Fan Exclusive Q&A

Hey guys, I’m excited to announce that we will be doing a Q&A with Riley (and hopefully other cast members). So if you have a question that you would like answered, submit them below. We will see if we can get them answered on Periscope or some sort of video platform. It has been too long since we seen our faves, am I right?

Press: You should probably binge ‘Frequency’ on Netflix if you’re hoping for a Season 2

From the jump, we knew “Frequency” wasn’t likely to get a full season on The CW, considering the absolute deluge of shows the network had saved on its lineup for spring premieres. Still, we’re bummed the show has completed its first-season run so soon.

After a long and tiring chase for the Nightingale Killer, Frank (Riley Smith) and Raimy (Peyton List) thought they’d finally caught the man and put him away. Unfortunately, his stepson was the real perpetrator, which led to some pretty explosive consequences in the final moments of Wednesday’s (Jan. 25) finale.

Luckily for fans, with renewal still up in the air for “Frequency,” the Season 1 finale could serve as either the end to a pretty awesome series… Or a launching point for a new chapter.

With Robbie (David Lipper) still on the loose — and stalking Raimy’s engagement party from afar — and the radio that connects her with her father in 1996 now broken, there are quite a few balls left up in the air. On the other hand, she did manage to save her mother and win back her fiancé, so Raimy’s life isn’t quite the disaster it used to be — thanks to her decision to meddle with the past.

Screener decided to go straight to the source, executive producer Jeremy Carver, to ask about the show’s chances of renewal and what a Season 2 might look like if that days comes.

“We leave things open, and we close some loops as well,” Carver says of writing a season finale that might have to be a series finale. “Every good show is still going to leave open danglers and cliffhangers when it comes to the next season, and we’re no different.”

As far as a potential Season 2 goes, there’s no confirmation of renewal yet, but that doesn’t mean the writers aren’t tossing around ideas about where Raimy and Frank will go next, and what’s on tap for future storylines.

“I think over the course of Season 1 there’s a lot of things that we discussed that we sort of left on the shelf, so I think we as a staff are really excited to push Raimy and Frank into maybe some new season-long mysteries that they might work on together… There’s a couple things that happen in the finale that actually have pretty significant consequences to the overall arc of the show as a series. That’s me being very vague and not wanting to spoil anything.”

Spoilers aside, it does sound like there are a few solid plans on the books for a potential Season 2. The crux of the show is the time-travel aspect and the father-daughter relationship it allows, which should and probably will always be part of the show.

“I think we had them engage in some other mystery, while the events and people from Season 1 never quite go away. One of the things that we really loved about the season was this idea of ‘What is science and what is fate?’ We continue to ask those questions into Season 2 and beyond. A little bit like ‘Supernatural,’ you might have a new sort of season-long mystery in Season 2, but the old enemies and relationships never quite go away.”

Personally, we’d love to see Raimy set out on a new mission to find a way to save her father. After all, in the original movie, John (Jim Caviezel) — the character Raimy is based on — ultimately finds a way to keep his mother and his father alive while stopping the Nightingale killer for good.

The only way we’ll get that inevitable storyline though, is if people turn up to watch the show while its renewal is hanging in the balance. Luckily, Netflix will come to our rescue yet again.

In an pretty unprecedented move, The CW and Netflix have made a deal to release “Frequency” Season 1 for streaming one week after its finale episode.

“It’s so important to our show because I think the network, while they’ve done nothing but be incredibly supportive of the show, they would like to see — as would we — some significant viewership on Netflix, which we think the show is perfectly primed to deliver,” Carver explains. “It’s not everything, but to be frank about it, it’s very important that folks who enjoy the show recommend the show to their friends and family and let them take a look at it on Netflix … That can only help towards giving us a second season.”

“Frequency” is available for streaming on Netflix starting the morning of Thursday, Feb. 2.

Press | Video: Frequency Star Riley Smith Explains How It’s Different From Other Time Travel Shows

It’s the season of time travel. This year, on The CW alone, three shows deal with time travel: The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Frequency. On other networks, there’s also Timeless, 12 Monkeys, Time After Time, Making History, and some others that have at least a few elements of time travel in the story. Of those, four are new this year. That’s a lot of time travel and manipulating the timeline, so it’s easy to get lost within them.

Luckily each is handling time travel a little bit differently. For Frequency, there’s not any direct travel, but rather time communication – people chatting using a mysterious CB radio twenty years apart. The butterfly effect is felt, though, as that communication gets the main characters, Raimy and her father Frank Sullivan, into a lot of trouble very quickly.

“I didn’t realize that the time thing is such a popular thing, that was a random stroke of luck with me picking this script early,” star Riley Smith, who plays Frank, told Comicbook.com in an exclusive interview. “Then it was lucky that not only were they popular during pilot season, but then actually got picked up.”

While he gets it that all this time travel and science fiction gets lumpted together by some people, he really sees them as having only very surface similarities.

“It’s funny to me, though, that we get compared to the other ones, I know Timeless is one we get compared to a lot. I think that we’re all so different, especially ours because it’s so much more rooted in reality and rooted in the family connection, the drama; the time element is more something that’s a payoff immediately, and makes it more exciting, too.

“I think that what I read, and what we’re really trying to portray is the heart of the matter, the relationship between Frank, Raimy, and Julie Sullivan.”

That relationship, between Raimy and her parents, is tested early and often. When she uses the radio to save her father’s life twenty years in the past, it leads directly to her mother’s death, and the father-daughter team have to work together across two decades to save her life, too. Smith praised the work of showrunner Jeremy Carver, who he called a “genius,” and said that every script he gets blows him away. He loves that they’re creating “a smart show that makes [the audience] think, and keeps them on the edge of their seats.”

As for acting opposite Peyton List (Raimy) when they’re always just talking on a radio, the pair have come up with a unique solution, and it involves knitting.

“Peyton and I have 12 years of experience reading together,” Smith explained. “Whether we have each other in the room or not, I can hear her take [in my head] of her lines. But we made a deal with each other to be off camera during the radio scenes. So I’ll sit in the corner with a little pen flashlight and just read the lines, vice versa for her. She always knits while she’s off camera. I don’t know who she’s knitting for, I ask her if she’s gonna knit me a blanket with all her off camera time. I’ll be sitting there tweeting with my phone. That’s what we do! It’s just a whole day of sitting in a corner, a dark corner.”

As for what’s next for Frank and company, Smith said that he can’t reveal much, but promised “a lot of twists and turns, a lot changes, and it gets very exciting.”

Frequency airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW, directly after Arrow. Watch the full interview above for more about the series and Smith’s career.
