There's no official word on The Tomorrow People's fate just yet, but with the Season 1 finale right around the corner, the odds don't look good.

It's not that the ratings for The Tomorrow People are that bad, but The CW has had so many other more successful shows this season that bringing this one back just may not make sense logistically.

Fantasy gets another year! The CW announces early renewals >>

The network has already announced its early renewals, which include bringing back three veteran shows SupernaturalArrow and The Vampire Diaries. Newcomers Reign and The Originals have also been renewed by The CW for second seasons.

Now that The 100 is performing well, and all signs are pointing to Hart of Dixie getting a Season 4, The CW's renewal roster is looking a bit full.

Oh, and did we mention the network also has six pilots in the works, according to Deadline? Most notably, The CW 2014 pilots include The Flash, based on the popular hero comics, iZombie, which follows a med student who must eat brains to survive and Supernatural spin-off Supernatural: Bloodlines.

To sum up: OK ratings just won't cut it on this network right now with so many shows shining.

That being said, The Tomorrow People did recently move to Monday nights with fellow newbie show Star-Crossed, which gave The CW its most watched Monday last week in more than a year, according to Zap2It.

The Tomorrow People follows the story of Stephen, a high school senior who learns he has special powers because of his advanced genes, which mark the next stage in human evolution. While these powers, including telekinesis and teleportation, sound fantastic, things get complicated thanks to a secret government organization called Ultra that seeks to control The Tomorrow People and use them for their own gain.

The show has managed to develop a cult following during its run but, like a lot of iconic cult shows, it has struggled to impress with ratings and critics during its run.

There's no word yet on when the network plans to announce the fate of the show.

The Season 1 finale of The Tomorrow People airs on May 5 on The CW.

What do you think? Should The Tomorrow People be renewed for Season 2 or should The CW cancel the show?
