A collective cry was heard around the nation as news broke that the CW show The Tomorrow People would not be renewed for a second season. Our hearts broke for Robbie Amell, out newest CW obsession. We grew so fond of the young actor in just one, short season. We were, and still are, so disappointed. But we have found new hope… Robbie Amell ain’t going nowhere!
That’s right Tomorrow Fans, Robbie skipped right over that unemployment line and landed himself a great gig. He has been casted in the new CBS film called The DUFF. TheWrap reported that The DUFF is the story of a 17 year-old girl named Bianca who believes she is the DUFF or “designated ugly fat friend.” Robbie is set to play Wesley, a jock who Bianca enlists in her quest to overthrow the school’s evil queen Madison. Although the film sounds like a complete 180 from his work on The Tomorrow People, we are so excited to see him back in action and working on a comedy.
We aren’t the only ones excited about the new role. Robbie, himself, has taken to his socials to introduce us to his co-stars and producers. Take a look↓
As we mourn the loss of The Tomorrow People, we look to the future with great hope. We can’t wait to see the film and we know only good things lie ahead for Robbie Amell
