Get ready for the new daily show

The CW bringing us a Canaries series spin-off from Arrow

September 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

As we all get braced for the big bye-bye to Stephen Amell’s Green Arrow/Oliver Queen at the end of this, the eighth season, it looks like the story will not exactly end for this corner of the Arrowverse.

Word is The CW are looking at developing a female-centric DC series focusing on Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak/Green Arrow and Katie Cassidy Rodgers (Laurel Lance) and Juliana Harkavy (Dinah Drake) as… the Canaries.

Now, we know that The CW has been looking at replacing Arrow with a new series to sit alongside Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Black Lightning and naw Batwoman, so this does seem quite likely, with The CW being very comfortable with putting ladies at the front of their hero stories.

Whatever the show turns out to be, Arrow showrunner/executive producer Beth Schwartz will co-write the episode with Arrow‘s Marc Guggenheim, Jill Blankenship, and Oscar Balderrama.

So whatever it is, something is coming…

Meanwhile, here’s new trailers for The CW’s Arrowverse shows:

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
