The CW cancels another Arrowverse show as Naomi ends after just one season

May 15th, 2022 by Marc Comments

A little over a week after The CW pulled the plug on two of its Arrowverse’s show, Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow, another series gets the death knell.

Naomi has been canceled mere days after it aired the finale of season one.

Sadly, this is no surprise as even our reviewer Todd has been predicting the show was so bad that a second season must be in doubt for the past few weeks and, yes, he was on the money.

The series kicked off in January and with its termination, it means only The Flash, Superman and Lois and Stargirl are still flying the Arrowverse flag. The Flash was recently renewed for a ninth season, though there is talk that it will be it’s last. Stargirl is waiting for its third season to air and Superman and Lois was also recently renewed for a third season but, given, the last few weeks, we’d expect these shows to all wrap production forever after these runs end.

While no exact reason has been given, it’s widely speculated that HBO Max’s streaming service is why all these shows are being pulled as it has big plans for DC properties, moving forward.

Whatever the reasons, while it had a great run, it looks like the Arrowverse is coming to an end.

When a supernatural event shakes her hometown of Port Oswego to the core, Naomi (Kaci Walfall) sets out to uncover its origins, with a little help from her fiercely loyal best friend Annabelle (Mary-Charles Jones). She also has the support of her adoptive, doting parents; veteran military officer Greg (Barry Watson) and linguistics teacher Jennifer (Mouzam Makkar). After an encounter with Zumbado (Cranston Johnson), the mysterious owner of a used car lot, leaves her shaken, Naomi turns to tattoo parlor owner Dee (Alexander Wraith), who becomes her reluctant mentor.

The series also starred Daniel Puig, Aidan Gemme, Will Meyers, and Camila Moreno. The character Naomi originally debuted in her own standalone comic book series in 2019, which was co-written by Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker. It was illustrated by Jamal Campbell.

Ava DuVernay and Jill Blankenship co-wrote “Naomi” and executive produced along with by Paul Garnes of ARRAY Filmworks. Amanda Marsalis directed and co-executive produced the pilot episode. The series is produced by ARRAY Filmworks in association with Warner Bros. Television.

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….
