The CW Passes on 'Arrow' Spinoff, 'Green Arrow & the Canaries'

Arrow is not getting a spinoff after all!

The CW has reportedly passed on ordering the Arrow spinoff series Green Arrow and The Canaries, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show aired as a back-door pilot during Arrow‘s final season and followed Mia Smoak, played by Katherine McNamara, and the Canaries, Katie Cassidy‘s Laurel Lance and Juliana Harkavy‘s Dinah Drake.

Arrow ended its eight-season run last January and the finale teased the arrival of another DC Superhero, the Green Lantern. Fans of The CW’s DC-verse still have plenty of shows to look forward to, with Ava DuVernay set to write a series based on the character Naomi with former Arrow writer Jill Blankenship and the new Superman series Superman & Lois airing this February.

Check out what other CW shows have been renewed or cancelled for the 2020-2021 television season.

The series, called Naomi, follows “a teen girl’s journey from her small northwestern town to the heights of the multiverse. When a supernatural event shakes her hometown to the core, Naomi sets out to uncover its origins, and what she discovers will challenge everything we believe about our heroes.”

The character first debuted in her own standalone comic book series in 2019. In the comics, Naomi had energy-based powers, plus the ability to transform into a superpowered form that granted her incredible strength and other abilities.

The CW recently revealed the shows on their network heading for renewal and cancellation…

'Arrow' Series Finale Adds Major DC Superhero to the Arrowverse!

Spoilers ahead! Don’t read if you haven’t watched the series finale of Arrow.

Arrow may have come to an end, but the series finale teased fans with the arrival of another DC favorite superhero!

The finale saw the end of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) sacrificing himself in order to reboot the universe and create the combined Earth Prime universe that all the Arrowverse heroes now live in.

At the end of the episode, the Green Arrow’s bodyguard John Diggle (David Ramsey) teases new adventures to come, and we see a meteor streak across the sky. Diggle then goes to the crash site and finds a box with an emerald ring inside – aka the power ring worn by The Green Lantern.

For years, it has been a long-running theory by Arrow fans that Diggle would turn out to be Green Lantern John Stewart. The show’s been dropping Easter eggs on that theory for years with us learning that Diggle’s grandfather’s last name was “Stewart” and once in an alternate universe version of the Flash once asked Diggle “where’s your ring?” when he met him.

“That was something that we’ve been working our way towards for a good long time now,” showrunner Marc Guggenheim shared with Deadline. “I think for maybe about a year, year-and-a-half we’ve known that this was a moment we’re going to be able to do, and it made sense to do it in the finale because my attitude is that even though the show ends, as long as the characters are alive the characters continue on. One of the things we wanted to do with the finale was give you a sense as to what their post-show trajectories would be. And certainly, Diggle’s is probably the most intriguing.”

Here’s to hoping we get more from The Green Lantern in the future!

CW Sets Backdoor Pilot From 'Arrow' for Katie Cassidy, Juliana Harkavy & Katherine McNamara

Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy could be sticking around for more Arrow tales in a backdoor pilot from the long-running series.

The planned show would also involve Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak, Deadline reports.

The backdoor pilot would focus on Mia, Katie‘s Laurel and Juliana‘s Dinah following the end of Arrow after an eight-season run.

“The fact that seven years ago, we introduced Arrow, who would have thought it would have spawned six shows, a whole universe that they managed to create. It’s quite a remarkable feat,” CW President Mark Pedowitz shared back in August about the potential for more spinoffs.

“We believe these franchises, this universe will continue for many years, so it’s important to ensure that you have characters that will keep the fans coming back. How that universe plays out, time will tell,” he added.

The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman are all spinoffs from Arrow.

Tom Welling Joins Arrowverse's 'Crisis On Infinite Earths' Crossover As Superman!

Tom Welling is suiting back up as Superman!

Deadline just revealed that 42-year-old actor, who played the iconic Superman/Clark Kent role in Smallville, will return in the role in the 2019 Arrowverse crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Tom will join Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh in the special event.

“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville. Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it,” Arrow co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim said. “So when we first started talking about Crisis on Infinite Earths, our first, second and third priorities were getting Tom to reprise his iconic role as Clark Kent. To say that we’re thrilled would be a Superman-sized understatement.”

Crisis on Infinite Earths will bring together all the major superhero shows on The CW this winter. Check out more details HERE!
