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.

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 Flash' Halts Production After Positive Coronavirus Test

The Flash< is pressing pause.

The CW series has halted production after a team member working on the series tested positive for COVID-19, Deadline reported Sunday (November 29).

“The asymptomatic diagnosis was confirmed through the rigorous testing protocols implemented by The Flash studio Warner Bros. TV for all of its production employees. Out of an abundance of caution, production on The Flash has been temporarily suspended and contact tracing has been initiated,” the outlet reported.

The studio is now evaluating adjustments to the production schedule to resume filming without the affected employee and close contacts who are now self-isolating, according to the report.

The Flash, which is filming in Vancouver, had a delayed start in production among other series due to a backlog at a local lab processing the COVID-19 tests.

The CW recently revealed their latest renewals and cancellations.

'Black Lightning' Series Will End After Season 4 on The CW

The CW’s series Black Lightning will end after the upcoming fourth season.

The fourth and final season will air early next year and The CW has already ordered a backdoor pilot for a potential spinoff for Jordan Calloway‘s character Painkiller.

“When we first started the Black Lighting journey, I knew that Jefferson Pierce and his family of powerful Black Women would be a unique addition to the super hero genre,” series developer and executive producer Salim Akil said in a statement (via Variety). “The love that Blerds and all comic book fans around the globe have shown this series over the past three seasons proved what we imagined, Black People Want To See Themselves in all their complexities.”

Salim added, “Thank you to the phenomenal cast, writers and crew without whom none of this would’ve been possible. I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve been able to do and the moments we’ve been able to create in bringing DC’s first African-American family of super heroes to life for the culture. I’m very grateful to Peter Roth, Warner Bros. TV, Mark Pedowitz, The CW Network and Greg Berlanti for their partnership and support of my vision at every step of this journey.”

“While Season Four may be the end of one journey, I’m extremely excited to usher in a new chapter and continued collaboration with The CW as we tell the story of Painkiller,” Salim concluded.

Black Lightning stars Cress Williams, Christine Adams, China Anne McClain, Nafessa Williams, James Remar, Marvin Jones III, Jordan Calloway, and Damon Gupton.

The CW Has Released 9 Photos from the 'Supernatural' Series Finale & We're Already Emotional

The series finale of Supernatural will be airing in just a few days and The CW has released some photos from the last episode ever.

It has been over 15 years since the series began and “Carry On” will mark the 327th and final episode of the beloved show, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles.

Co-showrunner Andrew Dabb previously told TVLine that a “big chunk of our mythology” was wrapped up in last week’s episode.

The series finale “is more character-based and is more concerned with Sam, Dean and this family they’ve built around them than it is with figuring out the Case of the Week.”

Dabb added, “Sam and Dean started this journey together, and they are ending this journey together. Do they end it in the same place? Do they end it in the same way? Are they both on the same page when it ends? That remains to be seen in the last episode. But the show started about these two guys, and it ends about these two guys.”

You can catch the final episode of Supernatural on Thursday (November 19) at 9/8c on The CW.

Supernatural actor Misha Collins just confirmed something that happened to his character Castiel in his final episode.

“The move was designed to allow production to resume after leading lady Benoist returned from maternity leave,” THR reported.

“The decision to wrap the series arrives a year after The CW parted ways with Arrow, the show that ushered the younger-focused broadcaster into the world of DC Comics and launched a massive franchise. The move also means that The CW, a joint venture between CBS TV Studios and Warner Bros. TV, will say farewell to Supernatural and Supergirl this season.”

Melissa Benoist opened up about the show’s ending in a post.
