The series starring Stephen Amell had invested one of the episodes of its final season in presenting this new story starring Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy.
The new Arrowverse series Green Arrow and the Canaries it will not go forward on CW. More than a year has passed since the American chain announced its intention to launch a new ‘spin-off’ set in Star City and starring women and, although one of the final episodes of Arrow to act as a pilot, the project has finally been left in the pipeline.
As you have learned and publishes TVLine, The CW has confirmed that it will not produce the series, while the potential ‘spin-off’ of The 100 still a possibility which is on the table even without having received an official green light.
Starring Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy, the pilot of Green Arrow and the Canaries scored a season high down the stretch of Arrow, only behind the four-way crossover that Arrowverso fans are so eagerly awaiting. In the pilot, set in the year 2040, we saw how Laurel Lance changed the era to recruit her partner Dinah Drake and the new Green Arrow Mia Smoak to face a dangerous threat in that timeline, one in which crime hit Star City again.
Although the story, which also wanted Laurel to avoid Mia’s future actions, convinced from the beginning, finally will have to settle for being one more episode of Arrow. Thus, some of the questions and loose ends left by the ‘showrunner’ Marc Guggenheim in order to solve them with the new fiction, will remain unanswered. At least on screen. The scriptwriter already commented in his day that, if the series did not go ahead, he would solve the unknowns in a comic.
While, the rest of the Arrowverse series continue on their way, with The Flash premiering its season 7, Supergirl entering its final delivery, Legends of Tomorrow already in its sixth installment (still undated), Black Lightning premiering its last season in February, Batwoman his second in January, and the new addition, Superman & Lois, debuting on February 23, 2021.
