With Arrow currently airing its final season on The CW, attention has been drawn to what show will fill the void once the pioneer show of the Arrowverse is no more. Well the answer seems to be in the form of a new spin-off from the series called Green Arrow and the Canaries.
Pitched as a spin-off focusing on the storyline of the flash-forward plot line from Season 7 which has continued into Season 8, the show will follow Katherine McNamara’s Mia Smoak as she takes on the mantle of the Green Arrow from her father as she teams up with the two current Black Canaries, Katie Cassidy-Rogers’ Laurel Lance of Earth-2 and Juliana Harkavy’s Dinah Drake.
While no further details have been revealed about the upcoming spin-off, including if other characters from the flash-forward plot including older versions of Zoe Ramirez, William Clayton and Connor Hawke will appear, Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim made the official announcement for the new spin-off by revealing the first promotional poster styled as a graphic novel by artists Emanuela Lupacchino, Dave McCaig, and Brett Breeding depicting the three heroines.
Arrow is currently leading up to the cataclysmic crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths which is where Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen is rumoured to meet his end alongside fellow superhero The Flash portrayed by Grant Gustin.
Arrow began in 2012 and has since spawned various spin-offs and related shows that are all connected to make up the fan-dubbed Arrowverse better known as the DC TV Universe or The CW DC Universe.
Crisis on Infinite Earths looks set to combine the majority of the wider DC TV Universe from across the years when it begins in December 2019.No word has been given as to when Green Arrow and the Canaries will premiere however it is likely to be in the Fall 2020 run of shows.
