The CW has put a lot of effort into establishing its DC superhero series, spawning what we now fondly refer to as the Arrowverse. But with Arrow coming to an end after Season 8 early next year, The CW is hard at work on trying to find a potential replacement for it in its lineup.
CW President Mark Pedowitz revealed at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Sunday that another DC property is currently being considered as the next addition to the network's superhero universe when asked about a potential Arrow spin-off following Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak's (Emily Bett Rickards) daughter, Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara).
"There's a possibility [of a next generation spin-off], but we haven't fully had the discussion about that one way or another," Pedowitz said. "Right now there's another property that we're looking at for next season."
Pedowitz wouldn't reveal what that property was, but he did confirm to a small group of reporters that the potential series would reside in the Arrowverse rather than as a stand-alone series like Black Lightning.
With The Flash, Supergirl, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, andBatwomansticking around (with no end in sight for any of them, according to Pedowitz), one has to wonder whether The CW will go the Wonder Woman route for another singular hero series, or whether another team-up series is on the agenda..
