And now for some not-so-wonderful news: The CW is not moving forward with its previous announcement Wonder girl series.
Ugly betty scribe Dailyn Rodriguez, who wrote the initial Wonder girl scenario, announced the news in a tweet Friday: “For all those who ask, Wonder girl is not supported at the CW. I was very proud of the screenplay I wrote. I wish I could have shared the world I created, but sadly it wasn’t meant to be. Thank you for everyone’s enthusiasm. It meant a lot to me. “
Wonder girl Development of the network began in November 2020, envisioned as an hour-long drama series about DC Comics character Yara Flor, a Latina dreamer who descends from an Amazon warrior and a Brazilian river god. Taking the title of Wonder Girl, using her newfound powers to fight evil, Yara would have been the first Latina superhero to headline a DC Comics television series. (On the comic book side, Yara will still have a leading role this year: the character is expected to appear in a new Wonder girl comic book series launched in May.)
Earlier this year it was announced that Green Arrow and the Canaries, a Arrow the spin-off starring Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy, was also not going to The CW. The network’s remaining superhero series include Black Lightning (now airing its fourth and final season on Mondays at 9 / 8c), Flash (back for season 7 on March 2), Super girl (as his final season approaches), Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman, Stargirl and the next one Superman and Lois (beginning February 23; read review).
