GOTHAM KNIGHTS TV Series In The Works At The CW
The Bat-family is set to make their way to the small screen as The CW has announced that they are currently developing a Gotham Knights TV series. The series is being developed by the team behind Batwoman and it consists of writers Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash. Abrams will also serve as executive producer on the series alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden. The CW is known for its long-standing expansive Arrowverse, but reports state that the Gotham Knights series will be unrelated to the Arrowverse.
The production is behind all the Arrowverse shows that include Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, and Batwoman. Although the series is unrelated to the Arrowverse it’s also important to mention it is not a spinoff of Batwoman either and has no connection to the video game set to release from Warner Bros. Games.
Variety describes the show as followed:
In the show, in the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. And as the city’s most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names. But in a Gotham with no Dark Knight to protect it, the city descends into the most dangerous it’s ever been. However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.
That is all the information that has been shared thus far. With the DC universe slowly shrinking at The CW, it’s no surprise to see them bringing in new projects, what is interesting is that it is not related to the Arrowverse. Could this be an indication that the Arrowverse might be coming to an end or no longer expanding past its current group of heroes?
