“Green Arrow & The Canaries” Update

Though Arrow has ended, fans have been eagerly awaiting its spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries. The show, set twenty years in the future, follows Oliver Queen’s daughter Mia (Katherine McNamara) as she takes up his mantle and fights alongside Black Siren (Katie Cassidy) and Black Canary (Juliana Harkavy).

The show has yet to be picked up to series, and with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic shutting down film and television production, its future is hazy. During an interview with CBR, Cassidy had a simple answer when asked if the show had been picked up: “No!”

Arrow 8×01 Deleted Scene: Earth Two’s Tommy and Laurel flirting

TV Line has released a new deleted scene from the “Arrow” 8th season Blu-ray of Earth Two’s Tommy and Laurel in the club flirting. Some of this scene was in the 8×01 episode but the bit in the video below was cut out. To us it should have been left in. Arrow season 8 is out now on Blu-ray here in the US.

E Online: A Conversation With Arrow’s Kat McNamara, Katie Cassidy, and Juliana Harkavy

The actresses open up about their favorite Arrow episodes and how they’re dealing with quarantine.

Can you believe it’s been months since the end of Arrow?

It’s been so many months that the eighth and final season is available on DVD and Blu-ray, as of today, which you’ve got to admit is perfect for those of us with a lot of time on our hands, or at least those of us who could use a distraction from the wild state of the world. To celebrate the release of the season, which also includes deleted scenes, other special features, and a retrospective doc featuring appearances by the main cast, we sat down and had a virtual chat with leading ladies Kat McNamaraJuliana Harkavy, and Katie Cassidy that somehow hit on the past, present, and future.

That future will hopefully include a future-set spin-off series starring the three of them, about which they are feeling pretty confident, but the present is somehow the bigger question mark right now, thanks to the fact that everything—including all TV production—is now put on hold for the foreseeable future.

E! News: So how is everybody doing right now? How are you handling this wild time? 

Kat McNamara: I’m surviving. Trying to stay creative and find things to do, and stay productive, stay as busy as possible.

Katie Cassidy: Actually this isn’t that difficult to be honest, because I’m just a homebody.

Juliana Harkavy: Same.

Katie: But it’s really interesting because I feel like I’ve gotten more in touch with my creative side. I also feel like my own contractor, like, hmm, I don’t like this wall. Google how to take down a wall. I’ve been painting cupboards and building things.

Juliana: Outside of checking on everybody’s safety and missing friends, it’s been really peaceful. I’ve been gardening a lot, and just thinking about how to make life a little bit more sustainable on our own without needing to go out, so it’s been good.

Arrow’s Katie Cassidy Candidly Reflects on Final Season’s Highs and Lows, Teases Laurel Secrets to Be Revealed

As Katie Cassidy awaits word on whether Green Arrow and the Canaries will suit up for The CW, she has an abundance of memories from Arrow’s farewell run to look back on — and with only a few regrets.

With Arrow: The Eighth and Final Season set to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, April 28, TV Line seized the opportunity to catch up with the original cast member and revisit Season 8’s highs and lows, including her directorial debut and loads of déjà vu. Cassidy also opens up about how the original Laurel’s tragic Season 4 death helped shape the woman she is today.

TVLINE | Ever since Black Siren started spending time in our Star City, the fans were clamoring for some sort of redemption arc. What was important to you about the two-season journey that followed for the character?
Just that her story, in terms of her character, be told and looked at in a way as though it were a separate identity, starting as her doppelgänger. Playing Black Siren, I wanted her to get a sense of depth. I wanted it to feel like she lived a different life, and that actually came down to the writers and myself doing the character backstory, trying to make her as complex and whole as possible. I wanted to have a chance to tell her story of where she came from — and I think we’re still exploring that. That’s what’s cool about this potential spin-off, Green Arrow and the Canaries; we still don’t know the story of how Black Siren, on Earth-Two as her redeemed self, learned what it’s like to be a hero. What has she gone through as we pick up with this pilot in 2040? There is still a lot of story to be told.
