We are getting some answers on why the Arrow spinoff Green Arrow & The Canaries didn’t move forward at The CW.
The network’s president Mark Pedowitz opened up about what really happened with the potential series.
“Timing. We couldn’t quite figure out a model similar to Stargirl and couldn’t quite get there,” he said, via THR. “We were hoping to have it start at HBO Max and take a second run on The CW, but we couldn’t figure out how to do it and couldn’t make it all work.”
In case you forgot, Stargirl actually first premiered on the DC Comics streaming service, and would then air the next day on The CW. Since, the show was picked up for season two at The CW and the DC streaming platform eventually folded into HBO Max.
