A new Arrow spinoff that will focus on the crime-fighting team The Canaries is currently in development. The show will star Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance, and Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake.
An episode of the upcoming final season of Arrow will serve as a backdoor pilot for the potential series.
Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Beth Schwartz, Marc Guggenheim, Jill Blankenship and Oscar Balderrama will all be executive producers on the project, with Schwartz, Guggenheim, Blankenship and Balderrama co-writing the episode. Berlanti Productions will produce this project in association with Warner Bros. Television.
