A full nearly 9 years after its release in 2012 two new promo photos from the first season photoshoot from Arrow have been released to us. The CW have been terrible with giving us the photoshoots from the season despite at my guess 100’s being taken over the 8 years of Katie and the rest of the cast. I hope we get to see more of the outtakes from the season’s one day.
Some time ago Katie did a Virtual Experiences comic Con for Speedy Comics Con Comic-con Dubai and at last I have found her panel video from the day. Katie is in the panel with Caity Lotz, Courtney Ford & randon Routh. So please enjoy!
Well let’s face it we all knew this was going to happen after over a year of nothing but it’s sill a sad day for all Laurel fans out there, here is hoping we get to see her on legends to tie up the cliff-hanger or just hang out with Sara.
EW – Green Arrow and the Canaries has flown the coop.
EW has confirmed that the CW is not moving forward with the female-fronted Arrow spin-off series. The news is hardly a surprise as it’s been a full year since the backdoor pilot aired as Arrow season 8’s penultimate episode with no word on a series order, but now it’s official.
The potential Green Arrow and the Canaries spin-off starred the all-female vigilante team of Katherine McNamara as Mia Queen/the new Green Arrow, and Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy as the Canaries. Set in 2040, the backdoor pilot written by Beth Schwartz, Marc Guggenheim, Jill Blankenship, and Oscar Balderrama saw Earth-2’s Laurel Lance (Cassidy) traveling to the crime-free Star City of the future to recruit a time-displaced Dinah Drake (Harkavy) and Mia — Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Felicity Smoak’s (Emily Bett Rickards) adult daughter — for a mission to save the city and the timeline.
Guggenheim revealed on Twitter that the decision not to move forward with Green Arrow and the Canaries was made back in early 2020, citing the pandemic as possibly “the deciding factor.”
Actually, the decision was made back during the start of the pandemic (which, I believe, was the deciding factor). The actual announcement was made today.
By the end of the backdoor pilot, many new questions were raised that unfortunately won’t be answered now that it isn’t going to series, like how Dinah of 2020 got to the future after she was last seen on a motorcycle heading to Metropolis in Arrow’s series finale, as well as who kidnapped William (Ben Lewis) and why the villain in the Deathstroke mask had a tattoo that matched the etchings on the Queen family’s h?zen.
Our interview with Katie Cassidy, she plays the character of Black Canary / Black Siren in The Hit Tv show Arrow.
See the best moments from our interviews with the stars of The CW’s Arrow, including Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen / Arrow), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak / Overwatch), David Ramsey (John Diggle / Spartan), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance / Black Canary), Juliana Harkavy (Dinah Drake / Black Canary), Rick Gonzalez (Rene Ramirez / Wild Dog), Willa Holland (Thea Queen / Speedy), and Echo Kellum (Curtis Holt / Mister Terrific).
Arrow season 8 came out last month (for the UK) on Blu-Ray and at last I have got my copy of it. This time round there was no gag reel and I’m so upset about that but we did get two features Arrow At Comic Con and the previously aired Hitting The Bullseye that I have replaced the LQ caps we had. And three Deleted Scenes one for 8×01 – starling city and two for 8×09 – green arrow & the canaries. You can view them all now in the galley, Enjoy!
With what is going on in the world right now cons are off for the time but that does not stop a Virtual Experiences from taking place, And last week Katie and her Arrow co-stars Juliana Harkavy, Ben Lewis, Katrina Law and Kelly Hu all took part in Wizard World Arrow Virtual Experiences 2020 were they did a free panel, autographs, one on one video chat, and a little video message. You can watch the panel below. and the site will be having a new look very soon.
CW Arrow actors Katie Cassidy, Juliana Harkavy, Ben Lewis, Katrina Law and Kelly Hu gave a virtual panel through Wizard World Virtual Experiences 2020 to talk about the show, the new show (Green Arrow and the Canaries), their careers and to answer fan questions.
Katie Cassidy plays Laurel Lance on Arrow, with both the Black Siren and Black Canary alter egos. She is also known for Melrose Place, A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010), Harper’s Island, Supernatural and 7th Heaven.
Juliana Harkavy is Dinah Drake and also Black Canary on Arrow, but has also had roles in The Walking Dead, Graceland, The Glades and the upcoming production The Lighthouse.
Ben Lewis plays the adult / future version of Oliver Queen’s son, William Clayton, in Arrow, but has also appeared in Chasing Life, The Handmaid’s Tale, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Zero Recognition and Designated Survivor.
Katrina Law portrayed Nyssa al Ghul in Arrow, but is also known for The Oath, Hawaii Five-0, Sacred Lies, Training Day (TV Series), Spartacus. Legend of the Seeker, Chuck and The Resistance.
Kelly Hu played China White on Arrow, but is also known for The Orville, Warehouse 13, The Scorpion King and voice acting in Phineas and Ferb, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mortal Kombat and Young Justice.
Looks like a decision has been made, now we just have to hope it’s the right one.
Digitalspy – The Arrowverse’s first show Arrow may have come to an end, but there is a spin-off called Green Arrow & the Canaries in the works. You might have seen that an Arrow episode from the final season earlier this year was essentially a backdoor pilot.
Now a few months have passed, you’d hope that there would be some progress towards bringing this spin-off to the screen, but unfortunately executive producer Marc Guggenheim isn’t able to share that much with fans.
Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy to promote Wizards: Tales of Arcadia, the TV boss said: “I know things, but it’s up to CW and Warner Bros to publicise the things I know.
“Actually, it’s a little frustrating because people are constantly tweeting at me and I would love to answer, but there are certain things I’m not allowed to talk about until the powers-that-be decide we can.”
Speaking about the state of the Arrowverse in general, Guggenheim added: “I’ve finished with Arrow, I’ve finished with ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’. It feels like the end of a chapter for me.
“So I’m not entirely sure if there’s another chapter to be had at this moment in time. At some point, I need to figure out exactly what I’m doing with the Arrowverse going forward, but I haven’t quite figured that out yet… The Arrowverse shows are still going.
“Fortunately, I don’t think we have to worry about it ending anytime soon. I think when that day comes, if I’m still involved in the shows, I’m sure [my experience ending the Tales of Arcadia trilogy] will inform that one.”
E Online!: 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 gotta admit is perfect for those of us with a whole 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 McNamara, Juliana Harkavy, and Katie Cassidy that somehow hit on the past, present, and future.
That future will hopefully include a future-set spinoff 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 forseeable 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.
Juiliana 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.

A new deleted scene from Arrow season 8 Blu-Ray was released by TV Line of Laurel and Tommy in the clue talking. We did get some of the scene in the episode but the bit cut out was a replice of what they said to each other in 1×01 and I wish they had kept it in the episode. Arrow season 8 is out now on Blu-Ray in the US but unfortunately it’s not out till the end of May over here in the UK but I will cap this and any other things Katie my be in when I can get a copy.
Even amid global health crisis, the kickass heroines of Arrow remain a bunch of straight shooters.
In advance of this week’s release of Arrow: The Eighth and Final Season and Arrow: The Complete Series (both on Blu-ray & DVD), Katie Cassidy, Katherine McNamara and Juliana Harkavy gathered on Zoom (in the video above) to talk with us about the long-running CW hit, their favorite moments, and how it feels to be one of the few shows that got to wrap before the lockdown.
“I really feel for the productions that had to stop in the middle and have that anxiety,” says Harkavy, who joined in Season 5 as Black Canary-to-be Dinah Drake. “We are so lucky.”
Noting how “we don’t even know what the industry is going to look like in a few months,” McNamara (who played Oliver and Felicity’s daughter Mia Smoak) echoed her gratitude that Arrow was able to end on its own terms. And all three shared their excitement that the backdoor pilot for a possible Green Arrow and the Canaries spinoff had already aired during the final season — particularly the delightfully unfiltered Cassidy. Over the course of eight seasons, the original cast member’s Laurel Lance went from a Star City assistant district attorney to Earth-2 meta-human villain Black Siren, while the actress added director to her resume.
Should the trio’s series get the greenlight, Cassidy is ready to get back behind the camera. “[Bleep] yeah!” she exclaims, adding that, despite the current quarantine, there are still reasons to be happy out there. “Let’s look forward to something positive.”
And until we get the official word about the future of Canaries, fans of the Arrowverse have these DVD and Blu-ray releases to look forward to. Available starting April 28, the eighth and final season set features all 10 episodes, the show’s 2019 Comic-Con Panel (moderated by yours truly!), the broadcast special Arrow: Hitting the Bullseye, and deleted scenes.
A limited edition bonus disc featuring all five episodes of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will be included exclusively on Blu-ray. The same goes for Arrow: The Complete Series, which packs all eight seasons and tons of bonus content. Both sets will also be available for digital download.
