The CW Plans 'Flash' Spin-off of 'Arrow'

Flash may be headed to The CW!

According to Deadline, the network is eyeing a series based on DC Comics’ Scarlet Speedster, which would act as a spinoff of the hit show Arrow, with co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.

“We plan to introduce a recurring character and an origin story of Dr. Barry Allen, we’ll see how it goes and hopefully it goes well,” CW president Mark Pedowitz said at TCA. “We do want to expand upon the DC universe. There are very rich characters we can use, and we thought this was a good way to do it.”

The casting process is already underway. “TV creates stars, so if we get a name, great, if we don’t get a name, they’ll become a name,” Pedowitz said.

The character will be introduced in an episode of Arrow this fall and recur into next year.
