Katherine McNamara Reacts to 'Green Arrow & The Canaries' Getting Passed On

Katherine McNamara is reacting to the sad news that Green Arrow and the Canaries is not moving forward.

On Friday (January 8), it was revealed that the Arrow spinoff was being passed on by The CW.

After the news was announced, Katherine took to Twitter to share her thoughts that her show has essentially been cancelled.

“Needless to say, I am heartbroken… would’ve loved to go on the journey with #MiaSmoak. Thanks to everyone for their love and support,” she shared, along with a photo.

Katherine was set to star in the series as Mia Smoak, the daughter of Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak. She was also taking over as the new Green Arrow, and fighting crime alongside Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) and Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy) as The Canaries.

The Arrow spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries has officially been canned at The CW.

Fans of the possible series have been awaiting news on whether it will be picked up for months.

Green Arrow and the Canaries aired as a backdoor pilot during Arrow‘s final season, starring Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak/Green Arrow, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance and Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake.

With the official news on the spinoff, this marks the end of Arrow. Katherine has previously said that she’s not done with Mia Smoak and would still put on the suit whenever, if asked.

Though Green Arrow and the Canaries is not moving forward, there are other DC Comics series in the works at The CW – Find out about Naomi, Wonder Girl, and Painkiller.

Stephen Amell Considered an 'Arrow' Return This Summer!

Stephen Amell Considered an 'Arrow' Return This Summer!

Stephen Amell revealed he almost tried to bring back Arrow this past summer!

During a recent podcast interview, the 39-year-old actor revealed that he proposed the idea to producer Greg Berlanti while he was in Canada.

“I phoned Greg Berlanti about [the idea]. I mean, from my perspective, it wasn’t a far fetched thing,” Stephen said. “This was in early July, there was a plan to go back to Heels in late August, but this was also during the summer surge that was happening in the States, where they hit daily highs, only to be eclipsed by the daily highs that we’re about to hit now.”

“I had just gotten to Canada, I was quarantining. I’m back in British Columbia, it feels so familiar after eight years of shooting of Arrow, and I’m also looking around at the fact that…” he continued. “Canada has seen a bit of a bump up in cases, which I think is to be expected, but I mean, the numbers relatively speaking are still so incredibly low, and were even lower at the time…”

“I’m thinking to myself, if everything goes to sh–, why don’t we just do another season of Arrow?” he said. “Because I want to work. I called Greg up and said just that. I said, ‘Look, I hope this doesn’t happen, but if everything goes to sh– and you guys can’t get actors up here, because of issues about mostly American actors crossing into Canada, and if things can’t be figured out, here’s the deal, man. I’m here, and if I have to stay here, I want to work. And if I’m gonna work, let’s just figure out a way to bring Oliver back from the dead.’”

“He goes, ‘Are you serious?’ And I go, ‘Yeah, of course I’m f–kin’ serious. Again, I hope it doesn’t happen, but I mean, can we at least put it on the radar?’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, of course. Why Not?’” Stephen added.

“I’ve always made a point of never saying never.”

If you missed it, in that same podcast, Stephen talked about his recent experience with testing positive for COVID-19.

Katherine McNamara Dishes On Being There When Stephen Amell Said Goodbye to 'Arrow'

Katherine McNamara is opening up about the final days of Arrow.

The 24-year-old actress played Mia Smoak, the daughter of Oliver and Felicity.

While we still await the news of the Green Arrow and the Canaries spinoff getting picked up, Katherine recently dished about being there when Stephen Amell wrapped on Arrow.

“You could tell how much he cared about each world we said goodbye to and each guest star and character that would come on to do their grand finale and their goodbye,” she told Buzzfeed. “And then, getting to go through the Crisis on Infinite Earths by his side for most of it. It was so special and so unique. Arrow started this whole legacy of superhero shows on The CW and getting to be there and witness what it had built and the family that it had brought together was amazing. I really felt honored.”

Katherine also said that she loved watching the Olicity scenes with Stephen and Emily Bett Rickards.

“Seeing Emily and Stephen interact is always amazing. I do feel like they’re my parents. I’m like so proud every time I watch them do a scene together. We couldn’t have done [the series finale] without her. I’m just so glad we got to have her, it was such a treat,” she added.

'Arrow' Producer Shares What Would Happen If 'Green Arrow & The Canaries' Doesn't Get Picked Up

'Arrow' Producer Shares What Would Happen If 'Green Arrow & The Canaries' Doesn't Get Picked Up

Green Arrow & The Canaries producer Marc Guggenheim is speaking out about the spinoff.

The producer recently opened up about what would happen to the possible new show and those characters if it doesn’t get picked up.

“Certainly, the backdoor pilot ended with the cliffhanger of William’s abduction. And I do think we owe answers to a lot of those moments and questions,” he told TV Line.

“My instinct would be to try to answer those questions in the form of, like, a comic book tie-in — which is not to say that it couldn’t be done on the other shows,” Marc continued. “When you’re dealing with another time period, the year 2040 in this case, the only show that could handle that or really deal with those questions is Legends [of Tomorrow]. [But that] is a tricky bit of business, since the tonal mashup between Legends and Canaries is so very different. On the other hand, you’ve got Sara, who is sort of the connective glue there….”

“I look at these things as ‘quality problems,” he added. “I love the fact that we now have a universe of shows that allows us to ask ourselves these questions and explore different things and answer questions from different shows, but we also have comic books as an outlet, as well.”

'Arrow' Creator Reveals Finale Almost Went a Different Way

'Arrow' Creator Reveals Finale Almost Went a Different Way

The Arrow series finale was originally supposed to be much different.

Creator Marc Guggenheim recently opened up about how Oliver’s death was always planned, but for the actual finale.

“I always saw the show ending with Oliver’s death, but Oliver’s death in the actual finale,” he told Fake Nerd Podcast. “Then I kind of had a little bit of a fantasy that Oliver would die and you’d end with some sort of news broadcast talking about his legacy and that would sort of become the voice over.”

“And then you would go to this rooftop in a whole other city, and on the cut a thug or some bad guy would crash into the frame, having been punched off-screen,” Marc added. “And these pair of black boots would come down right in front of him and there’d be a flutter of a scalloped cape and the voice over would say something along the lines of, ‘Oliver Queen inspired a whole new generation of vigilantes.’ The implication being, of course, that he inspired Batman. So that, of course, didn’t happen for a variety of different reasons – not the least of which is Batwoman came along – but that was my original conception.”

The Arrow finale almost could have spawned a Batman series, but they decide to hand the reigns over to Oliver’s daughter Mia for the Green Arrow & The Canaries backdoor pilot. Still no word yet if that show will be picked up to series.
