ARROW Spinoff Series Will Officially Be Titled GREEN ARROW AND THE CANARIES

As filming gets underway on the backdoor pilot for the upcoming female-led Arrow spinoff, star Katherine McNamara has confirmed the potential new series will be titled Green Arrow and the Canaries...

Oliver Queen's (Stephen Amell) journey may be coming to an end, but it looks like the Green Arrow's story is far from over.

It was reported last month that The CW was moving forward with a female-centric Arrow spinoff that would star Katherine McNamara (Mia Smoak/Green Arrow), Katie Cassidy (Laurel Lance/Black Canary/E-2) and Juliana Harkavy (Dinah Drake/Black Canary E-1) in the lead roles, and it sounds like filming has finally commenced on the pilot. 

Both McNamara and Harkavy shared videos to mark the first day of filming with the former also confirming that the potential series would indeed be titled Green Arrow and the Canaries, a title that was initially revealed via an artwork poster released by executive producer Marc Guggenheim last week.

It should be noted, however, that The CW has only ordered a backdoor pilot for now, so it'll probably still be a while before we learn whether the network will actually order it to series for the 2020/2021 television season.

With filming now underway on the pilot, which will seemingly be the ninth episode of Arrow season eight (and penultimate episode of the series overall), it seems as though filming on the five-part "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover may be soon coming to a close as actors and crew return to their respective productions.
