Earlier this year, The CW, a network known for broadcasting DC shows set in the TV universe known as Arrowverse, has ordered the pilot episode for one more DC show — Gotham Knights. Now, Variety has learned exclusively that Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara are the first two stars to start in the pilot episode, and the whole series if the network picks it up.
Fallon Smythe will star as Harper Row, while Tyler DiChiara will star as her brother, Cullen. Harper Row is known in the DC comics as Bluebird. The series is developed by Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash, who previously worked on the Batwoman TV series, which recently ended its third season. Earlier reports said that the Gotham Knights series will not be a Batwoman spin-off, and it won’t be set in the Arrowverse either due to the timeline differences.
Check the official description of the series down below:
“In the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. And as the city’s most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names. But in a Gotham with no Dark Knight to protect it, the city descends into the most dangerous it’s ever been. However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.” — Gotham Knights TV series, official synopsis
With the TV series in development, let’s not forget there’s also the Gotham Knights video game which is set to be released this year for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. The game will follow four playable characters: Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and Red Hood.
