It’s been a while now since Arrow ended, but many fans still miss it. After all, it was Arrow that started this entire shared superhero universe we have on The CW. We thought we’d be okay since a spin-off was planned. Green Arrow And The Canaries. Unfortunately, the show that was meant to follow Oliver’s kid, Mia Smoak, played by Kat McNamara never made it to series. Kat McNamara is willing to return to the Arrowverse, though! She even says she’s not done with the role! We’d love to see the Arrow spin-off!
Could we still get Green Arrow And The Canaries down the line? That would sure be something! Unfortunately, we’re pretty doubtful. It didn’t seem like The CW had any interest in bringing the series, which is rather disappointing.
We suspect the lukewarm reception to Mia Smoak might have something to do with it. The backdoor pilot wasn’t fantastic either. All of these factors lead us to believe that Green Arrow And The Canaries won’t be getting a second chance, but anything is possible. We’d love to see it!
It’s too bad too because Mia Smoak did gain a following of seriously hardcore fans. I know that I, personally, was really excited to see a show with her running around as the new Green Arrow. If there’s any hope left at all, it’s because McNamara herself is ready to come back whenever they need her. She said so herself while speaking with ComicBook.com a while back. Most recently she talked to Collider about how grateful she is to have been a part of the Arrowverse at all.
“I was just so grateful that Stephen [Amell] and Emily [Bett Rickards], and everyone on the show and in the whole Arrow-verse welcomed me in with open arms and just made me feel so at home, including the fandom as well. “I was a bit nervous to see how they would accept Mia and what they would think because the take that we took with her was very distinct. You were either going to love it or not, and most people really took to Mia and I was so grateful for that. The one thing you’re always sure of in the entertainment industry is that eventually a job will come to a close, but the great thing about the Arrow-verse and the great thing about Mia is that the Arrow-verse still exists and Mia lives on in comic-cons and as people rewatch the show. As much as I would’ve loved to continue her story, I was just so grateful to be a part of it.”
If we’re lucky, maybe we’ll get to see Mia pop up in an Arrowverse crossover next year! In the meantime, let us know if you’d still love to see this Arrow spin-off happen?
