With her live-action counterpart headed to Arrow soon, the Vixen animated short series has been renewed for a second season on CW Seed.

The series stars Megalyn Echikunwoke, who will also play the live-action Vixen on Arrow. The news of the series' renewal comes out of the Television Critics Association presentation by CW chief Mark Pedowitz.

CW Seed is the online, interactive component of the CW Network. They've developed a number of series there, including not only Vixen but the Veronica Mars spinoff Play It Again, Dick.

Arrow returns on January 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. It seems likely Vixen will once again air during Arrow's summer/fall hiatus.
