Arrow's Stephen Amell, The Flash's Andrew Kreisberg Dish On the Spinoff Series


With members of The CW's Arrow and The Flash production teams floating between conventions this weekend, there's plenty of talk going around about the series, the future of the CWverse (since they're currently shooting season finales) and, of course, the planned spinoff that will feature The Atom, Firestorm, Rip Hunter, Hawkgirl and more.

Both Arrow star Stephen Amell and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg were quizzed on the upcoming series, with Amell giving a few concrete details while Kreisberg stuck mostly to generalities.

"I would imagine that I will be appearing on all three shows," said Amell during a panel at Fan Expo Canada. "I would imagine that we will be sprinkling characters in. I know that there's a plan for one character who originated on Arrow and is not one of the main characters on the new spinoff to sort of hover between all three shows and that will be their job, so to speak. So you'll see a lot of interconnectivity next year."

Technically, of course, he'll be appearing in at least four series, since he and The Flash star Grant Gustin will both appear on the animated Vixen series for CW Seed, which is set in the same world as their live-action shows.

You can see the full video of Amell's panel below.


Noting that there are more mini-spinoffs yet to come on Arrow and The Flash this season, Kreisberg told fans at WonderCon that the spinoff series will be "like the crossovers every week."

The Flash returns on April 14 and Arrow returns on April 15, both at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
