Warner Brothers and ViacomCBS are shopping around the idea of selling The CW. What this means for all the DCTV properties is uncertain.

Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and Naomi Officially Cancelled by the CW

After a long waiting period, the showrunner of Batwoman, Caroline Dries, has officially confirmed that the show will not be returning for a fourth season. Batwoman has been on our television screens since late 2019, with Ruby Rose initially headlining the series before being replaced by Javicia Leslie. The show has lasted three seasons, with the most recent season coming to a conclusion later this year. Unfortunately, with the CW being put up for sale by ViacomCBS and WarnerMedia, also with the reported upheaval of DC-related media for the latter, the fate of Batwoman was sealed today with the announcement that the show has been canceled.

To add some extra salt to the wound, another popular Arrowverse series has been cancelled as well in the form of Legends of Tomorrow. After seven seasons of time-traveling antics, the Waverider crew will not be returning to our television screens for an eighth season. Premiering in 2016 and having 110 episodes, the show was well-known for broadening the horizons of the Arrowverse with its ambitious storylines and its rotating cast of series regulars such as Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, and Matt Ryan. Whether or not we'll see proper conclusions to these show's respective story arcs in future crossover events or tie-in comics remains to be seen.

Not only that, but rounding out this myriad of cancellations, Ava DuVernay’s superhero drama,  Naomi, will not be back for a second season on the CW as well. The series centering around a young woman trying to discover the secrets about herself and her newfound abilities reportedly had a great deal of issues to find an audience. However, it's important to note that the production team is talking with other outlets about continuing the series potentially on streaming or higher up the dial.

However, fans of the Arrowverse should have yet to fear as the pilot for Gotham Knights is still in the works! While it’ll be set in another part of the expansive DC multiverse, the potential series will surely keep many fans content with a new Arrowverse adjacent series! It’s disheartening that Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, and Naomi have come to an end, but we still have a variety of wonderful seasons rich with imaginative storylines and well-rounded characters to last us a lifetime!
