The CW is breaking ground with a new superhero series coming our way called Wonder Girl, a drama series based on the DC characters created by Joëlle Jones. Dailyn Rodriguez (Queen of the South executive producer/co-showrunner) will write and executive produce the series that “centers on Yara Flor, a Latina Dreamer who was born of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God, learns that she is Wonder Girl. With her newfound power must fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world.”
Deadline reports that the series will “tell the backstory/origin story of the DC Comics character of Yara Flor, who was recently revealed as a new Wonder Woman. Yara will make her comic book appearance this January in Future State: Wonder Woman, part of DC’s Future State event written and drawn by Jones.”
The series is looking to join the CW’s existing DC Universe, which includes Batwoman, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, the upcoming Superman and Lois, Supergirl, and Black Lightning. This is a fun addition to the CW lineup, and sounds like it could be a fun series. Let us know if you’re planning on adding it to your watchlist.
