Greg Berlanti is developing a Wonder Girl series at The CW.
The CW is officially expanding their superhero universe. Deadline is reporting that Greg Berlanti is developing a Wonder Girl series at The CW with Dailyn Rodriguez at the helm. In the comics Wonder Girl is Wonder Woman’s sidekick, but the series will feature a different take on the character.
Wonder Girl will tell the origin of Yara Flor. Flor is a Latina Dreamer that was born an Amazonian warrior and Brazilian River God. In the comics, the character is pretty new and will take up the mantle of Wonder Woman in the upcoming comic Future State: Wonder Woman, making her the first Latina version of the character.
Wonder Girl looks to join an already packed roster of superhero series like The Flash, Black Lightning, Batwoman, Legends of Tomorrow, Superman and Lois and Supergirl.

The Arrowverse is set to return next year on The CW. Here is the official synopsis for The Flash season seven:
Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with superspeed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash. After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton).
With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), Ralph Dibny (Hartley Sawyer), and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, and Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton.
The Flash will return on The CW in 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming season of The Flash and be sure to subscribeto Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original content.
