Our first look at the potential Arrow spin-off is here.
On Monday, the CW dropped new photos from the final season’s ninth episode, “Green Arrow & the Canaries,” which will serve as backdoor pilot for a 2040-set show starring Katherine McNamara as Mia Queen/Green Arrow and Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy as the Canaries.
The most notable thing about the photos is that they introduce a brand-new character named Biance Bertinelli, played by Raigan Harris (All American, grown-ish). Obviously that last name implies a connection to Helena Bertinelli, a.k.a. the Huntress, which is definitely intriguing. Elsewhere, there’s a shot Harkavy’s Dinah Drake doing something we’ve never seen her do before: singing and playing the piano.
Here’s the official logline for the installment, which was written by Beth Schwartz, Marc Guggenheim, Jill Blankenship, and Oscar Balderrama: “It’s the year 2040 in Star City and Mia Queen (Katherine McNamara) has everything she could have ever wanted. However, when Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Dinah (Juliana Harkavy) suddenly show up in her life again, things take a shocking turn and her perfect world is upended. Laurel and Dinah are tracking a kidnapping victim with direct ties to Mia and they need her help. Knowing it will change everything, Mia can’t help but be a hero and she, Laurel and Dinah suit up once again to save the city.”

Arrow’s “Green Arrow & The Canaries” will air Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CW.
