Tonight, the casts and producers from Arrow and The Flash appeared at PaleyFest 2015 in Hollywood, and we caught up with several of them at the carpet before the event, including Arrow/Flash Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg — a busy man who is also an EP for Supergirl which is coming up for CBS.
Kreisberg is also involved with a potential Arrow/Flash spin-off featuring characters and actors from that overall universe. Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, Wentworth Miller, and others are said to be signed on, but one name really stood out to us from that cast list – Caity Lotz, whose character “Sara” died in the Season 3 premiere of Arrow.
So, what gives there? When might we know how it is even possible for Caity – whose character is deceased – to be a part of this new ensemble? We asked Mr. Kreisberg when we might get some answers.
“I think by the Spring, you’ll know,” Kreisberg teased. “We want to keep some surprises going, but we’re really excited about that series…. just to add another leg to the tripod, and complete it. We’ll get to see some of the characters that we’ve seen and introduce a whole bunch of new characters, and show them all in a different way, and have the show really feel different. As different as Flash feels from Arrow, this new show will feel different from both of them.”
And, so we don’t have to keep saying “Arrow/Flash spinoff,” might we be finding out an actual title soon?
“I don’t know. It’s still very early in the process on that,” he said, explaining that getting the cast together was the first priority. “We had to make sure to get as much of the cast set as we could before we sat down to break this mega-series with all of these characters, rather than be do that and have people say they’re not interested,” he explained.
An Arrow/Flash spinoff premieres at some time in the future, but in the meantime, we can enjoy new episodes of Arrow and Flash on The CW this week.
