Answering a question posed by a fan about the Green Arrow and the Canaries spinoff backdoor pilot which does not feature Stephen Amell, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has apparently given away confirmation that the backdoor pilot takes place in 2040.

“The #Arrow spinoff takes place in 2040. We already spoiled that Oliver is dead by that time, so his not appearing in Arrow 809 (the spinoff episode) isn’t affected by what happens in Crisis (or, for that matter, the series finale),” Guggenheim Tweeted.

Some (including us!) had speculated that Mia Smoak would stay in present day and team up with still-young Canaries Dinah and Laurel in 2020. Maybe they’re the ones who are “livin’ in the future?”

Either way, the episode will air one week after Crisis on Infinite Earths and if it does well, it will lead to a series starring Katherine McNamara, Juliana Harkavy, and Katie Cassidy. You can see Guggenheim’s Tweet below.
