Gotham Knights, the CW series not the video game, has officially been ordered to pilot! That's right, DC fans! For those who've been following this project since it was a mere rumor, it seems like we're one step closer to actually having a Gotham Knights series. Very little is known about this project, other than the fact that it exists and a brief synopsis. Now, we shouldn't get too excited too quickly, just because this doesn't mean the series will happen. Gotham Knights has been ordered to pilot on The CW, but there is still a chance a series never materializes. Even worse, if they decide to go that brought we might never even see the pilot episode. There are still a few important things to remember about this potential series.
Gotham Knights was originally announced near the end of 2021, and little else is known about it. Some of the rumors are quite concerning for fans of the Arrowverse, though. It's being said that the show might not relate to any of the DC shows currently airing on The CW. That includes Batwoman, which makes sense to spin-off from. Y'know, since the show takes place in Gotham. If that really isn't the case it raises the question of its status in the CW's lineup of DC shows. Even more importantly, could we possibly be seeing a bunch of DC shows coming unconnected to the Arrowverse? Personally, I hope not since having the connected universe is one of the huge draws of this show.
Entertainment Weekly originally reported the synopsis for the series as follows.
"Bruce Wayne’s rebellious adopted son in the wake of Bruce’s murder as he’s forced to forge an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies after they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. As the city’s most wanted criminals, this renegade band of misfits must fight to clear their names. But in a Gotham with no Dark Knight to protect it, the city becomes more dangerous than it’s ever been. However, hope comes from the most unexpected of places as this team of mismatched fugitives will become its next generation of saviours, known as the Gotham Knights.”
