A drama series based on the DC character Wonder Girl is being developed at the CW.
Deadline was first to report that Greg Berlanti and the network are working on a new superhero series based on the DC characters created by Joëlle Jones. The series hails from Queen of the South executive producer and co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez and Berlanti Productions.
The one-hour drama follows Yara Flor, a Latina Dreamer who was born of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God. She learns that she is Wonder Girl and with her newfound power must fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world.
News of a Wonder Girl series comes after DC Comics unveiled Flor as the next iteration of Wonder Woman in a series of upcoming comics titled Future State.
Should the project go to series, Wonder Girl will join the network’s Arrowverse, which includes The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Batwoman and the upcoming Superman & Lois.
