I don’t know about you, but I’m still trying to come to grips with the fact that Arrow will end its impressive eight-season run in a matter of weeks. This show had a huge impact on me personally, as I’ve even gone as far to purchase a Green Arrow costume. Suffice it to say, I’m sad to see it go.
On the plus side, a spinoff, Green Arrow and the Canaries, is coming together, and will chronicle the adventures of Mia Smoak (Katherine McNamara), Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) and Dinah Lance (Juliana Harkavy) in the year 2040. In fact, we’ll get some insight into how this will pan out when the backdoor pilot airs next week in the form of Arrow‘s penultimate episode.
But in the meantime, we have a bounty of photos to sift through, each of which can be found in the gallery below. And as you can see, Mia’s Green Arrow gear is on full display, as she’s very much following in the footsteps of her father.
Here’s the official synopsis:
STAR CITY 2040 – 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. Tara Miele directed the episode written by Beth Schwartz & Marc Guggenheim & Jill Blankenship & Oscar Balderrama (#809).
Arrow airs on Tuesday nights on The CW, with “Green Arrow and the Canaries” set to debut on January 21st.
