Warner Brothers may have yet to release the DC Extended Universe’s Birds of Prey movie, but Arrow has already been introducing different elements of the all-female team’s lore during its run on The CW. This hasn’t been lost on fans who’ve been clamoring for a Birds of Prey spinoff from the network, and as it turns out, Arrow star Katie Cassidy Rogers even decided to pitch the spinoff to The CW.

According to a report by Newsarama, Rogers actually tried to advocate for a Birds of Prey series in a meeting with the network.

"I’ve pitched it," the actress who’s played multiple versions of Black Canary or Laurel Lance admitted in her interview with the entertainment news outlet, "I think they should. It’s time for women. Come on, we’ve got this."

Though we’ve yet to see whether or not The CW decides to make a Birds of Prey spinoff series, Arrow has done a few episodes trying to feature the iconic girl group. In season 2 of the series, we get an episode called “Birds of Prey” where Black Canary, Huntress (Jessica De Gouw), and Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) become the main focus of the show.

During the last season of Arrow, we also get an episode called “Lost Canary” where we get to see Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Sara teaming up together to convince Laurel that she still has what it takes to become a hero.

Of course, we’d love to see more of the Birds of Prey. Seeing how Arrow’s given birth to spinoffs like The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, and Legends of Tomorrow, there’s a chance that we’ll get to see Birds of Prey.

Arrow’s final season begins airing on Tuesday, October 15 at 9 or 8c on The CW.
