A few months ago, we found out that The CW is working on a Gotham Knights TV series which eventually received a pilot order soon after. Fortunately, the network gave the project a series order recently as part of their slate in the upcoming broadcast season. Now, we finally have our first preview of the upcoming DC series.

The CW has released a first look image at Gotham Knights unveiling its logo and a preview of its young adult main characters that are standing in the street of Gotham City. You can check it below:

The network also released the official synopsis of the series:

"Batman is dead, and a powder keg has ignited Gotham City without the Dark Knight to protect it. In the wake of Bruce Wayne's murder, his adopted son Turner Hayes (Oscar Morgan) is framed for killing the Caped Crusader, along with the children of some of Batman's enemies: Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan), an unpredictable fighter and skilled thief who was born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father, Harper Row (Fallon Smythe), a streetwise and acerbic engineer who can fix anything, and her brother Cullen Row (Tyler DiChiara), a clever transgender teen who is tired of being polite and agreeable. With the charismatic and hard-charging District Attorney Harvey Dent (Misha Collins) and the GCPD hot on their trail, Turner will rely on allies including his best friend and formidable coder Stephanie Brown (Anna Lore), and unlikely Batman sidekick Carrie Kelley (Navia Robinson). But our Knights will soon learn there is a larger, more nefarious force at work within Gotham City. This team of mismatched fugitives must band together to become its next generation of saviors known as the 'Gotham Knights.'"

Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux, and Natalie Abrams co-wrote the series as well as served as executive producers alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden. Danny Cannon directed and executive produced the pilot. The series is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.

While the first look image didn't show us a lot of information about the series since it's just a promotional banner, it is still intriguing enough as it gives us an idea about the series which will seemingly focus more on the young adult perspective of Gotham City. Obviously, we will get an idea of the series more once they release the trailer.
