The CW is currently the home to a lot of DC shows such as The Flash, Batwoman, Stargirl, and many more. But it looks like another DC show is coming as it was reported by Variety that a Gotham Knights TV series is currently in the works at The CW.

The project will hail from Batwoman writers Natalie Abrams, James Stoteraux, and Chad Fiveash. They will also serve as executive producers alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden. However, the potential series will not be a spin-off of Batwoman nor an adaptation of the upcoming video game of the same name that is set to be released next year.

The report described the logline of the project: "In the wake of Bruce Wayne’s murder, his rebellious adopted son forges an unlikely alliance with the children of Batman’s enemies when they are all framed for killing the Caped Crusader. And 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 descends into the most dangerous 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 saviors known as the Gotham Knights."

While the series will not be based on the upcoming video game, based on the logline, it is likely that it will be more inspired by the monthly comic book series that ran from 2000 to 2006 which featured characters such as Alfred Pennyworth, Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and more. However, it looks like the project will be doing its own take on the story as they didn't indicate that they will use the aforementioned characters. The series is also not expected to be connected to the Arrowverse even though they share some of the same creative team involved.
