Fans of the CWverse should be pleased to see that another animated series is currently in the works. The CWSeed platform already received an animated series in the form of Vixen, although a new series will be joining it shortly in 2017. The new series will feature the Ray as the star of Freedom Fighters: The Ray. It was also hinted that a special announcement for Vixen will be announced soon as well.
Marc Guggenheim, producer of Arrow, Vixen, The Ray, and Legends of Tomorrow, had this to say about the project.
We just finished the outline for [Freedom Fighters:] The Ray. I’ve got my writing staff assembled, we’re all working on it. I’m actually really excited about it, not just because the project’s cool, but because basically we’re going about writing it a different way than we did Vixen. It’s a bit more ambitious. It ties into an announcement that’s going to be made about Vixen pretty soon. So expect a Vixen announcement that I think is very, very cool, and we’re moving forward on The Ray.
Marc Guggenheim also had this comment to say about how his new series would affect the live-action Arrowverse.
It’s a lot of fun. One of the things we’ve done is we’ve written in, as we did with Vixen, parts for the various actors who play characters in the Arrowverse. We have a couple of ideas that, if they come to fruition, you’ll see some of these Arrowverse characters in ways you never saw them before.
No other details are confirmed at this time since it seems the series is still early in it’s development. Stay tuned for updates as soon as they become available.
