The CW Delays Their Wonder Woman TV Show for Next Season

Wonder Woman Comic BookWhat’s an Amazonian Princess gotta do to get some love on TVland?

I don’t know, but she’s gonna have to wait another season to even get her second shot at TV glory because trade news has the CW, the latest home for Princess Diana’s new show, being rolled over to next season instead of this coming pilot season.

The show, titled “Amazon”, was moving pretty quickly toward making its debut sometime this season, with casting for the lead already under way even with the pilot script still being written.

So what’s happened since?

Turns out, the show “needed more time”, according to CW sources, even though it’s still “a high priority” for the network, who are looking to pair up their superhero show “Arrow” with a fellow D.C. character. “Amazon” would fit the bill nicely as a weekly two-fer, even though Wonder Woman would be superpowered, while “Arrow” has always maintained a strict no-powers approach to its character and his world.

As you’ll recall, NBC was the last network to attempt a Wonder Woman show. That David E. Kelley version even shot a pilot that has yet to see the light of day, starring “Friday Night Light’s” Adrianne Palicki.

We’ll have to wait and see how far the CW’s version gets … next season.
