The CW Gotham Knights series has added three more characters to its lineup including Carrie Kelley and Duela Dent.
The CW announced on Wednesday that it has added three more actors to the cast of Gotham Knights. Oscar Morgan (Masters of the Air), will be playing Bruce Wayne’s adoptive son, Turner Hayes. Bruce adopted him after his biological parents were killed. He aims to clear Bruce’s name, but he has never been comfortable with the wealth that came with the family.
Olivia Rose Keegan (Days of Our Lives, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series) will be playing the unpredictable daughter of Harvey Dent, Duela. She was born in Arkham Asylum and has become a brutal fighter and a skilled thief.
Rounding out the new trio will be Navia Robinson (Raven’s Home) as Carrie Kelley. She’s an idealistic teenager who talked her way into being Batman’s sidekick.
They will be joining the older cast Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara as Harper and Cullen Row.
First rumored in Dec. 2021, the new series will hail from Batwoman writers James Stoteraux, Natalie Abrams, and Chad Fiveash. Despite a video game currently in development by the same name, it will apparently have no connection to this new series. It will also not be connected with Batwoman despite the writers moving over from that series.
Here is the logline for the upcoming TV 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.”
Fiveash and Stoteraux are set to executive produce with Berlanti Productions’ Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden. Abrams will be a co-exec producer.
As with all pilots, this does not guarantee the project will move to series. If it does, it would be a possible pickup for the 2022/2023 TV season.
