Since the CW’s business model has changed under its new ownership, there have been shows that have been affected by it. To everyone’s surprise, CW has put a hiatus on the sequel to Gotham Knights. The series was expected to make a return; however, the poor reviews received by the viewers have coaxed the channel to cancel it.

This isn’t the first show that has been canceled by the CW. Previously, the lead protagonist of the show, Misha Collins, addressed the future of the show, which indeed seemed positive from his side. Alas! There would be no sequel, as per the network’s decision.

The 12th episode of the show, City of Owls, is reportedly set to release on June 20. Earlier, the network’s Entertainment President Brad Schwartz said, referring to Superman & Lois, All American: Homecoming, and Gotham Knight, 

“We love all those shows, and they all do very well for us in different ways.”

It was revealed earlier that since the arrival of the new co-heads of DC Studios’ James Gunn and Peter Safran, things have drastically changed. The new heads have decided to take complete control over any forthcoming adaptation of the DC Heroes movie.

Why was Gotham Knights canceled?

The reason behind the cancellation of Gotham Knight is primarily the negative reviews it has received from the audience. According to the previous revelation, ever since James Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC, they made certain adjustments by adopting the strategy of choosing filmmakers to carry forward independent projects.

Both Gunn and Safran have informed us before that they will be very selective while approving projects, which means that the CW is going to have a tough time keeping up with those TV shows that fail to retain viewership, or it may end up with the same fate as Gotham Knight.

Gotham Knight’s first season is currently streaming on The CW.
