The CW’s ‘Vixen’ Summons October Premiere for Season 2?
The CW already has in mind a fall 2016 schedule with four DC dramas during the week, so why not make it five? CW Seed’s animated Vixen re-enters the fray with a Season 2 premiere the very same week as Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
Where previously Warner Bros. had only announced a vague fall premiere date for Vixen Season 2, the show’s Twitter account happy answered inquisitive fans looking for the exact date, now revealed as October 14.
UPDATE: CW Seed evidently deleted the tweets, keeping the date vague for now:
In effect, that would grant The CW a DC drama for every night of the week, including Supergirl Mondays, Flash Tuesdays, Arrow Wednesdays, Legends of Tomorrow Thursdays, and now Vixen Fridays.
In addition to Grant Gustin and Arrow star Stephen Amell returning, Season 2 of CW Seed’s Vixen will also feature Franz Drameh and Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer and Katie Cassidy’s Black Canary. The story will be set before the latter character’s Arrow Season 4 demise, though as we learned at Comic-Con, Katie Cassidy will be popping up all over the DC universe regardless.
Not only that, but Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 will feature Star Wars star Maisie Richardson-Sellers in the regular role of Mari McCabe’s grandmother, ahead of any possible live-action return for Megalyn E.K.
In the meantime, check out the first footage below, and stay tuned for the latest on Vixen Season 2 ahead of its October premiere.
