The CW series Gotham Knights have announced three lead roles, including the main character formed by Bruce Wayne’s adopted son. Oscar Morgan, Olivia Rose Keegan, and Navia Robinson will star in the drama from Batwoman writers Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux, and Natalie Abrams. The three actors join the previously announced Fallon Smythe and Tyler DiChiara. Gotham Knights are based on DC Comics characters created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger.
This isn’t a Batwoman spinoff and the upcoming Warner Bros. It’s not about the release of games either. The potential series is set in a Gotham City after Bruce Wayne’s murder. A secret alliance is formed when Rebel, his adopted son, is accused of murdering the children of Batman’s enemies. With Gotham more dangerous than ever before, the band of fugitives could be the city’s next saviors.
Morgan (Masters of the Air) will play Turner Hayes, whom Bruce Wayne adopts following the murder of Turner’s biological parents. Resilient and determined to live up to his stepfather’s name, Turner has never felt comfortable in Bruce’s world of wealth and privilege. Keegan (Days of Our Lives, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series) stars as Duela, the unpredictable daughter of Gotham’s most dangerous man. Born in Arkham Asylum and, above all, a survivor, Duela is also a ruthless warrior and a skilled thief. Robinson (Raven’s Home) will play Carrie Kelley, an idealistic teenager who succeeds in becoming Batman’s possible sidekick.
Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions produce Gotham Knights. Fiveash and Stoteraux will work with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden as executive producers. Danny Cannon will direct and run the pilot episode. Abrams will be a co-executive producer. There is no premiere date for the series yet.
