Gotham Knights, the name only says it all. It is an upcoming American superhero television series created by James Stoteraux, Natalie Abrams, and Chad Fiveash for The CW. Gotham Knights will be written by Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux, and Natalie Abrams. Fiveash and Stoteraux have worked in the world of DC heroism before, serving as executive producers for the CW Bat Woman series.
The sources reveal that the director of the infamous TV series will be Danny Cannon, and along with this another important news is that the show enters production in the next few weeks. They have also worked together on other popular shows like The Vampire Diaries and Gotham. It centers on members of the Batman family, and other DC Comics supporting characters and the Gotham Knights TV show release date is December 1, 2022. The executive producers of the TV series were also revealed to be Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, and David Madden through Berlanti Productions.
As the name implies, the show will be based on a team of Gotham-based heroes. Interestingly, this draws a parallel with the recently canceled Bat Woman, which focused on the titular hero in the wake of Batman’s disappearance. Though Gotham Knights are still relatively early on in its production, there is much that’s already known about the series. In the comics, the Gotham Knights are a team made up of Batman’s allies. A stricter and more militant incarnation of the Batman Family, the Gotham Knights has included the likes of Batman, Batwing, Bat Woman, Red Robin, Azrael, Cassandra Cain, and Stephanie Brown. The Gotham Knights also once included traditional Batman villain Clay-face.
