According to showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez, Wonder Girl is not getting picked up at The CW.
In a recent tweet, Rodriguez states the following:
Wonder Girl is not getting picked up at the CW. I was very proud of the script I wrote. Wish I could’ve shared the world I created, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be.
It is worth noting that Rodriguez specifically stated the series is not getting picked up at The CW. This implies that the network might be shopping the series around to other networks and streaming services. This isn’t new for The CW, as they have shopped failed projects around before. Netflix and HBO Max are generally approached in cases like these. You can view the original tweet below:
So some sad news. For all of those asking, Wonder Girl is not getting picked up at the CW. I was very proud of the script I wrote. Wish I could’ve shared the world I created, but unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be. Thanks for everyone’s enthusiasm. It meant a lot to me.

Written by Rodriguez, Wonder Girl was supposed to center on Yara Flor, a Latina Dreamer who was born of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God. As Yara learns that she is Wonder Girl, she uses her newfound power to fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world. The series would tell the backstory/origin story of the DC Comics character of Yara Flor, who was recently revealed as a new Wonder Woman. In addition to the Future State Wonder Woman with adult Yara Flor as Wonder Woman, DC is concurrently publishing the Wonder Girl comic series written and drawn by Joëlle Jones. The CW series was set to focus on a younger version of Yara Flor. Dailyn Rodriguez was set to be the showrunner of the series, with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and David Madden executive producing.
