Wonder Girl is no longer going forward at the CW.
The network has passed om the superhero project being developed by Queen of the South executive producer/co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez in conjunction with Berlanti Productions, the production shingle behind all of the CW’s DC Comics-based series. The project had only reached the pilot script stage, with the network declining to move forward from their.
Rodriguez broke the news via twitter-
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.

The series would have centered on a Yara Flor, a Latina girl who discovers that she is actually the progeny of an Amazonian warrior and a Brazilian river god. The character was created by writer/artist Joëlle Jones and only made her first appearance in print just last month as part of DC Comic’s Future State event.
This marks the second DC Comics-related project that the CW has now passed on. Last month, the network passed on going forward with the Arrow spinoff, Green Arrow And The Canaries. That potential show even benefited from a good portion of Arrow spending its final season setting up characters and situations for the spinoff. They still do have two DC Comics-related projects in development – the Black Lightning spinoff Painkiller and the series Naomi from Ava DuVernay.
