The fate of "Amazon," The CW's Wonder Woman origin TV series, is up on the air.
Deadline reports that The CW has shelved the project until the 2014-2015 development development cycle, while The Hollywood Reporter cited sources who say The CW could still order "Amazon" to pilot. According to THR, network brass weren't pleased with script draft of the pilot and will take a look at it again once "Amazong" writer Allan Heinberg's revisions come in. There's a chance "Amazon," the origin story of Wonder Woman, could make it to pilot for the fall 2013-2014 season or midseason.
Vulture's Joe Adalian took to Twitter and seemed to support THR's claim:
The project was already in casting phase, as of November 2012. "Amazon" calls for a young Diana who is completely unschooled in the culture and ways of the modern world.
When news of the project first broke in September 2012, "Wonder Woman" star Lynda Carter said she was delighted to hear the character might return to TV. "Wonder Woman is a fantastic, inspirational character who should be introduced to a new generation. I wish them great luck and look forward to seeing it on air," Carter told The Huffington Post in a statement.
A request for comment from The CW about "Amazon's" fate was not immediately returned.
