A few years before Patty Jenkins brought Wonder Woman to the big screen, The CW was planning on a prequel series entitled Amazons. The show would've been similar to the likes of Gotham and Smallville, focusing on Diana's life before she stepped into the role of Wonder Woman.
Allan Heinberg would be brought on to develop the new series, but he would soon step aside. Alon Eli Coleite would take over, but the project would eventually be shelved in 2014.
Since then many fans have wondered if Amazons would ever see the light of day - especially given how successful The CW has been in crafting the DC TV Universe over the last few years. Well, today at the Television Critics Association summer press tour fans finally got their answer.

Honestly, given the critical and commercial success of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, this shouldn't come as that big a surprise. However, if you're looking for even more Amazonian adventures, Gal Gadot will be back on the big screen as Princess Diana in Justice League on November 17th. Warner Bros. also officially announced that a Wonder Woman sequel will arrive on December 13th, 2019.
So, while we may not be getting Amazons on The CW, there's still plenty for Diana's fans to anticipate over the next few years thanks to Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe.
