Television is a good medium to explore superhero stories and at Warner they know it. This is why they are already preparing a new series located in Gotham City that will be called Gotham Knights, just like the video game that Warner Bros. Montreal will release this year.
According to information from Deadline, Warner gave the green light for The CW to produce a pilot for Gotham Knights. It will be a new series made by Chad Fiveach and James Stoteraux, executive producers of Batwoman and Natalie Abrams, executive story editor of that series.
In case you missed it: Gotham Knights will tell a new and original story
According to the project description, Gotham Knights will follow the story of Bruce Wayne’s “rebellious son” who, following the murder of his father, forms an alliance with the sons of Batman’s enemies after they are accused of murdering him. Criminals try to clear his name, while Gotham becomes incredibly dangerous without its ultimate protector. However, from the group of young people are born a new generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.

As you can see, it is a different plot from the video game, which confirms that it will not be directly based on it. However, if there is a very important similarity, it is that in both cases it is a new group of heroes that goes out to protect Gotham City.
At the moment there are no more details about this production. In fact, it is not even confirmed that the series will be produced since it depends on the success of its pilot chapter. We will be pending and will inform you when we know more.
