"Vixen" Premieres August 25
And Other CW Seed News
The comic book universe of The CW will be expanding even further on August 25 when the animated series Vixen arrives on CW Seed. Megalyn Echikunwoke (The Following) voices the lead superhero Mari McCabe, an orphan from Africa who inherits a totem that gives her the powers of animals.
This new digital series also features several characters from the rest of The CW’s DC-verse, with Arrow’s Stephen Amell voicing his character, The Flash’s Grant Gustin voicing his, Emily Bett Rickards voices Felicity Smoak who she plays on Arrow, and Carlos Valdes gives voice to Cisco Ramon, his character on The Flash series.
And if you want a better understanding of just what CW Seed is, we could write up a boring sentence about how it’s a digital comedy channel online that includes original content as well as series from the past. Or we can give you their tagline: “It’s like The CW, only funnier,” but we’d rather use some of CW Seed’s humorous FAQ to tell the story:
Q: What is CW Seed?
A: CW Seed is The CW's digital home for comedy. We've got original shows like the Veronica Mars spin-off, Play It Again, Dick, and a little something we call Every Whose Line Episode Ever.
Q: Every Whose Line?
A: Yep. Something like 214 last time we checked.
Q: Why can't I watch your shows in Canada/outside the U.S.?
A: Lawyers and such. We're a U.S. company so we only bought the rights to show stuff in the United States.
Q: So you're not The CW?
A: No, we're the younger sibling that didn't get as much parental supervision.
All that aside, CW Seed’s original programming slate includes the Veronica Mars spin-off Play It Again, Dick, and they’ve recently added the full seasons of the 1990 television series of The Flash, as well as some other favs from television’s past including Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Almost Human and Hellcats. Oh yeah, and it’s FREE!
