JUSTICE U Still Moving Forward Despite Arrowverse's End And The CW President's Recent Departure

It's been a while since we've heard anything about David Ramsey's plans for Justice U, but the actor now claims that the series is still moving forward at The CW despite the Arrowverse's impending end.

Earlier this year, we learned that Arrow star David Ramsey is developing Justice U for The CW. The actor, who played John Diggle in a number of DC Comics TV shows, was set to star in the series and direct the pilot, but a lot has changed at the network since then. 

Warner Bros. Discovery has shifted away from the Arrowverse in recent months, cancelling Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow before The Flash wraps up with its ninth and final season. Superman & Lois is still on the air, of course, though that takes place in its own world (hence why Ramsey recently showed up as a different version of Diggle). 

Earlier this week, The CW lost its President, Mark Pedowitz, the executive who oversaw the rapid expansion of this corner of the DC Extended Universe. That comes in the midst of major changes at the network thanks to new owners Nexstar. 

Does all that spell doom for Justice U?

Talking to TV Line, Ramsey said, "We’re on the second draft of a script, and we just closed the deal on a writer. I’m not sure I can say her name, so I won’t, but we’re very close to submitting our second draft. It’s still in development, and we’re moving forward."

That sounds promising, though it's clear this series is still a very long way off from becoming a reality. They're only at the writing stage and a pilot hasn't been greenlit, so we wouldn't bank on Justice U moving forward (Gotham Knights, remember, also won't take place in the Arrowverse, another sign The CW is looking for a fresh start). 

In Justice U, years after years of fighting alongside masked heroes, Diggle embarks on a new mission to recruit five young metahumans to live undercover as freshmen at a prestigious university. There he will oversee their education and train them to become the heroes of tomorrow.

Do you want to see Justice U become a reality?
