Two big announcements regarding Vixen came out of Sunday’s CW panels at the Television Critics Association.

First, the animated series produced by CW Seed is being renewed for a second season.

Second, Megalyn Echikunwoke, the actress who voices Vixen (Mari McCabe), will appear as Vixen in an episode of Arrow‘s current season.

Mark Pedowitz, president of The CW, also tossed out the possibility of Vixen getting its own live action series or having the character join the cast of Legends of Tomorrow. He said, “Vixen, which is the animated piece, is a superhero of diversity and color. Hopefully that character can spin itself out — if not, join the Legends.”
