Vixen is an animated web series that premiered on CW Seed on August 25, 2015. It is set in the same universe as both Arrow and The Flash.[1] The first season spans six parts, as a sort of origin story for Vixen.

Having always had the potential to make a live-action appearance on Arrow or The Flash[2], it was announced in December 2015 that Megalyn Echikunwoke, the voice actress of Mari McCabe, would reprise her role in the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of Arrow, "Taken", marking the character's first live-action appearance in the universe.[3]

The first season takes place circa Arrow's "The Offer".[4][5] On January 10, 2016, the series was renewed for a second season.[6]

The first and second seasons were combined to form a full length feature film, titled Vixen: The Movie and was released on May 23, 2017.[7][8] This makes it the first film set in the Arrowverse.


Originally from Africa, Mari McCabe's parents were killed by local greed, corruption, and wanton violence. But the orphaned Mari refuses to succumb to the terrors surrounding her. Inheriting her family's Tantu Totem, Mari can access the powers of animals-anything from the super-strength of a gorilla to the speed of a cheetah. As Vixen, she fights valiantly to protect the world from threats like those that claimed her family. This six-episode series debuting on CW Seed this fall, featuring the voices of Stephen Amell (Arrow), Grant Gustin (The Flash), Emily Bett Rickards (Arrow), and Carlos Valdes (The Flash). It follows Mari's path as she first learns to embrace her incredible abilities and discovers the source of the mysterious Tantu Totem's power.[9]
