Fans can post pics, photos and gifs from conventions and Amanda’s work and share memories using the hashtag #virtualATevent. Follow @VirtualATEvent for updates.

Sabrina Furminger, the host of the podcast YVR Screen Scene, has published a new podcast interview with Amanda. They talk about the challenges and concerns during the COVID-19-induced self-isolation, about taking care of one’s emotional health while isolating and about Amanda’s favourite things. Listen to it on the website or on Apple podcast.
This podcast interview is the second podcast interview Sabrina has done with Amanda. The first one was back in May 2019, and if you haven’t listened to that one yet, I highly recommend you do that. Also, if you haven’t read Sabrina’s interviews with Amanda on Vancourier, I highly recommend them too. The interviews by Sabrina are, in my opinion, the best and most interesting interviews with Amanda.

You might have seen articles about a Sanctuary revival with Amanda as Helen Magnus. They’re based on an article by Deadline, Amanda however replied on Twitter that the article was “inaccurate”. The article has been deleted since. Fans of the series will have to keep waiting and hope that at least some parts of the article were true but for the moment there’s nothing happening, officially.
Two weeks ago, Amanda was directing The Flash. Now she’s directing another series of the DC Universe: Batwoman. The series premiered on October 6, 2019, and airs Sundays at 8:00 pm on The CW. It has been renewed for a second season in January of this year. Filming locations are Vancouver and Chicago. Batwoman follows Kate Kane, a vigilante in Gotham City, and is set in the Arrowverse.
With this being the second series of the DC Universe Amanda is directing, fans of the comics can hope that she’ll also eventually direct Supergirl or Legends of Tomorrow. Both series are being shot in Vancouver and both have been renewed for a sixth season.
