Amanda Tapping Directing Batwoman

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.

Website Updates

Hi everyone!

So, according to our poll, what most people want to see on the website are transcripts of convention panels and a chatroom.

chat timesWell, since setting up a chat is rather simple, I set up one. I won’t moderate it at the moment, and I’ll see if it works like that. If issues with spammers arise or if I see that people don’t adhere to internet netiquette, I’ll add more rules and moderation.
I’ve also made a suggestion for regular chat meetings: Saturdays at 1:00 pm PST (Vancouver), respectively 4:00 pm EST (Toronto), 9:00 pm GMT (London), 10:00 pm CET (Paris), 8:00 am AEDT (Melbourne, Sunday morning!). I tried to choose a time that could more or less work for fans all around the world.
The chat is currently limited to 50 seats, meaning up to 50 people can be in the chat at the same time.

I then took a look at the conventions page to check which panels I could transcribe, and I noticed that I forgot to add the San Diego Comic Cons from 2008 to 2011. I guess I forgot because they’re big panels, so Amanda doesn’t get to talk that much in them… I’ve added them now, including some videos. I’ve also added links to videos of the Sanctuary panel for Calgary Con 2012.

Update February 13, 2020: Amanda confirmed on Twitter/Instagram that she’s directing The Flash.


The international Stargate tweet storm was again a success. #TimeForStargate did trend in France, Germany, Canada US, UK, and even worldwide. Amanda didn’t participate this time, but other actors like Suanne (Hathor) and Simone (Ka’lel) did.


Premiere Date for Motherland

Some of you might remember that Amanda tweeted last May about directing Motherland: Fort Salem. Well, finally, there is a release date for the premiere: Wednesday, March 18, at 9:00 PM on Freeform. Since Amanda directed the third episode, those with access to Freeform will probably get to see that episode on April 1, 2020, provided a schedule of one episode per week. Freeform is only available to people living in the United States or its territories; so far, it’s unknown how and when people in other countries will be able to watch the series.

Motherland: Fort Salem follows three witches who fight in the U.S. military. It is set in an alternate present-time America where witches ended their persecution by cutting a deal with the U.S. government to fight for their country. The trailer looks very interesting.
