According to Deadline, following the departures of executive producer Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) and co-creator Travis Beacham, the fantasy noir series starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne will be led under the creative direction of Erik Oleson – who ran the final season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix.
Oleson previously signed a two-year overall deal with Amazon, while showrunner Guggenheim moved on so he could focus on the upcoming Arrowverse “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event.
