Remember back in December, around the time of the Crisis on Earth-X crossover series, that we met a new superhero in the Arrowverse called The Ray? The character was played by Russell Tovey, and even though he was fighting Nazis on Earth-X with the resistance and his boyfriend Citizen Cold (Wentworth Miller), he was actually from Earth-1. And after the crossover, there was an animated series called Freedom Fighters: The Ray that debuted on CW Seed in six segments that started telling us the story about how Ray Terrill got his powers and ended up on the alternate Earth… but ended abruptly with Ray being hit with a tranquilizer and taken by mysterious person(s). Well, the second season of that series is going to be debuting at San Diego Comic-Con next month and the return to air on CW Seed.
Freedom Fighters: The Ray: All his life, Ray Terrill has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying superhero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this superhero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a superhero – THE RAY. However, Ray quickly learns being a Super Hero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it! Based on the DC characters, the animated series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio. New episodes stream on CW Seed, starting July 18.
On Wednesday, July 18th in Ballroom 20, WBTV is hosting a screening night from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. which will air the pilot of their new series Manifest, an advanced screening of an episode of The 100, and a new episode of Freedom Fighters: The Ray. It says that new episodes will be available on CW Seed the same day.
