The series was cancelled in January 2003, with 11 episodes aired. The producers were, however, allowed to film the final two episodes of their 13-episode commitment, and these episodes aired in February 2003, with the final episode retooled in order to close off the various storylines in the series, an unusual privilege for a cancelled series.
The character of Dinah was originally intended to be a revision of the comic book character Black Canary. Outcry from comic book fans contributed to the character being retooled to become the Canary's daughter instead (with the Black Canary herself making an appearance in one episode).
