A short lived spin-off of Highlander: The Series.


The original plans for what later became Highlander: The Raven led to a series of episodes focusing on different female Immortal characters during the parent series's sixth and final season. The producers were determined on a female lead, despite a fan voiced hope for a Methos and Joe spinoff. Five female immortals, however, were given a try out, with the powers that be reasoning the character who caught fan imagination the most would go on to headline the new show.

The candidates were the 500 year old Reagan Cole, the 700 year old Katya, the 1900 year old Alex Raven, or the 2300 year old Katherine, or the 2400 year old Kyra. According to the Watcher's Guidebook, and several behind-the-scenes interviews, none of the new characters were well-received, so the spin-off ultimately went to an existing character; Amanda, as played by Elizabeth Gracen.


The series follows the post Highlander: The Series exploits of Amanda and former police officer Nick Wolfe. Highlander: The Raven lasted only one season. The lack of chemistry between the leads, low ratings, and a change in the marketing of syndicated shows all contributed to its failure.
