Trivia Edit

  • According to developer and showrunner Salim Akil, the city was originally going to be named after his real life hometown--Richmond, CA--but decided against that as he didn't want people to feel bad about where they live.[1]
  • The name Freeland came from a quote by Mara Brock Akil. "One day, free the land." [2]
  • Just like in the D.C. Comics, Freeland is a city from an unknown state like all the others.
