The CW currently has three DC related shows on their network: Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. According to the LA Times, the CW’s president, Mark Pedowitz, believes that’s enough for them. In the network’s TCA presentation, he said, “There is no intention, at this point, to spin anything else off.”
For the most part, the DC shows have been wildly popular and are generally regarded as successes for the network. But given the fact that those three shows would make up 30% of their primetime programming, you can see why there’s reluctance to create more DC-based shows. The network is trying to branch out and expand into different properties; look no further than their, uh… series adaptation of The Notebook.
This isn’t to say that they’re not aware of how popular these shows are and how important they are to the network. Just a few days ago, CBS president Nina Tassler said Supergirl won’t be crossing over into Arrow or The Flash. Pedowitz, however, is a little more open to the idea. He said, “I leave that to [executive producer] Greg Berlanti if they can make it work. I’m open to crossovers.”
Well. At least that’s one yes.
