Including Black Lightning and the planned Batwoman series, The CW is about to air six DCTV series in the upcoming 2018-2019 regular television season with network president Mark Pedowitz claiming there is room for more.
During a panel presentation for the Television Critics Association in Pasadena yesterday, CW President Pedowitz expressed that the network does not feel overloaded with DC Comics adaptations, including its popular Arrowverse.
"We haven't hit that saturation point," Pedowitz revealed before explaining that the network hadn't yet decided if all six series would be on the air simultaneously to prevent potential overcrowding.
Yesterday, the network had announced that all five DCTV series would be receiving early renewals for the 2018-2019 television season while Batwoman, spinning out of the events of this season's crossover event "Elseworlds," is expected to receive a full series order from the network. Principal photography for the pilot episode of the Ruby Rose-starring superhero series is expected to begin this March in Vancouver.
Ever since its debut with Arrow in 2012, The CW has added a new superhero series to its lineup almost every year with Batwoman bringing the total to an impressive six and counting.
