The CW May Not Be Interested in Picking Up Other Superhero Shows, But CBS Is

Over the years, The CW has accumulated an impressive number of DCTV shows: "Arrow," "The Flash," "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" and -- now -- "Supergirl." According to Polygon, CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters at the TCA press tour that the network doesn't have plans for anymore superhero shows at the moment.

"There are no real discussions about any more superhero characters," Pedowitz revealed. "We have built a universe where we get to see all of these characters interact with each other and we're proud of that. But at this time, there aren't any discussions for adding anything else to that."

"When 'Supergirl' became available, I picked it up immediately," he continued. "It is now a part of our universe thanks to 'The Flash' and the crossover from last season. It fits. It's now very much embedded in our DNA and we're proud of it."

"It probably won't hit the numbers that it was getting on CBS," he added. "But if we get six million viewers out of it, we'll be very happy. We expect it to be one of our top shows this fall."

However, CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller would be more than happy to add a superhero show to the network's line up, provided a good pitch comes along. Polygon reports that Geller said, "If we heard the right superhero pitch and we thought it was right for us, we would absolutely buy it. We haven't heard anything along those lines as of right now."

The CW's superhero lineup kicks off another season when "The Flash" returns on Tuesday, October 4 at 8 pm EST.
