When she's not writing, Loryn's other interests include collecting robots (Megazords, specifically), playing bass, and blasting metal.

New reports from Deadline.com tally that we’re up to five the DC series on the air, and a high-profile Batwoman pilot set for this coming season. How big can the DC footprint on the network get?

“We have five on the air but we also added a sixth night (of network programming),” the CW president Mark Pedowitz said during the network’s TCA executive session.”Shows do eventually end but we have no plans to end any of them right now. We’ll see where we come out as the season goes on.”

This past season, the CW also had plans to expand the worlds of Riverdale and Supernatural with potential new series. Neither of the spinoffs got on the network for various reasons.

Pedowitz said that the Supernatural spin-off Wayward Sisters wasn’t moving forward. Today the CW president said in response to that series’ stall “we had a certain number of spots this year, so it just didn’t get there.”

Wayward Sisters was to star the original series’ Kim Rhodes in a story about Sheriff Jody Mills (Rhodes) and a group of troubled young women, all orphaned by supernatural tragedy who, under Mills’ training, become a monster-fighting force.

Pedowitz mentioned that Supernatural is such a great franchise, he’s “concerned” that “there may not be a franchise beyond that.”

Wayward Sisters came from a quartet of Supernatural writers-producers, including showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as well as Phil Sgriccia and Robert Berens.

Starring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, Supernatural from WBTV follows the two brothers as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters and other supernatural beings.

The Sabrina the Teenage Witch offshoot of Riverdale, which had been in development at the CW, received an offer the producers, Greg Berlanti, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Warner Bros. TV, could not refuse — a two-season series pickup by Netflix. Pedowitz said today that he recognized how great that offer was and released the project back to them.

Those of us old enough to remember when the CW was the WB know that the station is no stranger to DC properties. Smallville, anyone? And with Warner Bros. long-standing relationship with DC, it’s no surprise that there’s continual bleed-over into the CW.

Are you enjoying the mass of DC shows on the CW? Would you rather see them ala Netflix like the Marvel shows? Tell Nerdbot about it in the comments!
