During a rapid-fire year-end wrap-up on Twitter, DC president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns revealed that fans can expect yet another DC television announcement in the coming year.
The list doesn't include a number of DC TV projects that are currently on TV or in development, including Powerless, which premieres in the spring, and Black Lightning from Greg Berlanti, the producer behind Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow.
That is likely due to the 140-character restriction on Twitter. While news of many TV and movie projects tends to leak while it's still in the pipeline and not yet "official," putting company executives like Johns in an awkward public position when discussing them, Black Lightning was announced after it had already landed its pilot commitment at FOX and is likely as "official" as any show not yet on TV is likely to be.
Besides the shows listed by Johns, DC's television division is currently in production on new seasons of Preacher and iZombie while pilots or first seasons are in development for Powerless, Scalped, Krypton, and Black Lightning.
Animated series in production at DC right now include Teen Titans Go!, Justice League Action, DC Superhero Girls, and the long-delayed third season of Young Justice.
There was no indication from Johns when any announcement will be made about upcoming DC TV projects.
The CW is frequently rumored to be developing a fifth superhero show, althoguh those rumors had generally centered on the idea that each of the first four weekdays had a show and developing a "Friday show" could give them a full week's worth of DC programming. With the midseason return of Legends of Tomorrow, it will move to Tuesday nights after The Flash to make room for the Archie Comics adaptation Riverdale, which premieres later this month.
