Geoff Johns Announces His Return To Comics; New DCTV Show Coming Soon

geoff-johnsThe DC TV Universe has grown over the past couple of years, with The CW currently airing four series with Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. In addition to that, they have the DC Comics/Vertigo series iZombie which will kick off its third season in April.

Over at FOX, we have the Batman prequel series Gotham along with the DC/Vertigo series Lucifer. The next TV season might also see the arrival of Black Lightning which got a pilot production commitment back in the fall, with CW DC producer Greg Berlanti attached. SyFy announced its full cast for the Superman prequel series Krypton that currently has a pilot order.

However, it looks like more properties could be coming to the small screen. DC Films co-head and President/CCO of DC Entertainment, Geoff Johns, teased on Twitter that along with the ongoing shows, a new show is going to get announced soon.
