DC TV show release dates: Here's the current status of all the Worlds of DC

While the DC movie universe stumbles, the TV universe goes from strength to strength and the comics giant will soon launch its own streaming service with a whole host of new shows.

That’s alongside The CW’s well-established Arrowverse which currently features five shows –with two more on the way – and The CW’s president Mark Pedowitz doesn’t expect them to end anytime soon.

“Shows do eventually end, we have no plans yet to end one or any of them,” he explained. “We’ll see where we come out as the season goes on.”

Even the most diehard DC fan could struggle to keep up with all of the shows and what’s happening with them, so we thought we’d round all of the current DC offerings and planned shows into one place because we’re nice like that.
