Arrowverse architect Greg Berlanti cements his future with Warner Bros Television Group as he signs a new deal.
Deadline reports that Greg Berlanti has signed a deal for Berlanti Productions to work exclusively with Warner Bros Television Group until 2027.
Berlanti is well known for building the Arrowverse. He produced many DC shows for the CW under his belt and got multiple seasons and spin-offs which started with Arrow. Not only that but he also succeeded in other shows like Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
Even though most of those shows have ended, fans have fond memories of his universes.
The producer still has quite an impressive lineup of work that keeps on going. Specifically, he still has DC’s Titans and Doom Patrol. Furthermore, he still has a lot up his sleeve with Dead Boy Detectives and Green Lantern.
Greg Berlanti Renews Deal With Warner Bros Television Group
Because of his incredible background in making high-quality shows, there was even a time when WBD was keen for him to take control of DC Films. This was when WBD CEO David Zaslav was looking for someone to head the DC which eventually landed James Gunn and Peter Safran. There is no denying that Berlanti knows what he’s doing when he puts his touch on TV shows.
Zaslav shared his thoughts about Berlanti:
Greg is a huge talent, and the impact of his prolific and powerful storytelling on Warner Bros. and audiences, and on our culture, is just ‘wow.’ He began his career with us, and we are incredibly fortunate that he will continue to build and grow our TV studio into the future.
Warner Bros Television Group Chairman and CEO Channing Dungey said:
We’re beyond thrilled to continue our partnership with one of the most accomplished, celebrated, and compelling storytellers in the industry. Greg is a visionary, a pioneer, and a leader, but more than that, he’s a treasured member of the Warner Bros. family. Collaborating with Greg is a tremendous privilege, and we can’t wait to see what stories he and his team will bring to life in the coming years.
When Warner Bros Discovery was restructuring many questioned what would happen with the shows under Berlanti. Some of the fears did come true with several Arrowverse shows getting cancelled including Supergirl. And now, The Flash is in its final season. Many wondered if his other shows might have the same fate.
Now with the WBC CFO Gunnar Wiedenfels saying that the worst is over. We reported this yesterday as WBD is done purging shows and movies. WBD is now focused on rebuilding itself. It gives us fans assurance that several of Berlanti’s remaining projects are safe. This includes DC’s Titans, Doom Patrol and its other spin-offs.

Greg Berlanti said:
Every day I wake up grateful I get to tell stories for a living with so many talented people that I love. With this deal, I’ll be lucky enough to be going into my third decade of making TV and calling Warner Bros. my home.
The TV business has changed and Warner Bros. has changed, too, but I’m as grateful as ever to be making television and working with a passionate, brilliant, and kind leader like Channing Dungey and alongside a wise and tremendous old friend like Brett Paul.
In my time getting to know David Zaslav, he is the most rare of Hollywood leaders: honest, loyal, and visionary about the kind of thriving Warner Bros. he wants to build for the future, where storytellers like myself can have a home to tell stories that excite and move audiences all over the world, for years to come.
With Berlanti Productions set for another four years under Warner Bros. This basically assures us that most of his shows will continue, at least for a while. But we do wonder what new shows we will see. As he’s heading DC’s Green Lantern, will we see more collaboration with DC Studios and Berlanti?
It would be great to see a more unified universe for DC eventually like what Marvel is doing now with their own TV and movies.
What do you think of Berlanti adding another four years with Warner Bros Television Group? Do you think his talents would be better at another company? Or is he doing fine where he is?
