The CW's DC TV universe is growing by one show this season with the addition of Supergirl, formerly of CBS, to their line up, however the DC TV's universe's expansion may stop there, according to CW President Mark Pedowitz.

"There are no real discussions about any more superhero characters," Pedowitz told Polygon. "We have built a universe where we get to see all of these characters interact with each other and we're proud of that. But at this time, there aren't any discussions for adding anything else to that."

This comes on the heels of CBS announcing that, despite passing Supergirl onto CW, they are still in the market for superhero projects. As for Supergirl and its presence in CW's DC Universe, Pedowitz says Supergirl is "embedded in the DNA" of their world.

"When Supergirl became available, I picked it up immediately," Pedowitz said. "It is now a part of our universe thanks to the Flash and the crossover from last season. It fits. It's now very much embedded in our DNA and we're proud of it."

However, Pedowitz is also quick to temper some expectations of Supergirl’s place in the network's slate.

"It probably won't hit the numbers that it was getting on CBS," Pedowtiz explained. "But if we get six million viewers out of it, we'll be very happy. We expect it to be one of our top shows this fall."

Supergirl season 2 premieres Monday, October 10 on CW.
