It's the "biggest writer-producer deal in the history of TV," a source told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I'm incredibly grateful to Peter Roth, Kevin Tsujihara, Craig Hunegs, Susan Rovner & Brett Paul and everyone else here at Warner Bros. who has provided me with such a wonderful home to tell stories for many years -- and now many years to come," Berlanti said. "A lot has changed about TV since I started working in it 20 years ago, but what hasn't changed is how blessed I feel to come to work every day, where I work with the most talented, hardest-working company, executives, showrunners, actors, writers, directors, casts and crews in the business. I'm eternally grateful to all of them and to the audiences that have watched our shows. And finally, I'm thankful for the love, guidance and support I get from my husband, my family and my friends, which make moments like this one possible and all the moments in between the real reward."

Most recently, Berlanti directed the hit Love, Simon--and is also an executive producer on Riverdale, Blindspot, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Arrow, The Flash, Deception, Supergirl, God Friended Me, Trouble Finds Me, Most Likely To, Red Line, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Doom Patrol, You, All American, Constantine: City of Demons, Titans, and Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
