This Year's Big DC/CW Crossover Is A Two-Night Event

This Year's Big DC/CW Crossover Is A Two-Night Event

Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) was a part of last season's crossover, but "Supergirl" the show didn't carry much of the story.

Last year, the CW's big Arrow/Flash/Supergirl/Legends of Tomorrow crossover took over the network for four straight nights - well, more like three and a little bit - of alien-punching glory. The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow will finish up the crossover on November 28. That hasn't gone unnoticed by CW President Mark Pedowitz, who defended the character at the Television Critics Association press tour (via TV Line). "We felt in this particular case to [already] have Flash and Legends paired, it would be better and tighter in terms of storytelling to do a two-part miniseries. It would be better and tighter to do it like a two-two hours mini series". This consolidation of the crossover into a two-night event may be created to remedy the ratings disparities in last year's event, which saw an odd drop-off in its climactic chapter in Legends Of Tomorrow. They're all big episodic productions, but this will be even bigger.

Catch the premiere of the "Arrowverse" shows on The CW this fall: "Supergirl" Season 3 premieres Monday, October 9th at 8 PM, "The Flash" Season 4 on Tuesday, October 10th at 8 PM with "Legends of Tomorrow" following right after at 9 PM.

The event will begin on Monday, November 27 at 8/7c on Supergirl. However, it's unlikely that Black Lightning would join in on the crossover fun as the network is keeping the projects separate - for now. "I'm really happy with where they're heading, and they've got a great showrunning staff". And while each of these shows deserves attention in their own right, it's the very special crossover event that has the headlines for the moment.




One notable detail about the 2017 crossover is that it will likely be the first true four-way crossover event. I can't wait to see what the Arrowverse has in store for us this November. "We have no plans to develop any DC shows this season", Pedowitz said.

"Arrow" was actually moved to a special Monday night slot for this year's crossover so the episodes could run back-to-back over two days rather than stretching it out over four days as it was done this previous season.

Since "Arrow's" debut in 2012, The CW has launched an ambitious shared universe with its heroes.
