The CW has set dates for its next major “Arrowverse” four-way crossover. During the Television Critics Association summer press tour, The CW president Mark Pedowitz revealed that the highly-anticipated two-night event would kick off on Monday, November 27 with “Supergirl” at 8 P.M. The Girl of Steel would be paired with the Emerald Archer as “Arrow” will follow at 9 P.M., moving from Thursday to Monday just for the event.
The last two installments, meanwhile, would see the Scarlet Speedster joining forces with “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”. “The Flash” would conclude the crossover on Tuesday, November 28 at 8 P.M. and would be followed by “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” at 9 P.M. “Arrow” would not air on Thursday that week.
“Last year’s crossover was the most successful week, I believe, in CW history,” Pedowitz shared. “We felt that in this particular case we already had ‘Flash’ and ‘Legends’ paired. It would be better and tighter to do it like a two-night, two-hour mini series.”
“We thought this was a tight, concise way of doing it,” he continued. “Next year, we may go back to four nights.”
Pedowitz also revealed that this year’s crossover would not be like last year’s crossover event “Invasion!”, which only took place through “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”. He affirmed, “It’s a full, four-episode crossover.”
There’s not much known about the upcoming crossover, but Pedowitz teased that once it comes, “romance is in the air.” He went on saying, “What’s the joy of having the third ‘Avengers’? It’s the fun of having everybody get together, that’s the fun of it. You get to see a whole different thing. They’re all big episodic productions, but this will be even bigger.”
EP Greg Berlanti also confirmed that romance would play a big role, saying, “That is true.” He added, “Our way of making the show bigger this year was to go even more personal, so it’s a big life event for a few different people on the show.”
“Supergirl” season 3 premieres on Monday, October 9 at 8 P.M. “The Flash” season 4 and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” season 3 premiere on Tuesday, October 10 at 8 P.M. and 9 P.M. respectively. Meanwhile, “Arrow” moves to Thursday at 9 P.M. on October 12.
