Barrowman To Appear Across CW’s DC Shows

Following in the footsteps of a similar deal given to Wentworth Miller, actor John Barrowman has signed a new deal with The CW that will see him able to appear across the network’s shows based on DC Comics properties – “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends or Tomorrow” and “Supergirl”.

Miller signed a ‘groundbreaking contract’ earlier this year that allowed his Leonard Snart/Captain Cold character to appear across the four shows which are all set within the same universe and all executive produced by Greg Berlanti.

Barrowman, who was also Captain Jack Harkness in both “Doctor Who” and “Torchwood,” has played the character of Malcolm Merlyn in “Arrow” since the show’s first season.

Speaking of The CW’s superhero shows, the network has also announced plans to repeat the entire first season of “Supergirl” starting August 1st with two back-to-back episodes airing each Monday night for ten weeks right up until the second season premiere in the same timeslot on October 10th.
