The CW has announced a change up for its four-part CW DC Crossover event this Fall. Instead of taking place over four nights with one show each, the ‘event’ will be done over two nights of two episodes each.
Things will kick off on Monday November 27th with “Supergirl” in its regular 8pm Monday timeslot followed by a one-off time-shifted episode of “Arrow” at 9pm (there will not be an “Arrow” in its regular Thursday timeslot that week).
The event concludes on Tuesday November 28th with “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” in their regular timeslots. Speaking ahead of the network’s TCA panel, CW President Mark Pedowitz says:
“Last year’s crossover was I believe the most successful week in CW’s history in terms of ratings. We felt in this particular case to have Flash and Legends paired, it would be better and tighter in terms of storytelling to do a two part miniseries.
We thought this was a tight concise way of doing it. We had a lot of conversations with the executive producers, the studio, our own scheduling people, our marketing people and we thought this was the tightest way to do it. Next year maybe we’ll go back to four nights.”
The plot of the crossover is still under wraps, the only tease being “romance is in the air”. It has previously been said this will be less about dealing with a major threat and more about significant, impactful emotional changes on its key characters.
