The CW’s annual superhero crossover will take a different approach this year.
While it will once again include Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, it will now be a special two night event.
The team up starts on Supergirl Monday, Nov. 27 at 8 pm, then continues on a special Monday edition of Arrow. Everything then moves to The Flash Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 8 pm, before wrapping up on Legends of Tomorrow.
The CW head Mark Pedowitz told TV Line that scheduling, marketing and input from the show’s producers all led to the new plan.
“We felt that it would be better and tighter in storytelling….This was the best way to go,” said Pedowitz.
Though no plot details have been released yet, Pedowitz stressed that unlike last year, this crossover would be more inclusive and feature more action involving Supergirl.
“It’s a full, four-episode crossover,” he said.
Pedowitz did drop one cryptic hint about what fans could expect.
“Romance is in the air,” he said.
Supergirl opens its third season Monday, Oct. 9 at 8 pm on The CW.
The Flash returns with new episodes Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 8 pm on The CW. It is followed at 9 pm by the third season premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Season six of Arrow premieres Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9 pm on The CW.
