This Year's Arrowverse Crossover Will 'Go Even More Personal'

Pedowitz didn't reveal the premise of the crossover at the event, but he hinted that "romance is in the air" for the episodes. "Arrow" will move out of its regular Thursday home to 9 p.m. Monday on November 27, following "Supergirl".

We'll know if they've succeeded in this goal when the crossover finishes on November 28.

At the Television Critics Association on Wednesday, the CW said that the heroes of DCTV would crossover for two nights this fall.

Arrow will then be passed the baton later that night on Monday, November 27th.

CW President Mark Pedowitz explained their decision to have a special episode of Arrow on Monday saying that they already paired up The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow on Tuesday. The Flash: Season 4 will begin airing on The CW on October 10, 2017 at 8 pm.


The dates for The CW's 2017 crossover event between Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow have been announced. "Next year, we may go back to four nights". Indeed, despite the 2016 crossover's overall uptick, a good portion of the audience did not stick around for the conclusion; something The CW does not wish to repeat.

The crossover will instead be a two-night event.

"[It's a] tight, concise way of doing it".

The CW pulled the same four-series event stunt past year, though it spread the shows out across four nights. "I'm looking forward to where Oliver goes and where that character arc now that, spoiler alert, potentially one of the people survive on the island, become a father, and recognize that he is the Green Arrow".

Last year, The CW presented a SUPERGIRL/FLASH two-night episode featuring Darren Criss as well as original music from LA LA LAND composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. The superhero crossover episodes led to The CW having the highest-rated week ever. However, it's still early enough for plans to change. Supergirl is based on the characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and appearing in DC Comics, by special arrangement with the Jerry Siegel Family.
