At today’s TCA, CW announced that the first night of this season’s WBTV/DC superhero crossover will be Monday, Nov. 27 when Supergirl will be paired with Arrow. That day reps a one time move to Monday for the special occasion.
The crossover concludes Nov. 28 with The Flash in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Commenting on the crossovers going from four nights last season to two this fall, CW president Mark Pedowitz said, “Last year’s (crossover) was the most successful week in CW history in terms of ratings and everything. We felt in this particular case we had Flash on Legends paired, so it was better to make it two two-hour movies – a miniseries – we thought this was the best way to go. We had a lot of conversations with producers and marketing people. Next year, we might go back to four nights.”
Last March, Supergirl starred on the musical “Duet” episode of The Flash, which featured the song “Runnin’ Home to You” from La La Land Oscar-winning and Dear Evan Hansen Tony-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Both Supergirl and Flash were transported back to a 1920s mob-run nightclub.
“Supergirl really found its groove,” said Pedowitz about the series switching from CBS to CW. In regards to The Flash next season, “It’s about finding the lightness in Barry Allen that he had in the first two seasons.”
“As far as Legends, they had a rough first season, but they had the most fun second season anyone could have.”
