Four of the most popular shows on TV (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow) came together to deliver three seamless episodes that were not only action packed and visually incredible, but also surprisingly touching.
Obviously, Tuesday, November 28 will be home to the final two parts, those being The Flash at 8pm and Legends of Tomorrow at 9pm. During his talk, he also mentioned that the Arrowverse crossover previous year was the most successful based on ratings and other metrics in the CW history.
CW president Mark Pedowitz agrees that Legends "had a rough first season, but they had the most fun second season anyone could have".
"We felt in this particular case we had "Flash" and "Legends" paired".
"[It's a] tight, concise way of doing it".
The good news is that we already know that the crossover will actually be all four episodes. The superhero crossover episodes led to The CW having the highest-rated week ever. The first episode of the Arrowverse crossover will premiere on Supergirl on November 27 and it will continue on a special episode of Arrow which will air on the same day. After all, they've helped each other and saved the world together countless times.
"Arrow" Season 6 is moving to Thursdays this year, but fans will also have to readjust their schedules when the November crossover event happens. We were fine with them making it separate from the Arrowverse, they have a different point a view. The crossover won't last nearly all week this time.
Details on the four-way crossover are being kept under wraps, but Pedowitz did offer one tease: "Let me just say, romance is in the air", he said, likening this big team-up to Marvel's tentpole movies. Pedowitz said there's a chance that The CW could develop a show pegged to the character of Hope Mikaelson from "The Originals".
Playing to its superpowered strengths, Deadline reports that The CW announced at TCA today that instead of last year's successful four-night crossover week, this year's event will consist of two two-hour nights.
