LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Return Date Set; Will Share The Monday Time Slot With SUPERGIRL In 2018

In a surprising move, The CW has announced that in 2018, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will share a time slot, meaning we'll be getting 23 consecutive weeks of original episodes of DC TV. Check it out!

Well, we have some good news and some bad news.

First up, the good news is that The CW has announced today that DC's Legends of Tomorrow will return on February 12, just four weeks after the rest of its sister shows. However, the bad news is that its return will mean a two-month hiatus for the Melissa Benoist-led Supergirl as the Legends will take over the 8 p.m. Monday night time slot for nine straight weeks until its third season finale on April 9. The Girl of Steel will then return to her original timeslot on April 16 and will run uninterrupted until its third season finale on June 18.

While this news is certainly disappointing for fans, there is a silver lining as this decision means we'll be getting twenty-three consecutive weeks of original episodes from Greg Berlanti's DC TV universe.
