SUPERGIRL, THE FLASH, BATWOMAN & LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season Return Dates Set By The CW

SUPERGIRL, THE FLASH, BATWOMAN & LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Season Return Dates Set By The CW

After abruptly taking all of their new episodes off the programming schedule, The CW has now set return dates for the current seasons of Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow!

After a week of uncertainty, The CW has finally revealed when its most popular series, including several DC TV favorites, will resume airing their respective seasons.

The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow will both return with new episodes at their usual times on Tuesday, April 21, while Batwoman and Supergirl will return a few days later on Sunday, April 26. 

While Legends of Tomorrow had already completed work on its fifth season (and will presumably be able to air all seven remaining episodes, finishing its current season), production on The Flash season six, Supergirl season five and Batwoman season one were all halted due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. It now remains to be seen whether the cast and crew will actually be able to get back to work on completing the current seasons or if the finales will be pushed to the fall.

In Supergirl's case, the show's future status is even more uncertain as series star Melissa Benoist recently announced her first pregnancy and was expected to take extended time off this summer when the series normally begins production on a new season. To accommodate her delivery timeline, The CW was slated to begin production on Supergirl season six in just a few short weeks, in an effort to bank a few episodes before Benoist went on maternity leave.

As for the rest of their lineup, Nancy Drew will return on Wednesday, April 8, Riverdale will return Wednesday, April 15, and Katy Keene will return on Thursday, April 16.

Unfortunately, the final season of Supernatural and Legacies season two will both remain sidelined for now. Supernatural aired its final completed episode last week and, despite shooting up to episode 18, will be unable to air any further installments due to unfinished visual and sound effects. The show was filming its penultimate episode when production was halted due to the pandemic and had yet to begin work on its hotly awaited series finale. Legacies is essentially in the same boat as it had aired every completed episode and their remaining episodes also have uncompleted effects.
