Get ready for some big Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow updates for 2018. The CW announced today that the two shows will be splitting timeslots for 2018. Here is how it’s going down:
Supergirl will return on Monday, January 15 and air four episodes until February 12, which is when Legends of Tomorrow will be back for its midseason premiere. The time traveling DC drama will then air all the way until April 9 which will mark as the season three finale.
Then on Monday, April 16, Supergirl returns with its remaining episodes and will finish up its third season on June 18. That will be the first time any of the Arrowverse shows finishes later than May.
This move was made after Black Lightning was given Legends of Tomorrow’s old timeslot at Tuesdays at 9 PM. In addition to that, this remains consistent with what CW president Mark Pedowitz said earlier this year that the network will never air more than 4 DC shows at the time time.
“After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question. With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time travelling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm. Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.”
