Our Favorite DC Superheroes “Suit Up” for a New Season on The CW

It’s a new year, and that means new TV! All of our favorite shows are coming back from their winter breaks, and that includes all The CW’s “Super-verse” shows! What? “Arrowverse” is so three years ago.

Above, you’ll see The CW’s latest trailer for the upcoming adventures of the heroes from Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow. I’ve gotta say, I love how perpetually perturbed Oliver is by Kara and Barry. It’s like, he just can’t handle that much goofiness at once.

Below are the synopses of the shows’ first episodes this season, as well as their premiere dates. Legends of Tomorrow isn’t included, because its time slot moved to accommodate Black Lightning‘s premiere. It will then take over Supergirl‘s spot on Mondays starting February 12th, when it will alternate with Supergirl in the following schedule:


8:00-9:00 PM Supergirl (New Episodes)


8:00-9:00 PM DC’S Legends of Tomorrow (New Episodes)


8:00-9:00 PM Supergirl (New Episodes)
