Legends of Tomorrow has had a fairly strong place in The CW’s primetime slate on Tuesday nights following The Flash, which is mostly the network’s biggest ratings winner. The present will transfer from its post-Flash slot for a time in 2018, nevertheless, and the transfer means big changes to The CW’s superhero lineup. As a result of new superhero collection Black Lightning will take over the 9 p.m. Tuesday slot, Legends will transfer to Mondays at eight p.m. into the slot often held by Supergirl. Whereas the tweaks to the lineup are clearly excellent news for these of us who’ve been ready to see Black Lightning, they’re unlucky for followers of Supergirl.
Supergirl shall be off the air for 9 weeks within the first half 2018, with Legends of Tomorrow in its common time slot and no room elsewhere within the lineup due to Black Lightning. Followers of the Woman of Metal’s adventures in Nationwide Metropolis should go greater than two months with none new episodes in a break that can come proper in the midst of Season three and shortly after the winter hiatus. Kara and Co. shall be again briefly after winter hiatus, with new episodes from January 15 by means of February 5. At that time, Legends switches to Mondays, Black Lightning involves Tuesdays, and Supergirl takes a break.
The excellent news is that Supergirl hasn’t gotten its episode order lower simply to finish similtaneously the opposite superhero exhibits presumably will in Might. Viewers can anticipate to see Legends of Tomorrow on Monday by means of April 9, at which level the remainder of Supergirl Season three will start to air. THR reviews that the remainder of Season three will air by means of June 18. Supergirl will nonetheless get a full season; we’ll simply have to attend a bit of longer for it.
Curiously, the schedule switcheroo means adjustments to The CW’s superhero universe that transcend which exhibits air on sure days of the week. For the primary half of the 2017-2018 TV season, The CW made positive to maintain the 4 superhero exhibits on monitor with one another in order that the timelines would match for the big “Crisis on Earth-X” crossover. Smaller crossovers — resembling Felicity’s visit to The Flash — have been potential as a result of the timelines matched. Now, crossovers between the opposite three exhibits and Supergirl virtually actually cannot make sense. We might even see characters from Arrow, The Flash, and Legends interacting; the parents from Supergirl will in all probability be staying on Earth-38.
The episodes of Supergirl that air previous to Legends of Tomorrow taking on will introduce the Legion of Super-heroes past simply Mon-El and Saturn Girl. We’ll have to attend and see if we’ll be caught with a cliffhanger from early February to early April. You may catch the collection premiere of Black Lightning on Tuesday, January 16 at 9 p.m. ET. Black Lightning hasn’t been established as going down inside the Arrow-verse, so we in all probability will not get any crossovers with the brand new collection. Nonetheless, we’ll have to attend and see.
