In the extraordinarily unlikely event that you didn’t catch Crisis on Infinite Earths, the massive and incredibly ambitious Arrowverse crossover that changed the CW’s DC superhero shows forever, when it aired in December and January, you’re about to get another chance. While the episodes of Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow that made up the core of the crossover have been available to stream on the CW Seed app since their airdates (and only just recently aired in the UK for the first time earlier this week), there hasn’t been an easy and convenient way to catch ’em all again on traditional broadcast TV.
That’s all going to change next week, though. The entire TV production schedule has been disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, which forced Arrowverse shows like The Flash, Batwoman, and Supergirl to stop filming, and even had an effect on the post-production of existing episodes, including those of Legends of Tomorrow. The result? An unplanned and longer-than-expected break between new episodes of your favorite DC TV shows. Fortunately, that hiatus will end later this month as the CW will once again roll out new episodes (and hopefully things overall will start to calm down in the world). But until then, perhaps the hopeful tone of heroes working together to save an existential threat to the multiverse will help keep you motivated…and safely indoors.
Here’s the Crisis on Infinite Earths re-run schedule, as well as the official synopses for each episode.
