The CW has announced premiere dates for its returning ArrowVerse shows. As reported by TV Line, Tuesday, April 21 will see the return of The Flash season 6, as well as DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 5. Meanwhile, Sunday, April 26 will see both Batwoman season 1 and Supergirl season 5 back on the air as well.
The Flash will return with a new episode titled “So Long and Goodnight” at 8 p.m. It sounds like this one is going to be jam-packed.
Here is the synopsis for “So Long and Goodnight.”
“After Black Hole hires Rag Doll (guest star Troy James) to kill Joe (Jesse L. Martin), Singh (guest star Patrick Sabongui) suggests he go into Witness Protection but Joe refuses to stop investigating Carver (guest star Eric Nenninger). While investigating Carver with Cisco (Carlos Valdes), Ralph (Hartley Sawyer) runs into Sue (guest star Natalie Dreyfuss). Iris (Candice Patton) becomes suspicious of Eva (guest star Efrat Dor). Alexandra La Roche directed the episode written by Kristen Kim & Thomas Pound.”
Legends of Tomorrow will return with a rather interesting episode, as this will feature something of a crossover with The CW’s long-running show Supernatural. Titled “Zari, Not Zari,” it sees Constantine and the gang coming across the set of the show in their travels.
Here is the synopsis for “Zari, Not Zari.”
“Sara (Caity Lotz), Constantine (Matt Ryan) and Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) find themselves in British Columbia searching for another piece of the Loom, but they run into a problem they couldn’t have foreseen. Zari (Tala Ashe) has been having trouble feeling like herself, so she goes on meditative journey at the suggestion of Behrad (guest star Shayan Sobhian). Meanwhile, Ava (Jes Macallan) volunteers to try and help Rory (Dominic Purcell) with a personal problem. Nick Zano and Olivia Swann also star. Kevin Mock directed the episode written by Morgan Faust & Tyron Carter.”
Batwoman, the newest of the ArrowVerse shows, is coming back to begin rounding out its debut season. But it’s been around just long enough that a villain will be making a return in the episode titled “A Narrow Escape.”
Here is the synopsis for “A Narrow Escape.”
“Batwoman (Ruby Rose) encounters a new challenge when an old villain resurfaces, testing the heroics of Gotham’s most stand-up citizens. Alice’s (Rachel Skarsten) limits are tested. Also starring Dougray Scott, Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang and Camrus Johnson. Paul Wesley directed the episode written by Daphne Miles.”
Lastly, we have Supergirl. The episode “Deus Lex Machina” has a lot going for it, not the least of which is that it will feature Jon Cryer back as Lex Luthor. It also serves as the directorial debut of star Melissa Benoist.
Here is the synopsis for “Deus Lex Machina.”
“Lex (guest star Jon Cryer) proceeds to lay an intricate plan to bring Lena (Katie McGrath) closer to him, defeat Leviathan’s latest attack, and pit Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and team against Leviathan.
