‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ To Re-Air On The CW Amid Coronavirus Pandemic

The CW will re-air Crisis on Infinite Earths during April due to the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the network’s schedule.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced studios to postpone or shutdown production on multiple projects and The CW’s Arroverse shows are among the many that have been impacted by this crisis. As a result, each series will not be able to complete production or post-production on time and The CW Television Network has been forced to adjust its programming schedule.

Now, The CW has announced that it will re-air all four installments of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover that originally aired throughout December 2019 and January 2020. The re-airing will begin on April 7 with the Supergirl chapter of the crossover at 8:00 p.m. followed by Batwoman episode at 9:00 p.m.

On Wednesday, April 8, the re-airing of Crisis on Infinite Earths continues with The Flash episode at 8:00 p.m. The second run of the crossover will conclude the following day, April 9, with Arrow airing at 8:00 p.m. and Legends of Tomorrow at 9:00 p.m.

Here is the official synopsis for Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part One:
