After years of teases and Easter Eggs, The CW’s hit Arrowverse shows will finally be involved in DC Comics’ iconic comic book story, Crisis On Infinite Earths. Following “Elseworlds, Part 3”, an announcement was officially made that Fall 2019 will see this crossover come to life on The CW.
The Crisis On Infinite Earths storyline has been specifically teased throughout much of The Flash through its 5-season run so far. Last month, showrunner Todd Helbing and Grant Gustin both teased that there were current plans to eventually bring that story to life, but now we have official confirmation that it will be airing sometime next Fall.
Upon the announcement of Crisis On Infinite Earths, Stephem Amell shared the official logo for the next crossover in excitement for what’s to come:

Given the scale of Crisis On Infinite Earths, it is likely that all four series: Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will all be involved. This differs from Elseworlds given that Legends of Tomorrow was notably absent from that event.
