Grant Gustin’s The Flash and the rest of The CW’s Arrowverse shows won’t return until 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
During a scheduling call, The CW Chairman and CEO Mark Pedowitz announced that the network’s Arrowverse shows won’t be back until January 2021. The CW’s scripted originals typically premiere their new seasons in October but the industry-wide production shutdown forced the network to delay their return.
Grant Gustin’s The Flash will be airing on Tuesday nights, followed by Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Superman & Lois. Ruby Rose’s Batwoman will remain on its Sunday night slot, with the Cress Williams starrer Black Lightining dropping new episodes on Mondays.
Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow are expected to return for their sixth seasons in midseason 2021. Supergirl will resume production once Arrowverse star Melissa Benoist returns from maternity leave.
In the meantime, The CW will have to rely on some of its acquired series such as Swamp Thing, a 10-episode drama that premiered on the DC Universe streaming service but was cancelled after airing its first episode. The CW’s fall line-up also includes the psychological thriller series Tell Me a Story.
The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon / Vibe, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, Jesse L. Martin as Joe West, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton, and Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny / Elongated Man.
