Welcome to Super Season.
The first look at The CW’s full slate of superhero programming has arrived, and the DC heroes are here to fight back.
The trailer (above) sees the return of “Supergirl,” “Arrow,” “Black Lightning,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” and “The Flash” — including a shot of star Grant Gustin in his new Flash costume. “It’s a little tighter than I remember,” he jokes in the video.
Freeland’s big baddie Tobias Whale (Marvin Jones III) is back, threatening to make the city ?. We also get a glimpse of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in prison, working on his pull ups, and hear Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) inspire us to make waves.
The CW’s super line-up will kick off with the premiere of “The Flash” Season 5 on Oct. 9 at 8 p.m., followed by the Season 2 premiere of “Black Lightning” at 9 p.m. “Supergirl” Season 4 will premiere on its new night on Sunday, Oct. 14 at 8 p.m., Season 7 of “Arrow” will premiere Monday Oct. 15 at 8 p.m., and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” Season 4 will premiere on Monday, Oct. 22 at 9 p.m.
