As the world currently deals with the global coronavirus pandemic and many television productions shutdown along with new episodes put on hiatus. The CW is doing some moving around and shuffling of its upcoming debut slots to fill up the spring time holes in programming.
STARGIRL which was coming to both the DC Universe streaming app as well as the CW is moving back to May 19 instead of its originally planned May 12 air date. A new episode of DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will air at 9 p.m. after the premiere of “Stargirl.”
STARGIRL will take over THE FLASH Tuesday time slot until production resumes later in the year. However the show about the fastest man on the planet will finish airing the episodes that were completed before the shutdown. In turn, “Legacies” will go on hiatus after Thursday’s episode, which was the last to finish filming before the shutdown, until production resumes later in the year.
STARGIRL stars Brec Bassinger, Luke Wilson and Amy Smart. It follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past.
Season 2 of IN THE DARK is described as following Murphy (Perry Mattfeld), a messy twenty-something who struggles on a daily basis to balance her random hookups, her hangovers, and her drug front — all while being blind.
News was just released the CW has gone forward with early renewal to its current scripted shows. This includes the Arrowverse which will continue even though its flagship show ARROW ends this season.
The CW has renewed BLACK LIGHTNING (season 4), THE FLASH (season 7), DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (season 6), SUPERGIRL (season 6) and its freshmen show BATWOMAN has been renewed for its sophomore season.
Other shows that were also renewed through the network were ALL AMERICAN, DYNASTY, IN THE DARK, LEGACIES, ROSWELL, NEW MEXICO, CHARMED and RIVERDALE.
The resident super villain, Jay Washington is here with a preview to arguably the biggest crossover event ever, CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS on The CW. The epic team up will bring together the six lead heroes of the Arrowverse together for 5 shows (BLACK LIGHTNING, respectively will not be part of the crossover).
Jay goes into a brief breakdown of the Crisis on Infinite Earths story from the comics, its synopsis and how it will possibly be translated into television format. Check out the preview below and Jay may also drop a brief spoiler or two. Enjoy.
What is set to be arguably the biggest crossover of all time is almost upon us. CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS will bring together iconic amd legendary characters from across the DC universe tv, film and even animated spectrum on the CW.
Falling within the Arrowverse, the crossover will span across 5 of the 6 superhero shows, ARROW, THE FLASH, BATWOMAN, SUPERGIRL & DC LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. Black Lightning will also be involved yet his respective show will not be included in the crossover.
The CW just released a new poster to promote the event and it is amazing. Check it out below.
In the middle of the poster in the midst of Lamonica Garrett as The Monitor, you’ll notice it says “its the end….of the worlds”. In the comics the giant event lead to the erasure of all of the other worlds leaving all of the heroes of one Earth. Could that also be the fate of the Arrowverse after?.
There had been much talk about the future of STARGIRL, would it actually air on the DC Universe streaming site or possibly be scrapped altogether. Well we now have an answer and it is an interesting one.
According to DEADLINE, STARGIRL will be the first original DC Universe series to air on linear television. The upcoming superhero drama will play on THE CW after its debut on the DC streaming platform.
Here’s a little more clarity on how this will work. The CW will broadcast each episode in primetime the day after it premieres on the DC Universe streaming service. STARGIRL is set to debut sometime during the second quarter of 2020. A premiere date will be announced later, along with scheduling information which night the show will air on the CW.
With both BATWOMAN and SUPERGIRL heading towards their ends of season around this time this may be the perfect place to fill the void on the network.
STARGIRL stars Brec Bassinger as Coutrney Whitmore aka Stargirl along with Joel McHale, Luke Wilson, Amy Smart, Trae Romano, Cameron Gellman, Yvette Monreal, Anjelika Washington, Meg DeLacy, Neil Jackson, Jake Austin Walker, Christopher James Baker and Hunter Sansone.
The resident super villain, Jay Washington had the opportunity once again to visit the set of Black Lightning in Atlanta.
Once again Jay was part of the roundtable interviews with the cast and it did not disappoint. First up was Marvin “Krondon” Jones III who portrays the villainous Tobias Whale.
Jones spoke on his characters evolution as well as his cerebral stature. Jones also goes in depth about his albinism and portraying the character with much realism and depth.
The third season of BLACK LIGHTNING on the CW is underway and while many are hurrying to get to the CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover, this season in itself is revving up with action. Now we are being alerted to another too talent getting in on that action.
Emmy Award winner and Grammy Nominee, Wayne Brady has joined the cast in the recurring role of Tyson Sykes aka “Gravedigger”. Brady is set to beging appearing in the beginning of 2020.
Sykes is a World War II-era member of the U.S. military who became a “super soldier” after a secret experiment gifted him with enhanced strength, agility, tactical genius, and hand-to-hand combat expertise.

His aim to create a sovereign land for metahumans within Markovia sets him on a collision course with the ASA and Black Lightning.
