As production on its Arrowverse shows has been halted, The CW has made some sudden schedule changes for The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
The Flash just aired the fifteenth episode of its sixth season, “The Exorcism of Nash Wells,” but it’ll be a while before the show is on our screens again.
Last week, it was revealed that production on many TV shows – in and out of the comic book genre – has been shut down due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. Much of The CW’s shows have been affected, as Warner Bros. shut down The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Batwoman and Supergirl. And, as a result of this, The CW has become one of the first networks to change things up, as alterations have to be made to its programming schedule.
As revealed by TVLine, the network will be shifting things around, as it rations the remaining completed episodes – meaning that it will be airing some repeats in place of originally scheduled programming.
The first show to face these changes will be DC’s Legends of Tomorrow as the upcoming episode, “Zari, Not Zari” was initially set to air on Tuesday, March 24, but instead it will be swapped with a repeat of the fourth episode of the season, “A Head of Her Time,” (which made its first broadcast on February 18).
In the impending episode, Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz), Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and John Constantine (Matt Ryan) end up in British Columbia in search of an enchanted device known as the Loom of Fate but end up coming across “Baby” – at least a version of Supernatural’s Impala.
The same unfortunately goes with The Flash on Tuesday, March 31. In replacement of the intended “So Long and Goodnight,” there will be a repeat of the thirteenth episode, “Grodd Friended Me”. Meanwhile the originally planned sixteenth episode has been pushed back to Tuesday, April 7. It will follow Joe West (Jesse L. Martin) as he is the latest target of the nefarious Black Hole organization, which sends contortionist meta, Rag Doll, after the CCPD captain.
