The CW's Arrowverse burned so brightly for a whole decade, dominating the comic book TV genre and bringing superheroes back to TV full-time. For a while there, every network wanted in on the craze, with CBS greenlighting Supergirl (which eventually became part of the Arrowverse), ABC producing Marvel's Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter and even Fox trying their hand with Powerless.

But no network had the success with superheroes that The CW did. It all started in 2012 with Arrow (which came after Smallville's super successful decade-long run) before then branching out into The Flash, Supergirl, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Batwoman, and Arrowverse-adjecent properties like DC's Stargirl and Superman and Lois. As the kids say, this era was giving.

But even though all good things must come to an end at some point, the Arrowverse's eventual culmination still felt a bit premature. The Flash was the one to close it out with an impactful final sequence, but not all of the shows got to end on their own terms as an overhaul at both Warner Bros. Discovery and The CW resulted in the unexpected cancellations of some Arrowverse veterans.

Taking all of that into account, which of these classic DC TV shows ended on the highest of highs, and which ones deserved better? Let's rank the Arrowverse series finales and find out.
