The CW is using one crisis to solve another: As the network adjusts to coronavirus-induced scheduling changes and suspended productions, the Arrowverse’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover will be among the reruns aired in early April, instead of new episodes.
The network previously aired a Legends of Tomorrow repeat instead of a first-run episode on March 24, and fresh installments of both The Flash and Legends will be replaced by repeats on Tuesday, March 31. Now, as announced by The CW on Thursday, the week of April 5 will also rely on some reruns, including all five parts of the “Crisis” crossover and previously aired hours of Batwoman and Supergirl.
Other series, however, will air new episodes as planned, including Roswell, New Mexico, Charmed and Nancy Drew.
After more than 100 series suspended production due to coronavirus concerns, networks are currently deciding how to roll out episodes that were already completed. Fox’s The Resident and CBS’ FBI, for example, have opted to end their current seasons with the next episodes that air.
