After The Flash and Riverdale complete their season-opening, much-ballyhooed five-episode “events,” the two CW shows will ride the pine until March 2022 — at which time they will each christen brand-new time slots.
The Flash is due to kick off Season 8 on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 8/7c, with the first of five weekly installments in the “Armageddon” team-up event. That same night, Riverdale at 9 pm will launch its five-week “RiverVale” event, featuring a crossover from Kiernan Shipka’s Sabrina Spellman (of the late Chilling Adventures of Sabrina).
After The Flash presumably survives “Armageddon,” the veteran Arrowverse drama will resume Season 8 on Wednesday, March 9 at 8 pm — its first time slot change ever — where it will lead into the Season 2 premiere of Kung Fu.
Riverdale similarly will resume its sixth season on a new night, Sunday, March 6 at 8 pm (lead-out TBA).
