‘Flash’, ‘Arrow’, ‘Supergirl and ‘Agents of SHIELD': Superhero TV Fall Premiere Roundup
Mondays will be for Supergirl come this October, while The Flash and Agents of SHIELD return to Tuesdays and Arrow is back on Wednesdays. With the CW confirming all of its fall premiere dates, we have a full calendar for the new and returning Marvel and DC super-shows on The CW, CBS and ABC this fall.
Arrow and Flash fans have quite a bit to look forward to in the coming weeks with a big presence at San Diego Comic-Con, hopefully enough to tide a bit of bad news. Both CW superheroes have set their returns for Seasons 2 and 4 this October.
Almost one year to the day of his series premiere, October 6 will see Barry Allen race out of whatever quantum paradox The Flash last found himself in, followed by the Season 2 premiere of the Vertigo Comics-inspired series iZombie. As with last year, Arrow Season 4 will debut on Wednesday, October 7, leading into the Season 11 (!) premiere of Supernatural. Legends of Tomorrow will likely keep until 2016):
CBS’ Supergirl series suffered something of a mishap in leaking its pilot just days after being picked up to series, and now Superman’s cousin at last has a proper arrival ahead. The network will premiere DC’s newest TV superhero in late October.
Flashing forward all the way to Monday, October 26, Supergirl will premiere at 8:30 P.M. after a new episode of The Big Bang Theory, the following week debuting in its normal time of Mondays at 8:00 P.M.
In addition, Supergirl features Owain Yeoman as DC’s Vartox, Iron Man villain Faran Tahir as The Commander, Smash star Jeremy Jordan as Toyman, former Super-stars Dean Cain and Helen Slater in secret roles, and Laura Benanti as Kara’s Kryptonian mother Alura. As with DC’s approach to movies and TV thus far, the new Supergirl series will establish its own independent continuity, outside of Arrow and The Flash, or the inevitable Justice League movie, as CBS boss Nina Tassler previously downplayed the possibility of any CW crossover.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has made some solid Season 3 casting changes to date, but speaking of dates, ABC has officially granted one to Coulson and his team. Agents of SHIELD will return in late September, as revealed by ABC’s fall 2015 lineup.
According to the network, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will start its Season 3 mission on Tuesday, September 29,
Elsewhere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3, we know that series regulars Adrianne Palicki (Mockingbird) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter) will also return, ABC having abandoned plans for a spinoff centered around the pair. The Avengers-adjacent drama will also form its own incarnation of the Secret Warriors storyline, presumably also helping build up to Captain America: Civil War, and breaking midway for Agent Carter Season 2.
We’ll see what Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter have to offer at Comic-Con 2015.
