It’s been some time since The Flash producers cryptically suggested that Season 3 would take us to the famed Gorilla City of DC lore, and we’re not ones to keep a malevolent ape waiting. Reports confirm that Season 3 will bring back Grodd at some point in 2017, but how?

Gotham isn’t exactly making secret of Cameron Monaghan’s smiling return as Jerome Valeska in 2017, but his won’t be the only familiar face back from the dead. Our first synopsis for 2017 premiere “Ghosts” also reveals Paul Reubens back in his role as Oswald Cobblepot’s father, but how?
Supergirl Season 2 hasn’t lacked for notable DC villains, between Parasite, Roulette and more, but 2017 could prove even more charged. Multiple favorites from the series and Superman’s rogues gallery are signing up for 2017 returns, including Livewire, Metallo and more.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow wears all manner of sci-fi influences on its sleeve, not the least of which has been Star Wars. Now, the Legends’ trips through history will finally extend to a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away as well, spotlighting the origin of Star Wars itself with a young George Lucas next month.
The Arrow midwinter finale may not have answered the big question about Prometheus, but producers still threw one major curveball with those closing moments. Now, the first trailer for Season 5's January return gives a spoiler-y answer to Laurel’s return, as well as some fallout from the finale’s big death.
Legends of Tomorrow likely had the most cleanup after the four-way crossover, though winter finale “The Chicago Way” did manage to catch us up with Rip Hunter; albeit a very different Rip than we remember. Now, the 2017 return trailer teases a more fully-formed Legion of Doom, with a dumbstruck Rip as their prisoner.
Two different methods of time-travel between The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow were bound to leave history a little screwy, something Arrow fans found out the hard way with a bizarre “Flashpoint” change. Granted, said timeline-tweak could have connected Arrow to the “Star City 2046” of Legends’ first season, producers now admit to some uncertainty with their take on John Diggle Jr. and Connor Hawke.
If there’s one arrival Gotham fans are more excited for than The Dark Knight himself, it’s the return of Cameron Monaghan’s proto-Joker “Jerome.” 2017 trailers made clear we’d see the character again, but does a new premiere photo from “Smile Like You Mean It” reveal a familiar faceless grin? Might there be a bizarre tie-in with The Dark Knight itself?
If ever The Flash found reason to invoke Back to the Future, 2017 would be it. Our first look at Season 3's January return trailer sees Barry and Cisco trying to return to the the future vision that saw Iris’ deadly fate at the hands of Savitar, while Caitlin seems to be struggling with her own destiny.
Just when you thought The CW would take a breather from its four-night superheroics, in swoops our first look at Supergirl’s premiere in 2017. Our first trailer sees not only the return of Dichen Lachman’s Roulette, but also a red sun, and a first look at Kevin Smith’s Supergirl directorial debut.
