The CW already has in mind a fall 2016 schedule with four DC dramas during the week, so why not make it five? CW Seed’s animated Vixen re-enters the fray with a Season 2 premiere the very same week as Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.

Supergirl may not have had any new footage to offer by this morning’s teaser, but how about photos from not one, but two new episodes to make up for it? Check out “The Adventures of Supergirl” in a new gallery, and chase it down with “The Last Children of Krypton”!
Supergirl got a later start on production than its CW counterparts, perhaps owing to its Vancouver move, but at last, Kara is finally taking off for Season 2. See for yourself, as Supergirl offers a slick new teaser for its newest episodes, with just a dash of Man of Steel.
It didn’t take long after the announcement of a musical Supergirl-Flash crossover for rumor mills to jump the gun with reports of Joss Whedon and Neil Patrick Harris, when in reality producers have only just begun assembling the four-way crossover. Now, DC boss Greg Berlanti updates on the musical, including a writer “we’re really excited about.”
Legends of Tomorrow fans had high hopes that DC figures like Jonah Hex could eventually come to populate the team, but even as Season 2 will heavily feature the JSA, consider this the next best thing. Johnathon Schaech confirms Jonah Hex’s return in Season 2, taking the Legends to “Outlaw Country.”
The third year of CW crossovers was already big enough between The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, before Supergirl unexpectedly flew into the fray. And while most details of the four-way teamup remain under wraps, producers suggest that Supergirl itself will play a limited role in the upcoming crossover.
Eleven seasons of The CW’s Supernatural have defied expectations already, raising the eternal question of when Sam and Dean might finally park the Impala for good. Heading into Season 12, however, both stars and producers are aiming for 300 episodes, which could mean a series finale in a shortened fourteenth season.
Suicide Squad has been something of a sore spot for fans; not just for movie audiences, but Arrow viewers in particular. The CW’s small-screen version of DC’s famed Task Force X was seemingly shelved by the movie’s announcement, but producer Greg Berlanti says we have it backwards: Arrow introduced Suicide Squad specifically to test the waters for a movie.
Supergirl understandably wanted to keep the emphasis on its title hero throughout Season 1, rather than risk any potential Superman overshadowing, though the series’ bizarre habit of featuring the character just offscreen had many wondering if TV-movie boundaries came into play. The arrival of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman in Season 2 certainly changes that, though producers say they were actually surprised by Warner Bros. decision to let them use the Man of Steel.
Behind Arrow and Flash, The CW released its first official photos from the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 premiere, bringing in everyone from Oliver Queen, to Einstein and Damien Darhk. What exactly Oliver’s doing aboard the Waverider is anyone’s guess, but he certainly doesn’t appear too happy with Heat Wave.
