The Flash is speeding to National City! The Flash star Grant Gustin, in his role of Barry Allen/The Flash, will cross over to Supergirl in an episode to be broadcast Monday, March 28 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Details of the episode will be announced at a later date. Here's what The Flash and Supergirl executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg had to say in a joint statement about the long-awaited crossover.
"We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl - The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up! We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally, thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone's enthusiasm and support."
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh and Jeremy Jordan, with David Harewood and Calista Flockhart. The series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter are the executive producers of Supergirl, based on the characters appearing in DC Comics, and created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, by special arrangement with the Jerry Siegel Family. The series airs Monday nights at 8 PM ET on CBS.
The Flash, which airs Tuesdays on The CW, is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Todd Helbing, Aaron Helbing and Sarah Schechter are the executive producers. While it's possible that this special episode could lead to more crossover opportunities, we'll have to wait and see.
Ever since Supergirl was picked up by CBS, fans had wondered if it was possible for this series to cross over with Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg's shows Arrow and The Flash on The CW. While they do air on different networks, both CBS and Warner Bros. Entertainment actually own The CW, with the network's name actually a combination of the first letters of its parent companies. Are you excited that The Flash and Supergirl will finally team up next month? Let us know what you think and stay tuned for more on this highly-anticipated crossover.
