No Supergirl Crossover Planned For The Flash, Says Greg Berlanti

supergirl-flash

There are no current plans to cross over The Flash and Supergirl, according to Greg Berlanti, who runs both shows.

Over the holiday weekend, rumors hit that Supergirl would visit Central City and meet with the cast of The Flash. Early reports indicated that it would be a condition of Supergirl's full-season pickup, in order to goose ratings for both shows during May sweeps.

Today, though, Supergirl got an additional order of seven episodes and, following a screening of The Flash/Arrow: Heroes United, this week's two-night crossover event on The CW, Berlanti denied the reports.

"Only because we just received the pickup," Berlanti told reporters when asked whether preliminary discussions for such a crossover had happened. "But not at this point."

Supergirl airs tonight, bringing in Red Tornado, while The Flash and Arrow's crossover episodes will air tomorrow and Wednesday. All three series air at 8 p.m. ET/PT. CBS carries Supergirl and The CW has The Flash and Arrow.

    Okay, but this needs to happen ASAP!!!!

  3. Maybe it will happen at some point. I have enjoyed Supergirl very much, and am glad it will get 20 epsiodes, and there are people being negative about it, saying that the the standard is 22 episodes, but every season of the Walking Dead has less than 20 episodes, series on HBO and cinemax about 10 episodes, and Doctor 13 episodes per season and they are great. I am confident Supergirl will keep getting better and better, and will be on the air for a very long time.

    The reality is, Supergirl is expensive, involves complex effects, AND they started their season late. At this point creating a 22-episode season would be a huge burden on everyone involved. I'm glad they're erring on the side of what they can actually accomplish.
