Synopsis: "Ridding National City of Queen Rhea and her Daxamite army was a major win for Supergirl, but one that came at a significant cost, as Kara was forced to sacrifice her budding relationship with Mon-El. When season three returns with all-new supercharged adventures this fall on The CW, Kara and team will come up against a new threat in the form of DC Worldkiller, Reign. Want to know more about Reign and what she has in store for the Girl of Steel? Join the series’ cast and creative team for a special video presentation, followed by a Q&A where they’ll discuss this hot topic and more!"
Odette Annabelle will be joining Supergirl season 3 as Reign, the Big Bad teased in the season 2 climax. Smallville's Erica Durance will be taking over the role of Alura, Kara Danvers' birth mother, from Laura Benanti. Sadly, Floriana Lima will be departing the show, appearing in a handful of season three episodes to wrap up Maggie Sawyer's arc with Alex Danvers.
Synopsis: "Running up against an evil time remnant version of yourself is something no one should ever have to do, but that’s exactly what faced Barry Allen (aka The Flash) as he fought to save the life of fiancée Iris Westfrom the God of Speed known as Savitar. Barry’s victory was short-lived, however, as an unbalanced Speed Force began to wreak havoc on Central City, forcing Barry to sacrifice himself for the greater good. With The Fastest Man Alive now trapped inside an extra-dimensional energy, and unknown dangers lurking in the shadows, it will be up to Team Flash to free Barry from his own personal Hell."
Season 4 will pick up six months after the defeat of Savitar, where Team Flash is trying to fill the void that Barry left behind. While Wally West will be donning the iconic scarlet costume of The Flash, speed won't be the most effective weapon against the brilliant mind of Clifford DeVoe, aka The Thinker.
In DC Comics, The Thinker was a tech-enhanced villain, utilizing a number of high-tech gadgets and a group of henchmen to commit his crimes. His signature device was a "Thinking Cap," that could project mental force. As The Flash producer told us at Comic-Con, this season will be about "The Fastest Man Alive vs. The Fastest Mind Alive."
Synopsis: "After crash landing the Waverider in a version of 2017 Los Angeles where dinosaurs roam the streets and the skyline is adorned with London’s iconic Big Ben clock tower, the Legends were quick to realize that “we broke time.” Last year, the loveable band of misfit heroes traveled throughout the timeline fixing a series of Aberrations. This year, they’ll be turning the crazy up to 11, as a wave of Anachronisms turns History on its head, leaving the Legends responsible for piecing it back together."
The core villains of season 3 will be the returning Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and newcomer Kuasa (Quantico's Tracy Ifeachor), both of whom have deep connections to certain members of The Legends team (White Canary and Vixen, respectively).
In regards to Darhk: he won't be working alone. As Phil Klemmer explained to us at Comic-Con: "We want to give him some real teeth and a real sort of sinister presence, and then we want to slowly build out his dark alliance and again, it would be great if we could take people and creatures from Flash and Arrow."
Synopsis: "With the future of the team left hanging in the balance, Arrow gave new definition to the phrase “blowing up the show.” Now, the focus shifts to uncovering the fate of each and every member of Team Arrow. Could anyone have possibly survived an island-wide explosion, or has the book closed on them, as it has on Oliver’s five-year flashback story?"
Arrow had a strong comeback season last year, which ended on a major cliffhanger that will sake up the show. Season 6 details are being kept vague to preserve the reveals of the premiere, but we expect to see a jump in time, and some surprises when it comes to the season 6 villain(s). As show star Stephen Amell teased in an interview:
"You don’t follow [Prometheus] up with one villain. Are you a fan of 24?...It’s more about the way that they introduced them on 24.”
If you don't get the reference: 24 would often dangle one villain in front of viewers, only to reveal several other collaborators throughout the season. Look for betrayals and secondary villain reveals throughout Arrow season 6.
