The CW Announces 'Black Lightning' Premiere Date, Midseason Returns of Other 'Arrowverse' Shows

Black Lightning is on the way, and it finally has a premiere date!

On Thursday, The CW announced many of its premiere dates in 2018, including new DC series Black Lightning, which will debut on Tuesday, January 16 at 9 p.m. The Flash will return on the same night, with its midseason premiere airing at 8 p.m.

Legends of Tomorrow is currently following The Flash in the Tuesday lineup and Black Lightning seems to be taking its place. Not to worry, The CW is moving Legends to a new night that has yet to be determined. The fall finale of the team-up series will air on December 5.

Supergirl returns the day before The Flash, on January 15, Dynasty and Riverdale premiere on Wednesay, January 17, and Supernatural and Arrow return on January 18.

Freshman military drama Valor returns on New Years Day at 9 p.m., marking the first series on the network to debut in the new year. Four days later, on January 5, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returns to the lineup.

For those wondering about the new Legends slot, the logical answer seems to be Monday nights at 9 p.m. following Supergirl. Valor is coming back a full two weeks earlier than the other shows, meaning it will conclude before everything else. Legends could slide in that slot once Valor concludes and provide a hefty one-two punch with Supergirl.
