While 2016 was the year of the Invasion crossover, the Berlantiverse will be getting a very different type of crossover to kick things off in 2017.
Fan favorites Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Flash (Grant Gustin) will be reuniting once again in a musical inspired crossover next month. Gustin and Benoist aren't the only former Glee members involved, as Darren Criss will also be making the trip as the Music Meister. Criss recently shared a new video on his Instagram account announcing that filming on the anticipated episode has come to an end.

Criss' role isn't the only thing fans are excited to see, as previous teases revealed that Benoist will have a new costume just for the two-part event, and evidently the music's pretty catchy as well.
In the meantime, you can view the official description for the next episode of Supergirl below.
When Mr. Mxyzptlk (guest star Peter Gadiot), a magical imp, shows up on Earth and declares his love for Kara (Melissa Benoist), she tries to let him down easy, thinking him harmless. However, he decides it’s a challenge and starts to wreak havoc on National City. Mon-El (Chris Wood) has seen beings like Mr. Mxyzptlk on Daxam and knows how dangerous they can be. He and Kara argue over how to get rid of Mr. Mxyzptlk, further straining their relationship. Meanwhile, Alex (Chyler Leigh) and Maggie (Floriana Lima) celebrate their first Valentine’s Day together.
Stefan Pleszczynski directed the episode written by Jessica Queller & Sterling Gates.
