For fans of The CW's Arrowverse, Tuesdays are usually big nights with both The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow both bringing new episodes. This week, however, Tuesday night isn't business as usual. Last week it was announced that both The Flash and Legends would go on a brief hiatus, delaying new episodes of the popular series. That means that when fans tune into The CW tonight while they will have episodes of both The Flash and Legends, they're reruns. There are no new episodes of either series being aired on Tuesday night.
Instead of new episodes, The Flash is airing "A Girl Named Sue" at 8/7c while DC's Legends of Tomorrow is airing "A Head of Her Time". According to the preview that aired last Tuesday night for The Flash's "So Long, and Good Night", that episode was set to air on April 7 as opposed to its originally scheduled date of March 31. It's expected that Legends may return at the same time, though thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting shutdowns of many television productions, it's possible that the schedule may see further shifts. In fact, on Monday it was announced that Supernatural would be going on an indefinite delay, prolonging that series' final season a bit longer.
At this time it is unclear how long the shift in The CW's schedule as it relates to The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow will have an impact. Stargirl is currently still set to debut on Tuesday, May 12 after the new series' debut on DC Universe on May 11. As The CW is known for having various small breaks in the Arrowverse schedule, it's possible that we'll simply see shows run their episodes straight through to season finales, leaving the door open for Stargirl to debut on time.
As for fans tuning in to get their fix for The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow, you can check out the synopses for the episodes airing for both shows tonight below.
