Everyone seemed to really love the four-show crossover that happened last year on the CW — and we’re really looking forward to the next one!
“Next year, we’re hoping to do a true four-way crossover,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg shared to a small group of press. “The great thing about our dear friends at The CW and Mark Pedowitz picking the shows up as early as they did, [it] has allowed us to start building the schedules for next season.”
He revealed that this time around, it will really be a real crossover, involving all four shows.
“The single hardest factor in doing the crossovers is actors’ availability because the shows keep going on. We’ve got four shows and you’re basically juggling four shows’ worth of schedules.”
“The thing that we didn’t really plan on — again because we weren’t aware that we were going to switch Supergirl from CBS to The CW and it was really going to be part of it — that was the one show that actually didn’t have built-in shutdown days, so all the other ones did,” Andrew added. “Because the show starts on Supergirl, Melissa [Benoist] ended up being heavily in The Flash and then in Arrow.
“So Supergirl was the show we needed to shut down the most and it was the one we didn’t have any opportunity to. Now that we’ve gotten the early pickup and we’ve started designing the seasons, we’re building in those dark days — and actually more dark days on Supergirl than the other shows — to make it a little easier.”
