It’s almost that wonderful time called the fall TV season, where all our favorite TV shows return the small screen. This is especially special for DC fans, who have been able to see countless superheroes fully realized in shows like Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. Additionally, Archie Comics fans also got to see a strange interpretation of the wholesome characters last fall in the strangely not-so-wholesome Riverdale — which featured murder, teacher-student sex, and everything else in between.

The CW has released the synopses for the premiere of each of these shows, which we’ll reveal in their weekday order.

Let’s start with the Season 3 premiere of Supergirl, which premieres Monday at 8/7c on October 9!

“DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF YOU — Kara (Melissa Benoist) deals with the loss of Mon-El (Chris Wood) by focusing all her energy on being Supergirl and the mysterious new threat against National City. Alex (Chyler Leigh) confesses a secret to Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) about their impending nuptials. A citizen of National City has a mysterious connection to Kara, and Lena (Katie McGrath) makes a bold move. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Robert Rovner and Caitlin Parrish.”

Up next is The Flash, which premieres its fourth season on Tuesday at 8/7c on October 10.

“With Barry (Grant Gustin) in the speed force, Iris (Candice Patton), Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Vibe (Carlos Valdes) have taken over protecting Central City. However, when a powerful armored villain threatens to level the city if The Flash doesn’t appear, Cisco makes a risky decision to break Barry out of the speed force. However, the Barry that comes out isn’t the same Barry that went in. Glen Winter directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Todd Helbing & Eric Wallace.”

Premiering that same Tuesday at 9/8c is the first episode of Season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow:

“HERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME — When the Legends realize that they broke the timeline, Rip Hunter (guest star Arthur Darvill) arrives with his new organization – the Time Bureau – to relieve them of duty. The Legends are thrilled to get a chance to put the team back together but a new threat arises when Rory (Dominic Purcell) spots Julius Caesar (guest star Simon Merrells) in Aruba. Sara (Caity Lotz), Nate (Nick Zano) and Ray (Brandon Routh) devise a plan to steal the Waverider back from the Time Bureau in order to try and stop Julius Caesar from conquering the modern world. Victor Garber, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Franz Drameh also star. Rob Seidenglanz directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Marc Guggenheim.”

 

The following day on October 11 at 8/7c is the premiere of Season 2 of Riverdale:

“THE ANGEL OF DEATH — As Fred’s (Luke Perry) life hangs in the balance following the shooting at Pop’s diner, Archie (KJ Apa) struggles with the emotional aftermath of what he witnessed. Meanwhile, as Veronica (Camila Mendes) steps out of her comfort zone to support Archie, she learns that her father Hiram (Mark Consuelos) has arrived to Riverdale earlier than expected. Elsewhere, at Pop’s diner, Pop Tate (guest star Alvin Sanders) recounts the chilling details of the shooting, which leaves Jughead (Cole Sprouse) and Betty (Lili Reinhart) questioning the gunman’s true motives. Lastly, after running into Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) at the hospital, Betty and Kevin (Casey Cott) are surprised to learn about the fire at Thornhill. Rob Seidenglanz directed the episode written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.”

Finally, on Thursday at 8/7c on October 12 will be the Season 6 premiere of Arrow. Below is the most underwhelming synopsis of the group:

“THE AFTERMATH — Oliver (Stephen Amell) deals with the fallout of the explosion on the island. James Bamford directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Wendy Mericle.”

    Sorry, I must be getting really old, but the guys in costumes look cheap. Like 80s/90s cheap. Riverdale is something I will definitely give a chance, but those other shows look hilarious.

  • Wild Dreams

    The preview for Flash and Legends are the same, please fix.

  • Mr Smart

    Pathetic how the more diversely cast Legends has been forced to share the almost exactly same plot synopsis as the white cis-male led Flash.

    CW is openly saying diversity is a second class citizen. They might as well be Nazis at this point.

    • Psychotic Bitch With a Knife

      I disagree: They have a black Iris West, Black Wally west (two historically white characters), and countless of other minorities in these shows. They created John Diggle (a black guy), they are using Latino characters like wild dog and Vibe. The Arrow universe also has more Asian characters than any other current show or TV universe including the Marvel shows on Netflix. Don’t forget Black Lightning. Spread love not hate.

    • Fallout Boy!

      Lol troll

  • Psychotic Bitch With a Knife

    I liked the way Arrow ended last season. I hope this season is just as good if not better.
