The end of 2017 is fast approaching, and with the new year on the horizon, your favorite shows are a few short weeks away from returning. Among those shows are The CW’s prized DC series that make up the Arrowverse. The ones currently running are Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow.

While all four are set to continue next year, only three of them will begin in January (Black Lightning will take Legends’ place in January, and Legends will be finding a new spot once it premieres in February), and now The CW has released a batch of new synopses for the shows.

Check them out below:

SUPERGIRL: “Legion of Superheroes” (Monday, Jan. 15 at 8/7c)
Struggling to heal from her injuries inflicted by Reign, Supergirl remains in a dreamlike state, unable to be reached. Mon-El recruits one of the Legion members, Brainiac-5 (Defiance‘s Jesse Rath), to try to bring her back. Meanwhile, Reign continues her rampage on the city so the DEO teams up with the Legion of Superheroes to try to stop her.

THE FLASH: “The Trial of The Flash” (Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 8 pm)
As Barry’s trial for the murder of Clifford DeVoe begins, Iris and Joe must decide how far they are willing to go to keep Barry out of prison.

ARROW: “Divided” (Thursday, Jan. 18 at 9 pm)
Despite losing half his team, Oliver remains confident that he, Felicity and Diggle can stop Cayden James and Black Siren However, when he discovers one of Cayden’s secrets, he decides to team up with an unlikely ally. Meanwhile, Dinah spends time with Vince.

I think the weak link in this bunch here is Supergirl. It’s an awful cliché when we see our leads in some sort of coma, with our supporting cast working to bring them back. It gives them a chance to shine, to be sure, but it often makes it feel like the show is just spinning its wheels, which isn’t something everyone wants.

Which of these new synopses do you like the best, and which show are you looking forward to seeing returning the most? Let us know your thoughts down below?
