It’s finally springtime, and in TV land, that means a couple of things. It means upfronts, where networks show off their new wares to advertisers. There are plenty of new shows in the works (as always), and the axe is sure to be falling on a few others. It also means season finales for big, 20+ episode series that started a new season in the fall — which equals lots of drama, final battles, and major cliffhangers for fans.
The CW, home to a huge number of hit shows, has been on hiatus for a few weeks, but the network’s biggest series return in the final week of April, and that means a countdown to the season finales. Now, the network has confirmed the final season appearances for six of its biggest shows, so that fans can mark their calendars, and get the tissues ready as they say goodbye for another summer.
THURSDAY, MAY 11:
Riverdale Season 1 Finale – 9 PM
THURSDAY, MAY 18:
Supernatural Season 12 Finale – 8 PM
MONDAY, MAY 22:
Supergirl Season 2 Finale – 8 PM
TUESDAY, MAY 23:
The Flash Season 3 Finale – 8 PM
WEDNESDAY, MAY 24:
Arrow Season 5 Finale – 8 PM
TUESDAY, JUNE 27:
iZombie Season 3 Finale – 8 PM
These dates are no surprise, especially for the shows finishing in the next few weeks. It would be highly unusual for a series to come back from a spring hiatus and then have another break among the final few episodes. This does also confirm that iZombie will have no breaks in its 13-episode third season. The fourth Arrowverse show, Legends of Tomorrow, is not included in the list as it wrapped up its second season at the beginning of this month.
Although this news does not reveal any major surprises, it does remind fans that there are only a few weeks left for all of these shows, so it’s time to start speculating on how they will end. Will the Riverdale murderer be revealed this season? Are the Winchesters going to war with the British Men of Letters? Can Supergirl save Mon-El, Barry Allen save Iris, and Oliver Queen catch Prometheus? And finally, will the zombies and humans come to out-and-out war in Seattle? Only time will tell.
