The CW has confirmed the season finale dates for their most popular shows, such as Arrow, The Flash, and Riverdale. The summer blockbuster season is right around the corner, and it's a good thing because the CBS/WB-owned network is starting to wind down the latest seasons of some of their biggest shows as well, most of which have been on the air since last fall.
The upcoming finales won't leave the network barren, however. The CW is currently working on a huge slate of reboots and new properties for its 2018-19 slate, including progressive spins on Roswell, which now tackles the subject of illegal immigration, and Charmed, which will now feature Latina sisters, one of whom will belong to the LGBTQ community. There are also plenty of returning series heading back to the small screen, such as The 100 and The Outpost over the next few months. But for now, audiences can look forward to the current on-the-air shows wrapping up within the next month or two.
The CW has confirmed the season finale dates several shows, beginning next month. DC's Legends of Tomorrow will wrap up season 3 on Monday, April 9, after which Supergirl will return the following Monday. Supergirl season 3 will then end on Monday, June 18. Black Lightning will wrap up its freshman season on Tuesday, April 17. Then, Jane the Virgin season 4 concludes on Friday, April 20. Riverdale season 2 wraps on Wednesday, May 16, with Arrow season 6 and Supernatural season 13 ending the following today on Thursday, May 17. The scandalous Dynasty will also wrap up that week on Friday, May 18. The Flash season 4, on the other hand, will come to a stop on Tuesday, May 22. And finally, iZombie season 4 ends the following week on Monday, May 28.
With The CW's huge slate of paranormal and superhero-based series, it's a likely bet we'll be seeing some major showdowns against some villainous big bads over the next few weeks. The Flash's Barry Allen is in the thick of his fight against The Thinker and there's a mystery girl hanging out in the CC Jitters coffee shop whose identity has yet to be revealed. Tensions have been running high on Riverdale, with relationship drama and masked killers running amok. And Sam and Dean will be meeting up with... Scooby-Doo - yes, really - in the near future.
Viewers seemed to have been getting burnt out on The CW's superhero heavy rotation when the Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Earth-X saw a drop in viewers as to compared to 2016's Invasion!, but the massively popular premiere of Black Lightning, which scored a two-year high for the network comparable to the runaway hit Riverdale, seems to have breathed new life into the superhero TV landscape for the network. However, it seems like they have their fair share of programs on the air for now.
