Comments: This show is a spin-off of The CW’s Arrow and Flash and it feature characters previously seen on those shows as well as others from the DC stable. The format is a season-long storyline that changes, along with the characters, each year.
Season End Status: This is the lowest rated of The CW’s four superhero shows, but it is still doing well enough for the network to bring it back for a third season. It has the opportunity to reboot itself each season, and the network may try tinkering with it when it returns build up a larger audience. You can see my thoughts on how The CW can shake up its superhero shows at this link. Season 1 and 2 of this are now available for streaming on Netflix.
