Batwoman, The Flash, And More CW Show 2021 Premiere Dates Revealed

CW has revealed its 2021 release slate.


Get ready if you're a fan of The CW's Arrow-verse, as a whole slate of new seasons is coming to the network in the upcoming months. While many of these CW productions shut down to COVID, everything is back on track. In 2021, you can expect new episodes of Batwoman, The Flash, and more.

On January 17, the new season of Batwoman arrives. Back in May, Ruby Rose left the series in her titular role. However, Javicia Leslie will now star on the show, taking over the Batwoman mantle, and she looks pretty great. One other thing we know about the new season is that serial killer Victor Zsasz will be facing Batwoman.

CW's Black Lightning will also be returning for a new season, which kicks off on February 8. This will mark Season 4 for the hit series. And speaking of hit series, Season 7 of The Flash arrives on February 23. During DC FanDome, we got a sneak peek at the new season, and everything seems pretty dang hopeless.

Also arriving that month is the newest CW/DC show Superman & Lois, which features Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, both reprising their roles. The show will be written and executive produced by former Flash showrunner Todd Helbing, with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns signed on to executive produce as well.

Below, you'll find the release schedule for January and February for all the shows premiering on The CW.
