Get those countdowns set now, because we have a date for Arrow’s return to the UK.
GeekTown report that the show’s fifth season will be returning to Sky 1 on Wednesday, 26th October at 8pm. It means that the show will remain in the timeslot it has occupied since the beginning of last season; it has previously been placed on Mondays and Thursdays, respectively.
For comparison, The CW’s premiere date is Wednesday, October 5th, putting us three weeks behind. As a result, our coverage will be slightly uneven as we try and shield UK viewers from future spoilers due to the delay, but we’ll continue to do the best we can.
The premiere date means that the midseason finale is currently slated for a UK airing on Wednesday, December 21st, though that is subject to change.
GeekTown also confirm that Supergirl, which is now officially in the Arrowverse (if not only by association), will premiere on Monday, 24th October, while The Flash will return for its third season on Tuesday, 25th October. Both shows will air at 8pm on Sky 1. There is currently no date set for Legends of Tomorrow’s second season.
