Next Week in TV 12/8: Crisis on Infinite Earths Begins, The Expanse Returns

By Scott, DRWHO42, and Alyssa

While many of us are in full ‘crisis mode’ to get those holiday gifts for friends and family, the Arrowverse fandom is also in that mode but largely for the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. The five-part crossover will see a select few from other universes teaming up to stop a major threat. This story was inspired by DC’s 1985 twelve-issue comic book storyline.

On Sunday, Supergirl will get Crisis going at 8 p.m. ET with part one. The story continues Monday in Batwoman, as well as in The Flash on Tuesday with both episodes airing at 8 p.m. The final two Crisis episodes will air on January fourteenth in Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The Crisis fun doesn’t end there Arrowverse fans. The CW’s Crisis Aftermath I and II specials are airing today (Sunday) and Tuesday, with both airings at 9 p.m. ET.

Do note that Black Lightning will continue its “Book of Resistance” story this Monday at 9 p.m. ET, before joining the Crisis event.

This Sunday will also see the series finale of HBO’s Silicon Valley at 10 p.m. ET.

The CW’s Riverdale series is going into hibernation for the fall, which begins this Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET. Supernatural is doing the same thing but on Thursday at 8 p.m.

After being canceled by Syfy and later saved by Amazon, The Expanse series will be celebrating its triumphant return to our galaxy with the airing of season four this Friday morning. Until then, the blog recommends reading Miclpea’s recent Expanse article to get you ready.

The other returning series airing this Friday is Marvel’s Runaways. Sadly, this third season will be the last one for this Hulu series due to a change of plans at Marvel.
