DC Arrowverse Chronology

This chronology for DC’s CW shared universe, also know as the Arrowverse, follows only the shows which are considered part of that universe. At the moment, this includes CW’s Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Vixen, NBC’s Constantine, and CBS’s Supergirl. If, at some point in the future, more shows (such as FOX’s Gotham) begin crossing over with this universe, as Constantine and Supergirl did, those shows will be added to the timeline as well.

It should be noted that Supergirl takes place on an alternate Earth from the rest of the Arrowverse, so it could still be considered as not part of the Arrowverse.

Most episodes of Arrow and some of The Flash follow two main story lines – a present day story line and a series of flashback sequences. The present day story lines, i.e. when the episodes are actually set, are in bold text, while the flashback sequences are in normal text. For the most part I have tried to follow the airdate order, but there are several cases where airdates have little meaning. To watch the episodes in chronological order, follow the bold text entries only. You can also use my DC Arrowverse Viewing Order to watch the episodes without breaking up cliffhangers.

6. Felicity visits Central City.

7. “The Rage of Caliban” occurs over the week of Halloween. Note that “The Rage of Caliban” was produced and filmed as the second episode of the season, but was aired as the sixth episode. For continuity purposes, I have restored the episodes to production order.

9. Arrow/The Flash crossover.

10. “The Climb” (Arrow) is set after “The Man in the Yellow Suit” (The Flash).

19. “Green Arrow” is set 6 months after “My Name Is Oliver Queen.”

30. Set 4 months after the main events of “Blood Debts.”

31. The Flash/Supergirl crossover. Occurs during the first couple of minutes of “Versus Zoom”. This episode places CBS’s Supergirl series within the same continuity as Arrow, albeit in an alternate universe.

32. “The Adventures of Supergirl” begins during the final scenes of “Better Angels” and continues for about three days.

33. “Legendary” occurs during the Arrow “Genesis”-“Schism” arc.

34. Begins 3 months after “The Race of His Life,” but resets to end immediately after “The Race of His Life.”

35. Set 5 months after the main events of “Schism.”

36. Probably a couple of weeks after “Legacy” to give Mad Dog’s leg time to heal from being shot by Arrow.

37. Set about 6 months after “Legendary.”

39. Begins on Thanksgiving Day.
