Return to DC Arrowverse Chronology

DC Arrowverse Viewing Order

This page is a simplified viewing order for DC’s CW shared universe (The Arrowverse). Although not technically part of the Arrowverse, I have also included the CW superhero show Black Lightning and the NBC show Constantine. For notes and an in-depth chronology of the Arrowverse, please visit my DC Arrowverse Chronology page. For the most part, the viewing order follows the airdate order, but there are several exceptions to this rule. To keep story arcs together, episodes are occasionally placed out of chronological order as well.

Also, I sort of got busy in Spring 2018, so I was unable to keep up on everything. The viewing order beyond “Crisis on Earth-X” needs A LOT of readjustment, which will require a complete re-viewing of each show for the 2017-18 season. I will fix it when I have the time.
