DC Arrowverse Viewing Order

This page is a simplified viewing order for DC’s CW shared universe. 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.
