As expected, the most recent seasons of all three shows will hit Netflix in October
If you’re one of the thousands of fans eagerly awaiting the release of the latest seasons of your favorite Arrowverse shows on Netflix, you’re in luck. Whether you’re trying to catch up before the new seasons begin or just jonesing to rewatch them, you don’t have much longer to wait.
The only bad news is this: if you ARE planning to catch up before the new seasons begin, you’re going to have a very hard time getting it done. Unless previous years where the latest seasons arrived on Netflix several weeks prior to the premieres of the new seasons, this time it’s all happening simultaneously.
That’s right, the previous seasons are actually hitting Netflix the same day as they new seasons begin. So even if you take the day off from work and stay up all night to begin watching the second they hit Netflix, you still won’t have enough time in the day to catch up before the new seasons premiere later that evening.
Here are the exact dates all three shows will arrive on Netflix:
The Flash – Season Two
Tuesday, October 4
Arrow – Season Four
Wednesday, October 5
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season One
Thursday, October 13
Supergirl Season One arrived on Netflix earlier this month, so there’s plenty of time to get caught up before it moves to The CW on Monday, October 10.
Under a new arrangement signed earlier this year, starting with the upcoming seasons, all shows on The CW will arrive on Netflix only eight days after their season finales. So next season will be a very different situation for fans.
Also, The CW recently announced that it is making all of its shows available for free on The CW app starting next week. So, while you may not be able to catch up with last season before the new season begins, you’ll have easy access to the new episodes once you do catch up.
