‘Supergirl’ and ‘The The Flash’ to Unite for Crossover Episode on CBS

Superheroes Unite on the Different Network Dramas

Following the recent rumors, CBS has indeed confirmed that Grant Gustin of The CW’s “The Flash” will visit “Supergirl” on the Eye net for a crossover episode set to air Monday, March 28 at 8 p.m. on CBS. Details of the plot have not been announced.

“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we started making ‘Supergirl’ – The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!” said “Flash” and “Supergirl” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “We want to thank Grant Gustin for making the time to come visit (on top of his already immense workload) and all of the folks at CBS, The CW, Warner Bros. and DC for working this out. And finally thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”

While not a significant hit, 6.68 million viewers and a 1.5 rating/5 share for the most recent episode, and a younger audience skew than the traditional CBS series, should warrant a second season renewal for “Supergirl.”
