In a move that has been requested ever since Supergirl premiered, CBS announced today that Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen a.k.a. The Flash will make his way to Supergirl’s National City this fall.
“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl,” said The Flash and Supergirl Executive Producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.
While The Flash has frequently partnered with the other CW superhero show, Arrow, it was uncertain if a crossover with Supergirl would be logistically possible, considering that even though they share producers, the two programs are on different networks.
There are absolutely zero details why The Flash ends up in Supergirl’s world, or what villainy they might face but given his newfound ability to travel through “breaches” in the space-time continuum, he certainly now has the means to do this crossover.
The Flash / Supergirl crossover episode is slated for Monday, March 28 at 8/7c on CBS.

Supergirl’s world just keeps getting bigger—and more exciting.
CBS and The CW Network announced Tuesday that two of their respective shows will collide this spring. The Flash will appear in an upcoming episode of Supergirl, combining the two superheroes into one action-packed hour.
Actor Grant Gustin, who plays Barry Allen/The Flash in the CW’s The Flash, will make his way into National City alongside Melissa Benoist, who stars as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, on the special Supergirl episode slated for Monday, March 28 at 8/7c on CBS.
“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl,” said The 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.”
The producers also took the opportunity to thank the many fans and journalists who “kept asking” for a crossover special.
“It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support,” said Berlanti and Kreisberg.
