The Arrowverse Episode Viewing Order

What started as a small, gritty realization of one of DC’s minor characters, the Green Arrow, has turned into a huge television universe. This is the Arrowverse episode viewing order (as well as a few books and comics), putting it all together.

What’s on the Arrowverse Timeline?

Welcome to our unofficial Arrowverse timeline, which assembles all of the media comprising the DCTV universe that started with Arrow on the CW. This is just one of our DC Comics timelines. This timeline includes media from the following:

  • Arrow: The CW show following Oliver Queen as Green Arrow as he defends Star City.
  • The Flash: The CW show following Barry Allen who gains super speed and becomes the Flash, defending his home town of Central City.
  • Legends of Tomorrow (LoT): A time-travel adventure on the CW, featuring multiple characters.
  • Vixen: An animated adventure found exclusively online. It features the character Vixen, a woman from Detroit with a magic totem that allows her to gain the abilities of any animal.
  • Constantine: A show that originally debuted on NBC, but ended after one season. The show was adopted into the Arrowverse timeline when the main character appeared on a season 4 episode of Arrow.
  • Tie-in comics: Several shows have tie-in comics and a few books that flesh out the characters/stories.
  • Supergirl: Though Supergirl exists in an alternate dimension from the Arrowverse, the Flash does possess the ability to travel the multiverse, therefore making it possible to meet Supergirl in her own dimension. Additionally, this show eventually merged with the main Arrowverse timeline.
  • Batwoman: The show that started with a backdoor pilot in the 2018 crossover, Batwoman eventually received her own series in 2019.

We hope you enjoy this unofficial Arrowverse timeline, and please let us know if there are any inconsistencies or errors. Furthermore, if you loved this timeline, be sure to look at some of our other timelines, like Smallville.

Please note that there are many other shows that make, as it were, cameo appearances in the Arrowverse. These include the original ’90s Flash, Birds of Prey, Smallville, Titans, and more. But this timeline deals exclusively with those shows that are primarily part of the Arrowverse. You do not have to have seen those other shows to enjoy the Arrowverse, though we do recommend some of them!

    When is Batwoman going to be added to the timeline? With the crossover approaching, I feel like it should be added soon.

      First few episodes are there. But the first season takes place before the last crossover, so they’re higher up.

    After batwoman episode 5, are the rest still before arrow season 7 or arr they going to time-jump to the present timeline of the universe?

      As far as I know, they are still around the same time. It’s not clear where the jump forward happens yet. It only lists up to episode 5 because that’s the number of episodes that had the information I needed when I last updated the timeline. Next time I update (in a month or so) I’ll have more info.

    Why did you remove the code colours for each TV series? They were really useful. Could you put them back?

      I’m working on it. The code isn’t working.

    Does that mean that it’s better to watch Batwoman and then go back to rewatch the rest of Arrowverse? I just finished Elseworlds and noticed that Batwoman was updated in….
