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.
  • Black Lightning: This show started as its own thing, not part of Arrowverse continuity, but that changed with the Crisis on Infinite Earths event that brought these timelines, including Black Lightning, together.
  • 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.

  1. Jason Hamilton

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

  2. Jason Hamilton

    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.

  3. Kev

    Awesome List. Just watching all the series according to the Timeline. Very Helpful. Keep it coming!

  4. Jason Hamilton

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

  5. dugo1

    Why is Vixen Season 2 at this place? At this point in time, Firestorm is still ronnie Raymond, Ray Palmer is presumed dead and Oliver and felicity are still out of Team arrow. Am I wrong?

  6. Jason Hamilton

    Thanks!

  7. Jason Hamilton

    I will soon.

  8. Roy Bendy

    Looking online at other timelines, I noticed that black lightning and Constantine episodes were incorporated into the season’s of other shows instead of being lumped together by itself which was nice because you didn’t have to watch a whole season at once and try to remember what happened in all other shows if you couldn’t watch a whole season of black lightning or constantine in a couple days because of life. I just think incorporating the episodes of black lightning and constantine into the other arrowverse shows seasons (I would just note that black lightning isn’t part of the arrowverse originally, it didn’t tie in until 3rd season) feels more natural when watching the timeline.

  9. Chris

    Heres a big one, with Crisis on Infinite Earth tying the other DC films and TV shows together, will you be adding the Christopher Reeve/Brandon Routh Superman, the 60’s Batman TV show, the Burton Batman era, Birds of Prey, etc, into the Arrowverse timeline or is that too complicated?

    1. Jason Hamilton

      Too complicated. But I’ll be making notes and linking to some of the other timelines that are included in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.

  10. No name

    Still missing to much ties as with Titans, Lucifer and Raising Dion?

    1. Jason Hamilton

      They tied in almost every DC show or movie universe there is, so there would be simply too much to try and put on one timeline. There will be notes linking to other universes, but this will remain primarily for Earth Prime only, aka the bulk of the Arrowverse.

  11. Kev

    Little mistake with Batwoman. In the middle of season 1 switching from 1.** to 5.**.

    Keep the awesome work up!

  12. Angel

    could you maybe make a new timeline and name it as the “DC multiverse timeline”? 😀

    1. Jason Hamilton

      That would essentially be everything in the DC Comics category on this site.

  13. Angel

    Ah, I hear you lol I guess what I meant was everything thats crossed over with the arrowverse with the latest crossover event could be placed together in a multiverse timeline and strictly only those. For example the 90s flash, smallville, birds of prey, the film superman returns, the DCEU movies due to flash appearance, lucifer, and the dc universe shows (titans, doom patrol, swamp thing, star girl). But if all that seems unnecessarily too much I am completely understanding of that lol. Either way thanks for your work and effort. 🙂

  14. Aylex

    You list the first twelve issues of the Arrow comic, but what about issues #13-#36? When are we supposed to read them?

  15. NYCƉiesel

    This is amazing!

    You’re a Legend, Jason!

  16. Marc

    Awsome work, but I noticed two minor mistakes

    Arrow 6.03 – 6.06 are wrongly labeled as 3.03 – 6.06
    Batwoman 1.06 – 1.09 is wrongly labeled as 5.06 – 5.09

  17. Derek

    I don’t know how accurate this list is but according to Google, Legends of Tomorrow ends at Season 5, Episode 12, but your list ends at Season 5, Episode 8… Also, I have had this problem with google before, I do not if it is you or Google who mislabeled the episode, but Google says S5 E9 is Zari, Not Zari but for this list, it’s S5 E8?

  18. Shea

    What about arrow issues 13 and onward.

  19. Daniel

    for the people that use this list, how accurate is it?

  20. Daniel

    i thought there were more issues of Arrow.

  21. Daniel

    36 issues of Arrow, to be exact

  22. Violet

    Why is Vixen the movie or seasons 1 and 2 way before Arrow Season 4 episode 15 which is the first time I remember seeing Vixen on anything other than her own movie and show. There is a lot that happens between when the time line has us watch Vixen and the time we actually see her on Arrow. It’s easy to forget who she is with that many episodes in between. Plus Jefferson isn’t Firestorm yet when you have us watch Vixen and yet he his Firestorm in Vixen. I suggest you change the timeline to include Vixen closer to where Arrow season 4 episode 15 is in the time line. Also the titles for Supergirl season 1 episodes 4 and 5 are turned around. Livewire should be episode 4 and How Does She Do It? is episode 5, but the time line has it reversed.

  23. Violet

    Yes, Legends of Tomorrow’s Zari, not Zari is supposed to be season 5 episode 9 according to Netflix. episode 8 is supposed to be Romeo v. Juliet: Dawn of Justice.
