    Color key to make it easier
    Gold = The Flash (1990 series) (Earth-90*)
    Green = Arrow (Earth-1)
    Red = The Flash (2014 series) (Earth-1 primarily, but this show spans the whole multiverse at times)
    Purple = Constantine (Earth-1)
    Blue = Supergirl (Earth-38)
    Orange = Legends of Tomorrow (Earth-1)
    Black = Black Lightning (Earth-?)
    Gray = Vixen (Earth-1)
    Brown = Freedom Fighters: The Ray (Earth-X)
    Pink = promotional short series

    *Earth-90 is not an official designation.

    Most of the work in this thread was already done by an IMDB user called koomy, and you can find his list here:
    http://www.imdb.com/list/ls074499769/

    Show information:

    The Flash (1990)
    Technically the oldest show in the Arrowverse, but it was not originally envisioned as part of a shared continuity. It takes place on its own earth in the multiverse, which has so far not been given a name. The show ran for a single season in 1990 and was brought into the Arrowverse by the 2014 Flash series. So far there are no direct crossovers besides a brief appearance of the 1990 Flash in costume while Barry is running between earths in "Welcome to Earth-2". However, so far at least 6 characters from the series have played doppelgangers of their characters one one or more earths on the 2014 series: The Flash/Barry Allen, Julio Mendez, The Trickster, Prank, Officer Tony Bellows, and Tina McGee.

    Arrow
    The first show to take place in the Arrowverse proper and the anchor show on Earth-1. The Arrowverse began to expand in season 2, with the promotional mini series Blood Rush and the first appearances of future Flash characters Barry Allen, Cisco Ramon, and Caitlin Snow. Would also later introduce future Legends of Tomorrow characters such as Ray Palmer and Sara Lance.

    Blood Rush
    A promotional mini web series taking place during Arrow season 2. Can easily be found on Youtube and the whole series lasts less than 10 minutes. Explains a gap in the plots between episodes 6 and 7 of the season.

    The Flash (2014)
    The most popular show in the Arrowverse by far, and the one that largely connects the threads between the other shows. Primarily takes place on Earth-1 but spans the entire multiverse and different timelines. The show received set up in three episodes of Arrow season 2 before debuting on its own the following year.

    Constantine (live action)
    Originally airing on NBC, it was cancelled after one season. It was retconned into the Arrowverse after the fact when John Constantine appeared in season 4 of Arrow. As long as you watch his show before that point, it doesn't really matter when you watch it. Constantine appeared as a guest in season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow and will be a regular character in season 4.

    Two episodes aired out of order on NBC. My guide reflects production order since I think it flows better. However, the episode "Rage of Caliban" was edited with a one-sentence, off-screen voiceover explaining the absence of Zed in that episode to make it fit where they broadcasted it. So if you would prefer, you can watch Rage of Caliban sixth instead of second.

    Vixen
    The first animated series in the Arrowverse. Many characters from The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow make guest appearances in the first two seasons of the show. This version of Vixen guest stars in season 4 of Arrow, while her grandmother is a regular cast member on Legends of Tomorrow starting in season 2. The two seasons were cut into a film with additional content, as noted in the watching order. All additional content takes place directly after the season 1 episodes.

    The Chronciles of Cisco
    Another promotional mini web series taking place during season 2 of The Flash. Can easily be found on Youtube. Follows Cisco working alone at his lab during an overnight shift.

    Supergirl
    Takes place on Earth-38 but crosses over with the other shows (most often Flash) 1-3 times per season. Originally aired on CBS before jumping to the CW beginning with season 2. It was claimed that it had no connection with the Arrowverse but it ended up crossing over with Flash before the end of season 1, and then the other shows the following years.

    Two episodes in season 1 were aired in reverse order due to a bombing that happened at the time. This guide reflects the original order.

    Many of the episodes in season 2 actually take place directly after season 1 ends, meaning they would technically take place before much of the ends of the other shows in Year 4. I nonetheless broke them up by season since there are no crossovers at this point, and I think it makes the most sense to keep them grouped by year.

    Freedom Fighters: the Ray
    Takes place primarily on Earth-X and ties into the crossover event from Arrowverse year six. Animated webseries. The Ray appears on the live action shows and doppelgangers from the other shows appear on the web series. There are some continuity errors introduced by this show which Marc Guggenheim hopes to correct with the release of an official comic book tie-in.

    The Flash Stretched Scenes
    Another promotional mini series, this time airing during the commercial breaks of corresponding Flash season 4 epsiodes. Can be found on Youtube.

    Black Lightning
    So far there are no crossovers with the Arrowverse announced or planned, and it has been stated that it is not part of the Arrowverse. However, airing on the same network and sharing some of the same producers means it could only be a matter of time before it crosses over so I will continue to list it until shown otherwise. Both Supergirl and Constantine were at one point claimed to not be part of the Arrowverse, and they certainly are part of it now.

    Black Lightning season 1 can be watched at any point since there are no crossovers with the rest of the shows. I just tried to place them into the order in a decent story flow.

    Constantine (animated)
    As far as we can tell this is actually in continuity with the Justice League Dark animated film and the related ones. That pretty much precludes it from being on Earth-1 at the very least.

    That is one heck of a lot of work. Congrats to you and koomy :up: Incidentally, just looked at koomy's IMDb list that you linked - some of the comments are interesting reading.

    Yeah, koomy's page is a great resource. Mine has a few differences but his is the basis that I work off of.

    I'm a bit of a continuity nut. Not in the way of being obsessed about it but I find it fascinating and admire the hell out of a publisher/studio/network when they get it right.

    I'm thinking about doing another watch through with a crossover guide. It would be spoiler free, but I would mark every crossover episode no matter how minor.

    I'd just mark them with general info. Like the three episodes of Arrow that set up The Flash series, or any episodes of Flash and Arrow which have future Legends of Tomorrow characters, or episodes where villains jump from one show to the other, or when doppelgangers of 90s Flash characters appear, or when minor characters like Captain Singh cross over, or when there are extremely brief cameos like Barry popping up solely as a streak of lightning in a recent Arrow episode.

    Sounds like an extremely interesting and useful reference guide. Out of interest, how long do you think that would take you to do? It sounds like a monumental task.

    Probably quite a few months but I will update as I go along. I've been meaning to do a rewatch anyway to fine tune the order itself.

    So the animated Constantine series is way different from the live action. There are three possibilities:
    1. They simply retconned the live action show out of the Arrowverse
    2. The animated show doesn't take place on Earth-1
    3. The shows do take place on the same Earth but Flashpoint changed everything

    We know Chas is English in the new show, so clearly something is different.

    Not sure what to do about it. I think I will leave it alone until we get an official word, or at least until all the episodes are out.

    I haven't seen any of the animated Constantine. Just a thought, could it in any way tie in with the animated movie Justice League Dark, where he's again voiced by Matt Ryan?

    The writers said it was inspired by Justice League Dark, yes, but it doesn't seem to tie in.

    And being produced by Greg Berlanti and David Goyer would seem to indicate ties to one or both of the mainline Arrowverse or the old Constantine show.

    We'll just have to wait and see.

    I assumed that this means the Constantine Live Action show is on a different Earth and the animated show is on Earth-1 since the animated show is made by The CW.

    Nothing in the animated show really connects to the appearances Constantine has made on Arrow or Legends, though.

    YES!! The whole series has been great but that finale was awesome! I like it, maybe, better than any other CW show.

    Updated the viewing order as well as the information sections in the second post.

    Current issues:
    -We still don't know for sure if Black Lightning is part of the greater multiverse of the Arrowverse, and if so, which particular Earth it takes place on. I imagine come crossover time next season we'll get our answer.

    -We still don't know which Constantine series, if either, is actually canon. As it stands they contradict each other but neither contradicts the appearances of the character on Arrow or Legends of Tomorrow, so it remains an open question.

    Sorry for the long delay since my last update. All the stop-start scheduling and canon issues really slowed me down.
