    With the Arrowverse growing rapidly, it can be tough to keep track of all the shows and what order to watch the episodes in. Even worse is the fact that episodes of Constantine and Supergirl were aired out of order.

    Most of the work in this thread was already done by an IMDB user called koomy, and you can find his list here:

    So anyway, here's the watching order

    Year Zero: The Flash (1990)
    The Flash 1.01 Pilot
    The Flash 1.02 Out of Control
    The Flash 1.03 Watching the Detectives
    The Flash 1.04 Honor Among Thieves
    The Flash 1.05 Double Vision
    The Flash 1.06 Sins of the Father
    The Flash 1.07 Child's Play
    The Flash 1.08 Shroud of Death
    The Flash 1.09 Ghost in the Machine
    The Flash 1.10 Sight Unseen
    The Flash 1.11 Beat the Clock
    The Flash 1.12 The Trickster
    The Flash 1.13 Tina, Is That You?
    The Flash 1.14 Be My Baby
    The Flash 1.15 Fast Forward
    The Flash 1.16 Deadly Nightshade
    The Flash 1.17 Captain Cold
    The Flash 1.18 Twin Streaks
    The Flash 1.19 Done With Mirrors
    The Flash 1.20 Good Night, Central City
    The Flash 1.21 Alpha
    The Flash 1.22 The Trial of the Trickster

    This series takes place on its own Earth and, as of November 2017, has had no crossovers with the other Arrowverse shows (aside from a brief cameo of John Wesley Shipp in the old costume during Barry's trip through the multiverse in "Welcome to Earth-2"). Nonetheless, at least five characters from the show have played doppelgangers of their 1990 characters on one or more Earths in the later shows. And there are also tons of general references to the show on the later Flash show, so it's good to have seen the episodes for context.

    Constantine can be watched at any point as it doesn't cross over until Arrow season 4. I placed them into the timeline based very loosely on airdates. Note that while my order for Constantine reflects production order as well as the order I personally think flows better, NBC did edit an explanation into "Rage of Caliban" to make it fit where they aired it. It's a single line of dialog by Chas spoken from off screen, which explains that Zed is absent. So watching it in production order does create a very small inconsistency, and if that bothers you then by all means watch in broadcast order.

    Vixen seasons 1 and 2 were originally separate things that fit into the viewing orders in their own way, but in early 2017 they recut them into a film and added some extra scenes to link them. These scenes take place immediately after the point where season 1 leaves off, so that's where I put them in the watching order.

    Supergirl takes place primarily on an alternate Earth and can be watched at any point as long as you watch episode 18 before Flash 2.18 "Versus Zoom". Like with Constantine in year 3, I just tried to throw them in there based loosely on air dates and how I feel they fit into the flow of the other series.

    As Supergirl season 2 picks up directly after season 1 ends, the first few episodes of season 2 actually take place before much of the ends of Flash S2, Arrow S4, and Legends S1. I have nonetheless chosen to put the Supergirl episodes in question after the season break, as I think it makes a lot more sense to keep the shows that cross over together linked by seasons. It's really not a big deal because the events take place on separate earths anyway. In theory you just have to be caught up on all the shows before you start watching Invasion, then follow the order from there.

    Constantine is being revived as an animated series on CW Seed, but at this point we do not know anything about the story. We don't know when it will take place, how much crossover it will have with the other Arrowverse shows, how much it will follow up on the NBC series or the Arrow S4 crossover, nor even when it will start production. Once we have more information I will decide whether to refer to the web series as season 2 of Constantine or as season 1 of Constantine (animated).

    CW has ordered a pilot for a Black Lightning show. Since Greg Berlanti is one of its producers and it's a DC property, it's probably safe to say there will be some sort of crossover if the show ends up getting a series order. It could end up on Earth-1, Earth-2, Earth-3, Earth-38, or maybe even its own new Earth.

    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. I just used it to relate the information that it doesn't take place on the same Earth as the mainline shows.

    Any chance of getting an update for this?

    Also, what led you to rearrange some of the Constantine episodes?

    I have a more current list. I will post it when I get home later tonight.

    As for Constantine, they aired an episode out of order because they wanted Zed to appear more quickly after writing Liv out in the pilot. The listed order is the production order and originally intended viewing order.

    Rage of Caliban was altered, though; there's a part where they explain Zed's absence in the episode, so it doesn't make sense if it's aired second.

    It's just one line of dialog spoken from off screen, saying she's in art class.

    I still think the series flows much better watching it second, but don't let that stop you from watching it sixth if that's what you prefer.

    updated through tonight's episode of Legends

    Also, Chronicles of Cisco ended up being 4 episodes rather than 6

    As of now this is complete, except for Vixen Season 2 which we know takes place sometime before Arrow's S4E15 "Taken" (we know this because Laurel and Vixen know each other when Vixen appears, even though they didn't meet in Vixen season 1)

    Next season should be a lot more straightforward with Supergirl moving to CW and synching up with the other shows more easily.

    Note that if you were looking at an older version of this guide, the order for the last few episodes of Arrow/Flash/Legends was altered significantly

    The Arrowverse now has
    22 episodes of 90s Flash
    92 episodes of Arrow (and 6 mini episodes of Blood Rush)
    46 episodes of The Flash (and 4 mini episodes of The Chronicles of Cisco)
    13 episodes of Constantine
    20 episodes of Supergirl
    16 episodes of Legends of Tomorrow
    6 episodes of Vixen

    Counting web series episodes, that's a total of 225 different stories to see in the arrowverse

    and for next season
    23 episodes of Arrow
    23 episodes of The Flash
    22 episodes of Supergirl
    13-23 episodes of Legends of Tomorrow (probably 22 or 23, maybe 16)
    6 episodes of Vixen

    So a minimum of 87 more episodes next year, if Legends gets the shortest order possible and there aren't any new web series (Chronicles of Cisco wasn't announced until right before it started airing)

    If we're going to get technical, the only things that are actually part of the Arrowverse are Arrow, Blood Rush, The Flash, The Chronicles of Cisco, Vixen, and Constantine.

    Supergirl and the 90s Flash series, while connected to the Arrowverse via the concept of the Multiverse, are not actually PART of it.

    They are, however, part of what I've taken to calling the Arrow-Derived Multiversal Reality Construct, which comprises all of the different "Earths" we've seen and the various series set on or involving said Earths.

    In my mind "Arrowverse" is a portmanteau of "Arrow" and "multiverse", not "Arrow" and "universe"

    Earth 2 and Earth 3 are part of the Arrowverse and they are not the same earth that most of the other shows take place on.

    Just a PSA

    Constantine is now streaming free on

    You can also find 90s Flash, Vixen, Birds of Prey, Justice League Doom, and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths in their DC Spotlight section, all free

    So at this point you should be able to watch the entire Arrowverse between Netflix, cwseed, and Youtube (as soon as last season's CW shows actually hit Netflix)

    Here's my Arrowverse watch order:

    Step 1: Disregard everything in the Arrowverse.
    Step 2: Turn on Netflix and watch DD S1/S2 and JJ.
    Step 3: Wait for more Marvel shows.

    I kid. It's a good list. I just lost complete interest in any DC properties over the last year or so that aren't just Batman. Even then it takes a lot to keep me there.

    I added the Constantine episodes into the year 3 watching list based partially on air dates, like I did for Supergirl in year 4.

    Also color coded it.

    Vixen season 2 should be narrowed down fairly soon as far as the year 4 placement, and it when it is that year will be complete.

    The upcoming year 5 will be a weekly work in progress, so it's quite possible (probable) that the viewing order will change as the seasons move along.

    Guess what was on the back of the Aquaman comic I purchased today?


    It's not listed for sale quite yet but it's coming. Great news. No more CWseed streaming for me.

    Fanicommander, thanks for assembling this order.

    I have one question about it. I've looked at other orderings on the internet, and they mostly agree with yours (although yours has much more detail). But there is one place where they disagree. Some of them assert that the following episodes must be in the following sequence:

    • Arrow 3x15: Nanda Parbat (2/25/2015): FS, RP. LL.

    • Flash 1x18: All Star Team Up (4/14/2015): FS, RP.

    • Arrow 3x16: The Offer (3/18/2015): FS, RP. LL, QL.

    • Flash 1x19: Who is Harrison Wells? (4/21/2015): LL, QL.

    • Arrow 3x17: Suicidal Tendencies (3/25/2015): FS, RP. LL, QL.
    Note that this is very different than the airing order. However, the argument made for the ordering above is that Felicity Smoak and Ray Palmer appear in the episodes marked "FS, RP" above, in that order. And Laurel Lance and Quentin Lance appear in the episodes marked "LL, QL" above, in that order.

    On the other hand, the ordering that koomy and you have created puts these episodes in the following sequence:

    • Arrow 3x15: Nanda Parbat (2/25/2015): FS, RP. LL.
    • Arrow 3x16: The Offer (3/18/2015): FS, RP. LL, QL.

    • Flash 1x15, 1x16, 1x17

    • Arrow 3x17: Suicidal Tendencies (3/25/2015): FS, RP. LL, QL.

    • Flash 1x18: All Star Team Up (4/14/2015): FS, RP.

    • Arrow 3x18, 3x19, 3x20

    • Flash 1x19: Who is Harrison Wells? (4/21/2015): LL, QL.
    • Flash 1x20, 1x21
    This is much closer to the airdate order.

    Can you (or anyone here) clarify which of these orderings is really correct? I suppose it comes down to the question of whether the Felicity / Ray / Laurel / Quentin appearances must logically be in one sequence or the other, or whether it doesn't matter.

    It's been a little while since I have watched year three but I believe the order I have is the best one. Sometimes you will have episodes from each series taking place over the span of several days so there are bound to be some small inconsistencies but I'm fairly confident in my list.

    Next time I watch the shows I will pay special attention to those specific episodes, but again, I think I have it right.

    Also, Vixen Season 2 will begin airing on Friday, October 14. As soon as it does we'll be able to figure out where it belongs and year four will be completely finished.

    With Constantine finally being released on home media in October it'll shortly be real easy to follow this Viewing Order, at least for the live-action stuff, which will be nice for those of us who are fans of the entire world that Berlanti and Co. have crafted.

    Constantine Blu Rays arrived today. Now I have the whole Arrowverse on disc except for the web series. I need a compilation of Vixen seasons 1 and 2 plus Chronicles of Cisco and Blood Rush. Make it happen WB.

    Arrowverse year five kicks off tonight.

    The early watching order will be simply based on broadcast order until something in the shows proves otherwise, so naturally it may change significantly as the season wears on

    I sort of wish Constantine came with a slip cover. It looks out of place with the others.

    Also wouldn't mind a 90s Flash Blu Ray set, but that probably isn't in the cards.

    One thing to note, the Vixen premiere has been moved to Thursday, October 13. Same day Legends of Tomorrow premirees. Arrow is tomorrow night and Supergirl is Monday, October 10.

    Freedom Fighters: The Ray isn't coming until 2017, and we're not sure exactly whether it will be a Spring/Summer kind of thing or if we'll have to wait until fall ala Vixen.

    Vixen season 2 episode 1 is available now:

    Still trying to figure out exactly when it happens but I have a bit of a range

    it has to take place after Flash 2.04 The Fury of Firestorm, because it has the Jackson/Stein Firestorm. And it probably takes place before Flash 2.09 Running to Stand Still, because Weather Wizard is in the Vixen episode and he goes to jail in that Flash episode.

    Another small update:
    I added the episode titles for the Blood Rush webseries. As far as I know the individual Vixen episodes and the Chronicles of Cisco episodes do not have titles.

    I'm not quite sure what to do about Supergirl right now.

    The season 2 premiere picks up immediately after the season 1 finale, meaning it likely takes place well before the last 5-6 episodes each of Arrow S4, Flash S2, and Legends S1.

    But on the other hand, it feels more natural to keep the seasons aligned with each other.

    Not sure that it matters much because there are no further Supergirl/Earth-1 crossovers in Year 4 after Worlds Finest, but I thought I'd make a note of it for anyone who cares.

    I'll probably just keep it as is, and re-evaluate when the crossovers start happening this year.

    Group the Supergirl episodes in like 5 episode chunks until it gets to crossover.
