The CW Delays New Episodes of Batwoman and Supergirl To a Later Date

Fans will have to wait for a little bit longer than usual to see the new adventures of Batwoman and Supergirl. Given the current global health emergency, The CW is delaying most of its shows involving superheroes. The superpowered alter-egos of Kate Kane and Kara Zol-El make no exception. This week, Batwoman should have aired with “A Narrow Escape” while Supergirl with “Deus Lex Machina,” but it seems that the first will re-air “A Mad Tea Party” while the latter will “Back From the Future Part Two” instead of the expected new episodes.

The shows won’t come back any time soon since the television network has already planned to re-airing the crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths starting April 6. It’s likely that fans will have to wait for the second week of April at least to see some new episodes.
