"Arrow" & "The Flash" Target October Premiere Dates

The CW's show lineup will get a little more super this October, when "Arrow," "The Flash" and a handful of other shows return with new episodes.

"Arrow" and "The Flash" will fill the same time slots as last year, debuting on Tuesday, October 6 and Wednesday, October 7 respectively at 8 pm EST. Likewise, "The Flash" will be paired with "iZombie," which airs at 9 pm EST, and "Arrow" will air with "Supernatural," which also landed the 9 pm EST block. "Arrow" is now in its fourth season, where "The Flash" will kick off its second season. However, still no word on when "Legends of Tomorrow" -- the "Arrow"/"Flash" spinoff show -- is scheduled to air.
