Crisis on Infinite Earths Heads Into Hiatus on a Deliberate Cliffhanger

"Crisis on Infinite Earths," which unfolds over Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow, will be a different beast than its predecessors. Past Arrowverse crossovers such as "Crisis on Earth-X" and "Elseworlds" aired their three or four-part storylines uninterrupted over as many nights in the same week.

However, "Crisis on Infinite Earths" will take a break after its third chapter in December and return for a two-part finale in January, and producer Marc Guggenheim has revealed the hiatus will come following a deliberate cliffhanger.

"The story for #CrisisOnInfinteEarths was worked out with this break in mind," Guggenheim told a fan on Twitter. "So Hour 3 ends on a cliffhanger. Sorry not sorry." What's more, it appears the fourth episode will not pick up exactly where the cliffhanger left off, as Guggenheim confirmed "The break is accounted for."
