    Hi Dave;

    I just checked IMDB and Wikipedia (I know this isn’t always the best source) about Arrow. Both websites state Arrow returns on January 14th and not on the 21st as listed..This will be episode 8 and part of the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

    Unless you know something I don’t, … 🙂


    • Dave Elliott Dave Elliott says:

      Thanks Pat. It’s the CW press releases confusing me! They list Arrow Season 8 officially returning on January
      21st (same with Legends S5)… However… The two Crisis episodes air on January 14th, the week before. I’ve changed them both to the 14th now as that makes more sense! 🙂

  2. Isla Thorne says:

    Can you tell us when Man with a Plan and A Discovery of Witches return please?

    • Dave Elliott Dave Elliott says:

      Hi Isla,

      Man with a Plan Season 4 looks to be set for “mid-season” on CBS, but doesn’t seem to have been announced in the Jan or Feb dates… So March at the earliest I guess (mid-season is anywhere from Jan to April…)

      A Discovery of Witches Season 2 doesn’t have a UK premiere date yet, so we don’t have one for the USA either right now, other than sometime in 2020. I suspect it’ll be earlier in the year rather than later, but can’t say for sure.

      Dave 🙂

  3. Adam says:

    This is so useful – thankyou

    • Dave Elliott Dave Elliott says:

      You’re welcome, I’m glad you’re finding it useful. 🙂

      We’re still adding in the US dates (there are quite a lot!), but if there is any series you would like adding to track, just leave it in a comment on the page, and we’ll add it to the list. 🙂

  4. Pat says:

    Thank you, Dave!
