Fans across the globe able to watch the Arrowverse shows are eagerly awaiting the ambitious crossover event ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths‘ which aired last night (December 8) in America. However, U.K. fans will miss out on one episode of the five-episode crossover due to Batwoman currently not having a U.K. broadcaster.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will be shown over five episodes of the Arrowverse’s current shows consisting of Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which all air on Sky One in the U.K. a week later than they are broadcasted in the U.S, except for Batwoman which began in America this Fall and has yet to be given a U.K. broadcaster.
It is unclear as to when Batwoman will become available in the U.K. but it is clear that when the crossover airs in the U.K. it will be missing out the second part of the five-part event which sees appearances from Smallville’s Clark Kent and Lois Lane as well as Batman voice acting legend Kevin Conroy as Kingdom Come Batman.
Batwoman began on October 6, 2019, and follows Kate Kane as she becomes the vigilante Batwoman and battles to detain the villainously maniacal Alice who in reality is her believed deceased twin sister Beth.
Batwoman stars Ruby Rose as the titular female vigilante with Birds of Prey alumna Rachel Skarsten going from Dinah Lance to now Beth Kane/Alice, as well as Meagan Tandy, Nicole Kang, Camrus Johnson, Elizabeth Anweis and Dougray Scott completing the main cast.
This season serves as both a prequel and sequel to Batwoman’s introduction in last year’s Arrowverse crossover event Elseworlds.
In the eight episodes that have aired so far of the season we have seen classic comic-book characters such as Julie Pennyworth and Tommy Elliot make one-episode appearances as well as an entire host of famous Batman rogues being name-dropped and Bat-Family allies being honourably mentioned.
Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow are currently airing on Sky One Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively at 8pm with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow due to air its new season in 2020.
