The next time you’ll see all those people in the picture in the same place? The week after Thanksgiving.

The CW has set Nov. 27 and 28 for the annual crossover event involving its DC Comics shows. “Arrow” will move out of its regular Thursday home to 9 p.m. Monday on Nov. 27, following “Supergirl.” The crossover will wrap up the following night with “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow.”

“We felt in this particular case we had ‘Flash’ and ‘Legends’ paired. It would be better and tighter to do it like a [four]-hour miniseries,” CW president Mark Pedowitz told reporters Wednesday at the summer TV press tour. “We thought this was the best way to go. We had a lot of conversations with producers and marketing people. Next year, we might go back to four nights.”

Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) was a part of last season’s crossover, but “Supergirl” the show didn’t carry much of the story. Pedowitz says this season’s story will be different: “It will be a full, four-episode crossover.”

He was light on other details, except to say that “romance is in the air.”

Last season’s crossover resulted in season-high ratings for all four series in adults 18-49 (with a tie in “Supergirl’s” case), and the biggest total audience for all four as well. The event gave the network its best weekly performance since December 2010.
