"Crisis" Management: "Arrow" Star Stephen Amell & More Look Back on "End of An Era" [VIDEO]

Now that the dust has settled from "Crisis on Infinite Earths" – and The CW's Arrowverse is a bit more "cozier" because of it – the changes are starting to be felt across all of our shows. Arrow is ending its run after eight seasons – only to become Green Arrow and the Canaries; while The Flash, Supergirl, Batwoman, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow have to rewrite their "universe scorecards" to adjust for some major changes in the status quo.

Did we mention Black Lightning doesn't have the benefit of past crossovers to help with its transition? Meanwhile, viewers have Superman & Lois to look forward to down the road as the pilot script was given a series order. Yup, change is in the air – and throughout the universes.
