This fall, the CW superheroes will once again unite across four shows to take down a major evil and we now have a title.

The episode will be called "Crisis on Earth-X" and center around Barry (Grant Gustin) and Iris's (Candice Patton) upcoming nuptials. As our beloved heroes gather to celebrate the long-awaited union, a wiley group of Earth-X villains drop by to crash the festivities and executive their deadly agenda.

In honor of the supersized TV event, the CW and Warner Bros. commissioned legendary comic artist Phil Jimenez (Wonder Woman, New X-Men) to create a special cover.

"We conceived this year's crossover to be evocative of the annual Justice League/Justice Society crossovers we grew up with and looked forward to as kids," executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg said of the crossover.

This year's four-part event takes place Monday, Nov. 27 and Tuesday, Nov. 28 starting at 8/7c on the CW. Arrow will air on a special night (Monday) for the occasion. Check out Phil's stellar artwork, which was inspired by the Justice League #207 cover, below.

Here's When This Fall's Arrowverse Four-Show Crossover Is Happening

Plus, here's when you can catch all four shows in the meantime: Supergirl will kick off the CW-DC season on Monday, Oct. 9 at 8/7c. The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow will premiere the following night at 8/7c and 9/8c, respectively. Arrow will debut on its new night Thursday, Oct. 12 at 9/8c.

Young Sheldon, The Big Bang Theory's spin-off prequel, premieres Monday, Sept. 25 at 8:30/7:30c on CBS, sandwiched between the Season 11 premiere of The Big Bang Theory and the Season 2 premiere of Kevin Can Wait.

After the premiere, Young Sheldon will go away for awhile and return with its second episode Thursday, Nov. 2 at its regular time of 8:30/7:30c after The Big Bang Theory.

If you can't watch the broadcast premiere, you can watch it on CBS All Access, which will have new episodes once they start airing. They'll be online the morning after they air. They're also available from YouTube, Amazon Video, iTunes and Vudu and Google Play.

Young Sheldon is very different from The Big Bang Theory. It's a single-camera (Big Bang is multi-cam), laugh-track-free comedy set in East Texas in 1989. It follows 9-year-old boy genius Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) as he starts high school, which causes all kinds of problems for his family. Zoe Perry plays his mother Mary. Perry is the real-life daughter of Laurie Metcalf, who plays Mary on The Big Bang Theory. It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Lance Barber plays his father George.


Young Sheldon premieres Monday, Sept. 25 at 8:30/7:30c on CBS.

Showtime Lands Bill Clinton-James Patterson Political Thriller

Showtime has given a straight-to-series order to The President Is Missing, an adaptation of a novel by President Bill Clinton and bestselling author James Patterson.

The novel is set to be published in 2018, and will tell the story of a sitting president's disappearance, told with a level of detail only a president would know. Though it's a fictional story, the 42nd President brings the depth of his expertise necessary to make it feel real. Combined with Patterson's thriller-writing prowess, it's sure to be a riveting read.

Showtime President and CEO David Nevins announced the deal Friday. Nothing about the show has been set beyond the fact a deal has been struck, so there's no premiere date or production team in place yet.

"I'm really enjoying writing this book and working with Jim," President Bill Clinton said in a statement. "And I can't wait to see Showtime bring the characters to life."

"Bringing The President Is Missing to Showtime is a coup of the highest order," Nevins said. "The pairing of President Clinton with fiction's most gripping storyteller promises a kinetic experience, one that the book world has salivated over for months and that now will dovetail perfectly into a politically relevant, character-based action series for our network."

"The White House is such an exciting world to explore and is made even more so with the unique insights of a former President," said Patterson. "Rich storytelling opportunities for this series abound."

The President Is Missing will be published in 2018.
