The CW has announced an unusual scheduling change for the new year: when Legends of Tomorrow returns in February 2018, it will be taking Supergirl‘s slot.

The CW announced in a statement that Supergirl‘s third season will resume on Monday, January 15 at 8:00 p.m. New episodes will air for four weeks. Then Legends of Tomorrow will take over the 8:00 p.m. slot on Monday, February 12.

Legends of Tomorrow will then air new episodes for nine straight weeks. Supergirl will reclaim the slot on Monday, April 16 and air new episodes through June 18.

Legends of Tomorrow had been airing on Tuesdays at 9:00 p.m., but Black Lightning will premiere in that slot on Tuesday, January 16.

In chart form, the schedule looks as follows:

MONDAY, JANUARY 15 – FEBRUARY 5
Supergirl airs new episodes at 8:00 p.m.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 16
Black Lightning premieres at 9:00 p.m.

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 12 – APRIL 9
Legends of Tomorrow airs new episodes at 8:00 p.m.

MONDAY, APRIL 16 – JUNE 18
Supergirl airs new episodes at 8:00 p.m.

Per The CW, this will result in 23 straight weeks of new episodes on Monday nights.

The time slots for The Flash and Arrow will remain the same.
