Both Flash and Supergirl left some major threads hanging in 2016, and we finally have our first look at what’s to come next month. From ticking death clocks to alien journeys, 2017 is already looking up.

When last we left Flash, Barry had gotten an ominous peek at a future where Savitar kills Iris in five months. Not surprisingly, the back half of Season 3 will find him trying to figure out how to stop it. There looks to be some major fallout from the ticking death clock, and Barry and Cisco will be vibing away for a few more peeks at this future murder. But just watch pretty much any time-travel movie ever — seeing the future rarely goes as planned. 

Over on Supergirl, we see what looks to be a portal and Kara on what appears to be an alien planet with a red sun. Even worse? Supergirl is bleeding. Uh-oh. Dichen Lachman makes her return as Roulette, and James Olsen is still kicking butt and taking names as the Guardian. There’s also a good bit of Supergirl action, too, and this show really looks to be hitting its super-effects groove at this point.

Supergirl returns Jan. 23, and The Flash returns Jan. 24, on The CW.
