This is not a drill.

The Flash and Supergirl actors Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist will channel their real life superpowers next season - their amazing singing talents. Executive producers have revealed that two musical crossovers are in the works for last half of the season. Speaking at The CW’s Television Critics Association summer press tour presentation, executive producer Sarah Scheter said: “We’ve got such talented actors, 15 years from now when the last of these shows is going off the air, that would be a big regret [if we didn’t do it] – it’s too much fun not to.”

“When they’re not acting or flying or punching or exploding things, they’re singing,” Ali Adler added, speaking about Benoist and Gustin, who are both alums of Fox’s musical dramadey Glee. Alongside them, a number of cast members have done stints on Broadway, making the musical episode a no-brainer for the producers. The crossover will feature mainly cover songs, though the writers hoping to pen one original song per episode.

“We’ll be careful of how they break into song,” said Greg Berlanti. “Some of you may know my personal love for musicals, and we have a number of people who can sing across all the shows.” Producers mentioned those excited about the crossover include John Barrowman, Victor Garber, Jesse L. Martin and Jeremy Jordan.

Here are some of Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist’s finest moments during their time on Glee. If their talents here are any indication, this crossover will be worth tuning in for.
