It's been a long winter but finally, at long last, our beloved superhero shows are almost ready to return for the rest of the season. When the many superhero shows went on their winter break in December, lots of threads were left dangling.

Now, almost two months later, questions will be answered and stories will be unraveled. Are you ready for the return of your favorite superhero shows? Take a look before to catch up and get ready!

'Gotham,' Monday, Jan. 16 at 8 p.m., FOX

When last "Gotham" saw Jerome (Cameron Monaghan), he was dead at the hands of Theo Galavan and somehow made his way to Indian Hill -- home of Hugo Strange (BD Wong) and his monsters. Now, thanks to a trailer, it looks like he's coming back and this time he has followers. The cult of Jerome is real.

'Supergirl,' Monday, Jan. 23 at 8 p.m., The CW

Mon-El is awake on "Supergirl" but there's some strange new aliens coming for him. Are they coming to do good or harm? That's one question we simply don't have an answer to. At the very least though, the first episode back is directed by Kevin Smith -- and if his work on "The Flash" says anything, it's going to be a great one.

'The Flash,' Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m., The CW

Rest in peace Iris West (Candice Patton)? Barry (Grant Gustin) traveled to the future and saw his lady love murdered by Savitar. Now he's determined to change the timeline and save her life. Of course, we know how well that's worked in the past...

'Legends of Tomorrow,' Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 9 p.m., The CW

The team of misfits have united under Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) as their new captain, but the location of long lost Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) has been revealed. Why is he a movie director in the 1960s? And what will it mean when he finally rejoins the team?

'Arrow,' Wednesday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m., The CW

Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) is back from the dead, which makes very little sense. Who is she really, and what does this mean for the team? "Arrow" is about to get very complicated -- and that's before you take Prometheus and the danger he poses into account.

Chris E. Hayner is equal parts nerd, crazy person and coffee. He watches too much TV, knows more about pro wrestling than you do and remembers every single show from the TGIF lineup. You may have seen him as a pro-shark protester in "Sharknado 3." His eventual memoir will be called "You're Wrong, Here's Why..." TV words to live by: "I'm a firm believer that sometimes it's right to do the wrong thing."
