CBS Plans To Renew Supergirl For Second Season


CBS has decided to renew all of this season's freshman shows, which means we're getting a second season of Supergirl!

The announcement was made by CBS CEO Les Moonves to those in attendance at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference. 

The DC Comics drama, starring Melissa Benoist, debuted late October last year to close to 13 million total viewers and was seen a success by critics. Since the first episode the show has introduced a wide number of characters and villains from DC Universe which has made it a favorite amongst fans as well.

Ratings have been slipping since it's inception but the show is still by in large far ahead of its superhero TV competition. In fact, the most recent episode had 6.69 million people watching.

With a crossover with The Flash coming down the pipe, it's clear the showrunners and the studio are enjoying the ride and taking fans along with them.

The next episode of Supergirl, “Falling,” will air Monday, March 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

    Honestly stopped watching after a few episodes. I wanted to like it, but I just couldnt. Some of it seems thrown together with little effort.

    awesome. ratings are good so it makes sense.

  1. Well I for one am pleased!! Wooohooo

  2. A good sign anyway, unless the ratings of the remaining episodes fall into a complete black hole and Rush Hour turns out to be a huge hit.

    GREAT news!!!! I love this show and am very glad to see a female character getting the love she deserves. Would greatly love a Wonder Woman series, animated or live, but for now, really glad to have Supergirl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
