It came as no huge surprise when CBS announced Supergirl would be flying over to The CW for its second season. The series has always seemed like it’d be more at home on The CW anyway, where it’d be surrounded by other DC dramas like Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow. And now that Kara’s arrived, The CW is more than ready to bring her into the fold with the rest of its heroes.
The CW has announced Supergirl will be part of this fall’s annual CW DC crossover event, along with Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, making it the “biggest one ever.” And while it’s way too early for any footage from said crossover, The CW is eager to promote Supergirl as part of its growing superhero lineup. Watch the Supergirl The CW teaser announcement below. Read More »

UPDATE: TheWrap has confirmed that Supergirl will return for a second season on The CW. Production will also move from Los Angeles to Vancouver (where The CW’s other DC Comics dramas are shot) to save costs. Our original story from May 5, 2016 follows.
Right now the future of Supergirl is up in the air. The series starring Melissa Benoist completed its first season back in April, and CBS has yet to officially announce that the show has been renewed for a second season. However, there might be a good reason for that. A new report reveals that while CBS wants to bring the show back, it’s hard for them to justify bringing it back with the price tag of about $3 million per episode due to licensing fees. And when you look at the show’s ratings, spending that kind of money on the show just doesn’t make sense. There might be a solution, though.
CBS just so happens to co-own The CW with Warner Bros. Entertainment, and it sounds like there may be a potential plan to move Supergirl over there. But some sacrifices will have to be made to keep it afloat. Find out more about Supergirl moving to The CW after the jump. Read More »
