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 »

This looks like a job for Supergirl! After debuting as the most watched new show of the season on October 26th, just over a month ago, Supergirl has been picked up by CBS for a full season order of 20 episodes.
The show has dropped in ratings since its debut, but that’s pretty standard for shows like this, where people might be curious about checking it out, only to realize that it’s not what they were hoping for. But the ratings haven’t dropped to a staggering low, making Supergirl good enough to keep around for at least a whole season. More after the jump. Read More »
