Supergirl lives as series renewed for Season 2 - on The CW

SUPERGIRL is getting another chance to prove her worth. 

The freshman superheroine series had been the center of a lot of speculation lately, as CBS wavered on renewing the show for a second season due to its expensive cost. However, SUPERGIRL will be back for a sophomore run... only she'll be relocating to The CW as earlier rumors had suggested she might. 

The CW made the announcement about SUPERGIRL's new home after negotiations between CBS and Warner Bros. Television didn't get to where either party was satisfied, with the $3 million licensing fee per episode CBS was contractually obligated to pay the real sticking point in renewal talks. With SUPERGIRL's ratings okay for CBS, the expense wasn't worth it for the network, who was looking to cut costs somewhere if they were going to make the prior arrangement work. When they couldn't, The CW seemed like a logical new spot for the show to land if it was going to continue. 

SUPERGIRL should fit like a glove on The CW's slate, which now features four DC Comics series heading into the 2016-2017 broadcast season, joining ARROW, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and THE FLASH (who, as luck would have it, has already shared a crossover with SUPERGIRL). Moving forward, the possibilities are endless for a shared universe on The CW among these shows, especially with producer Greg Berlanti involved with them all. And by The CW's rating standards, SUPERGIRL should be a hit on their airwaves with the demographic they typically attract. CBS had been after something similar, but, with very few shows like SUPERGIRL on their schedule, the series always seemed out of place.

Greeeeeeaaaat

More garbage to shoehorn together and tie in too much while ruining other shows. This shit worked nicely ONCE and we got The Flash from it. But with Arrow being terrible, and Legends being mediocre at best, they'll be shifting the better writers over from Flash to make this shit show "better." Man, the only bad episodes of Flash were the annoying crossovers ones with Arrow. Can imagine how bad it'll be with this.

This is great news. I was always baffled at why they decided to put it on CBS.

I've never seen one episode, so I have no idea how good the quality is, but I always thought it was dumb that this wasn't on the CW to start with.

Watch "For the girl who has everything." It's really outstanding. Easily the caliber of the best Flash episodes.

It can reach Flash quality but it is far from consistent. The first half of the season was a rough stretch but once it finds its footing, it's worth the investment. Although the finale was weak.

Time fro a Crisis?

Given that it's not guaranteed that the entire SuperGirl cast will want to work up in Vancouver, and the idea they might want to do more crossover without it having to involve interdimensional travel AND it's been teased in the first season of The Flash, It may be that next season it is time for a CRISIS... One split over 4 episodes of the 4 series that will allow for a fusion of the universes.

But surely you can't make a Crisis without Superman?

After letting the travesty that is Gotham continue to live, they damn well BETTER renew Supergirl. It's not really a good show, but at least now we know their standards are consistent

Lets just hope there won't be any Arrow crossovers with their soap opera writers at helm. She whines enough as it is.
