Supergirl Renewed for Season 2 and Moving to CW

Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) will return for a 2nd season in the spring of 2016 and there is a very strong likelihood that the girl of steel will not be returning alone thanks to her new network home in the US.

Season 1 premièred last October on the CBS network to phenomenal ratings success and positive reception. And while ratings declined as the season progressed – as generally tends to happen more often than not – they remained strong enough to warrant a renewal for Season 2.

Arguably the most popular episode of the season came  in the form of a crossover with CW’s The Flash, played by Grant Gustin.

It is likely because of the subsequent ratings boost that co-owners of CW, CBS, decided to shift Supergirl across networks. The implications of this have fans excited, as CW is home to series based on other DC heroes: ‘Arrow’, ‘The Flash’ and DC’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’; all of which exist in the same shared fictional universe and function cohesively together. Supergirl was able to feature The Flash due to the latter characters ability to travel to parallel universes with his trademark speed.

With Supergirl finding a new home at the CW for Season 2, it is very likely we will see more crossovers and interactions with not only the Flash, but also The Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) and the cast of ‘DC’s Legend of Tomorrow’.

Supergirl Season 2 will most likely air on Vuzu on DSTV later this year, or might also shift to Vuzu Amp to join Arrow and The Flash.

About Warren Kantor

Warren Kantor
A fan of most things pop culture related, from movies, to TV, to gaming, to comics and everywhere in between. A great lover of superheroes since my family bought me my first Spectacular Spider-Man issue in Umhlanga over 2 decades ago, having seen almost all animated series, movies and live action films produced by the BIG TWO from the 90's onward. My favourite hero from marvel is everybody's friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man and from DC it's a 3 way split between Batman-Superman-Green Lantern. Favourite Marvel villains are Green Goblin, Doctor Doom and the Mandarin. "Do you hear that Iron Man 3!!!!" >:( . Favourite DC villains include Joker, Two-Face, Clayface, Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Darkseid, Sinestro and more. Can happily read anything written by Geoff Johns any day and everyday. Give me superhero movies and TV as well and watch that smile grow larger than Galactus. Been playing video games since the flea-market Nintendo cartridge days, through Sega Mega Drive, Playstation, PS2, PS3 and now PS4. Seen over 2,200 movies throughout my life and nowhere near done. Barry Ronge, Siskel and Ebert...eat your heart out boys. Also a huge fan of Pro Wrestling in all it's forms for 20 years, and a passion that consumes most of my days. Throw in some NBA on the side, a latent need to cook and a love of art with a just a pinch of writing and you begin to weave together the tapestry that is my life. Or make that the recipe that is the gluten free side dish that is my life. What tapestry will we weave together next and will you have room for seconds?
