I was wondering what was taking so long for Supergirl to get officially renewed for Season 2. We all hoped it was coming, but today it's official! Supergirl Season 2 is coming, and there's also a bit of other interesting news to come along with the announcement. The series is moving from CBS to The CW for its second season, which is pretty much where the series belonged all along.
I imagine the reason why it took so long to announce was because of all the behind the scenes work involved making the major network change. Before the first season of Supergirl even had a network, there were rumors that it could land at either The CW or CBS. I wonder if The CW let CBS take it first to see if it would be a success there before they brought it into the fold with the rest of the DC TV universe. I think the real test came with The Flash crossover, which was a huge success for the series as it gave the show its biggest ratings.
I surprisingly fell hard for this series and I enjoyed watching the first season with my girls. It turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting it to be after that first trailer for the series hit. It's a wonderfully charming and action-packed superhero series that found its groove.
I can't wait to see what's in store for the second season, but I'm sure we'll definitely be seeing some more DC character crossover episodes.
