Supergirl Renewed — Moves to the CW for Season 2

Supergirl

Variety is reporting that freshman drama Supergirl starring Melissa Benoist has been renewed for a second season, but is moving from CBS to sister network the CW, which is already home to superhero shows The FlashArrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

Although it was the highest rated new drama for CBS this year and brought the network its youngest audience, Supergirl always seemed like an odd fit at CBS; and the network had better ratings last year with the comedy block Supergirl replaced.

The show had its highest ratings ever when the Flash, played by Grant Gustin, crossed over from his show on the CW, reaffirming that the audience was there for Supergirl — just perhaps not at CBS.
