‘Supergirl’ season 2 renewal still in progress; budget cuts, move to The CW reportedly at play

Supergirl -Given the amount of love that is out there at the moment for “Supergirl,” we have to believe that the show will eventually be renewed for a second season. However, there are more and more complications coming in that suggest that in the event it returns, the show will probably be different in some way.

Per a report from TheWrap, the big issue CBS is facing with the Warner Bros. produced show is the┬álicense fee of around $3 million it pays to air the show, which is one of the largest ever for a first year show. Maybe if it stayed at around its premiere ratings, it could justify that. However, with ratings are what they are there may need to be some cuts to the budget to make things a little more accessible. Do we think that the show can make that work with less money? Probably. We’ve never thought that “The Flash” was a weaker show in terms of special effects, and they pull things off for a smaller price tag.

Speaking of “The Flash,” one other that the network is debating is moving the show over to The CW, where it will probably continue to generate decent ratings. We just don’t know where the show fits given that there is not a lot of open real estate there. Maybe you keep it in the same timeslot, boost either “Jane the Virgin” / “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and then hold one of the two of them for midseason? The only other solution is that you move The CW to three-hour primetime blocks, which we doubt is going to happen.
