CBS is getting closer to making their decisions known on a number of their shows, and for the time being, one that seems to have a lot going for it is “Supergirl.”
According to a new report coming in right now via Deadline, the network is inching ever closer to making a big decision on the fate of the Melissa Benoist-led series, which aired with a rather hefty budget over the course of the past year. However, there’s no guarantee that it will be brought back there, as there are serious talks about a move to The CW, where it can exist with the other Greg Berlanti superhero shows. Studio Warner Bros. TV is already set to make a move for the series up to Vancouver, given that this is where it can save a little bit of money as opposed to Los Angeles. “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Legends of Tomorrow” are all already stationed there.
Maybe it’ll be an inconvenience for the cast to have to move, but personally it’s somewhat of a thrill to see that “Supergirl” could be on a network that will embrace more serialized plotlines. Ultimately, we feel like it could make it a better show.
The report also mentions that signs are positive regarding a season 2 renewal for “Code Black,” albeit with a few changes here and there. The fate of “Limitless” and “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders” is not altogether clear, and it definitely looks like CBS is not putting much stock into “Rush Hour” as a series with a chance of sticking around.
