‘Supergirl’ season 2: Studio chief on how CW move improves series longevity

Kara -

For those of you out there who love “Supergirl,” you also have to love the fact that it certainly appears as though the show has a much longer life ahead of it now than it would have had over at CBS. Sure, it may be somewhat of a bummer for it to be moved to The CW with lower ratings in mind, but look at it this way. On its new home “Supergirl” can have a longer season of 23 episodes, have lower expectations, and tell more stories that are in line with the entirety of the DC Comics universe on the network.

With all of this in mind, it’s pretty darn clear that the studio in Warner Bros. is thrilled with this move. After all, they own half of The CW! Speaking per The Hollywood Reporter, here is what Peter Roth of the studio had to say:

“The move of Supergirl from CBS to The CW is an outstanding shift in every regard. The show’s content is more appropriately positioned on The CW, and I believe it’ll ensure an arguably longer run on the network. I think the sensibility of the show is better for our producers and what it is that they want to accomplish, and CBS was very good to us in enabling it to happen.”

We’re excited to see what happens when season 2 does air this fall, especially given that the finale ended in such a way that there is really an open door still for what is coming up next. Personally, we hope that there is not another person with powers in the pod, though, mostly because we don’t need everyone to be capable of almost anything.
