“Supergirl” is a show that The CW is investing a lot of their success in, given that they acquired the show from CBS and are even planning to introduce Superman in by casting Tyler Hoechlin. Network head Mark Pedowitz has already even said that he envisions this show being one of the stalwarts on the network for them moving forward. When you consider all of this, it’s no real surprise that they have come up with a way to get the entire first season on the air.
According to TVLine, starting on August 1 the network is going to air two episodes of the show every Monday leading up to the show’s October 10 premiere. With this in mind, the entire first season will air, and viewers who didn’t catch the show on CBS will have a chance to catch up.
There are going to be some interesting changes that come with the show making this move; namely, we’re seeing production shift to Vancouver, there will be the potential for more crossovers, and we figure that the show will need to get more creative than ever when it comes to some of their budget. With CBS, you’ve got a little more leeway there.
In addition to meeting Superman, some other hot topics for season 2 could include the arrival of Lex Luthor’s sister in National City, and the mystery of who / what is in that pod that crash-landed in the closing minutes of the finale. Hopefully, the show won’t make us wait long for answers there.
