Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Supergirl! And she’ll be flying high even longer, because the first season chronicling the adventures of Superman’s cousin has received additional episodes!
According to Variety, CBS has ordered seven additional episodes of Supergirl, which brings the first season total to an impressive twenty episodes. The move was expected, considering the impressive ratings the show has garnered since its debut in October. Former Glee star Melissa Benoist stars as Kara Danvers aka Supergirl, and the TV series is about her coming into her own as a superhero and following in her cousin’s footsteps.
The show is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, who is also one of powers behind hits such as Arrow and The Flash on The CW. So, if you haven’t given Supergirl a chance yet, make sure to read what we thought about the pilot and go watch it now.
I hope the success of Supergirl opens doors for other female characters on our TV screens and everyone realizes that they too are a force to be reckoned with, just like their male counterparts if not better.
