Supergirl Picked Up for Full Season

Supergirl will remain airborne through (at least) Spring 2016.

TVLine reports that Supergirl will remain airborne through (at least) Spring 2016.

CBS on Monday ordered an additional seven episodes of Greg Berlanti’s DC drama, bringing its Season 1 total to 20 episodes. Although that’s technically two episodes shy of a traditional full-season order, CBS is calling it a “full season” pickup.

Supergirl premiered in October with 13 million viewers and a 3.1 rating, tying NBC’s Blindspot as this fall’s biggest freshman launch. The show’s numbers have since fallen to Earth, with its most recent episode drawing a series-low 7.2 million/1.5 rating.

Personally, we here at SciFi Pulse feel the show would have been a better fit for the CW network where Arrow and The Flash are doing well with similar ratings. Moreover, we have to wonder if Bleeding Cool’s recent rumor/report of a May sweeps crossover with The Flash has anything to do with the decision.

Raissa Devereux became a life-long genre fan at the age of four when she first saw The Wizard of Oz at a screening at Arizona State University. Years later, she graduated from A.S.U. as an English major, History minor, Whovian, and Trekkie. Now a Florida transplant, she loves the opportunity Sci-Fi Pulse has given her to further explore space travel, time travel, masked heroes, gothic castles, and good yarns.
