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.
