'Supergirl' Season 2: Series Being Moved to CW; May Have More Seasons After Season 2
Previous reports revealed that the second season of "Supergirl" will now air on a new network, CW. The popular TV series started on CBS but the new season will continue on CW. In the same report, it was highlighted that the move on to CW was to cut costs. Also, CBS's demographics cater to more mature audience and the superhero series is more suitable for younger viewers, which seems like a reasonable explanation to switch the network.
Peter Roth from Warner Bros Television says that it is not just the costs and the younger audiences of CW that encouraged the series to be moved to a new network. There are also talks about extending the "Supergirl" series for further seasons. "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," he revealed in an interview.
"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," he added.
In fact, "Supergirl" will have a longer season on CW with 23 episodes. Besides, there is a fair possibility that the show will go far beyond season 3.
