Supergirl’s first season was a bubble show on CBS which is a shame because the show’s first season was pretty great fun and deserved better – as the DVD set of the first season shows.
Executive Produced by Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schecter, Supergirl is a blue skies superhero show – achieving a feel not unlike The CW’s The Flash (a Good Thing since the show moves to The CW for season two).
Netflix will be the home for streaming of shows from The CW – the result of a new multi-year licensing agreement that will see Netflix streaming complete previous seasons of all of The CW’s scripted series.
These would include Supergirl, Jane the Virgin, The Flash, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Arrow and three new series: Frequency, No Tomorrow and Riverdale.
The 2016-17 Primetime Schedule for The CW welcomes Supergirl to the network by giving it its familiar 8/7C timeslot on Mondays, where it will be followed by Jane the Virgin.
The Flash will again lead off Tuesdays, but with iZombie being held until mid-season, it will lead in to No Tomorrow (a pair of polar opposites deal with an impending apocalypse); Arrow holds down its usual spot on Wednesdays where it will lead in to new series, Frequency – in which a young police detective establishes a real relationship with her late father via his vintage ham radio set.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns to its regular Thursday timeslot leading in to Supernatural and the Winchesters’ final clash with God’s sister; Fridays open with The Vampire Diaries’ 7th season premiere leading into the second season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
Riverdale (a re-imagining of Archie and friends), iZombie, The 100, Reign and The Originals are standing by to cover early cancellations and/or open the net’s mid-season. The full schedule and series descriptions follow the jump.
Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin play two of the most likable superheroes in TV history – and with Supergirl and The Flash crossing over networks and universes in a one of a kind adventure on Monday – they had a chance to talk about the Supergirl episode in which they meet.

I’m really loving Supergirl, although they need to do something about Cat Grant, I realize she’s basically comic relief but her character is terrible. Here’s a sneak peak at this week’s episode.
Supergirl does battle with the deadly Master Jailer, who is hunting and executing escaped Fort Rozz prisoners. Also, Cat hires a second assistant, Siobhan Smythe (Italia Ricci), who immediately tries to one-up Kara, and Kara and James disagree over the DEO’s methods, on Supergirl, Monday, Feb. 22 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
