Supergirl received some good news today. CBS has extended the superhero drama's first season with an order of seven new episodes. That tops up its original order of 13 episodes to 20, which is just two shy of the typical "full" season of 22.
The Greg Berlanti series soared to a strong start for the network when it premiered in late October, drawing higher ratings than any of its other new fall entries. CBS is the latest network to add superhero fare to its lineup, joining Fox, which has Gotham, The CW, which has found success with Arrow and The Flash, and ABC, which airs Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter.
