It is being reported that Supergirl has been renewed for a second season, but not by CBS. It had been speculated in recent weeks that the superhero drama might move networks were it to return, and today those rumors were proven true as The CW has picked up series for the 2016-2017 season.
The move puts Supergirl on the same network as related DC superhero shows Arrow and The Flash, the latter of whose namesake has already appeared in a Supergirl episode. Noted as being one of the more expensive shows to produce, Supergirl will be moving production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, Canada for Season 2 in an effort to cut down on its budget.
