The CW announced today that Supergirl has been renewed for a third season. The action drama will return this fall for what will be its second season on the network. After airing its first season on CBS in 2015, the show was moved to The CW for Season 2, which was seen as a better fit since it was already home to three other superhero series set in the same DC Comics universe.
Along with Supergirl, The CW also renewed its four other returning fall dramas today. Picked up for the 2017-2018 season are The Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supernatural. As for the network's freshman dramas, No Tomorrow and Frequency were absent from today's list of renewed shows. They likely will not be returning for a second season, but we won't know for sure until May.
