The CW announced today that Supergirl has been renewed for a sixth season. Airing on Sunday nights for the past two seasons, the series has continued to draw respectable ratings that place it in the middle of the pack compared to other shows in the network's lineup.

The action drama has been a solid addition to The CW's superhero slate since its move from its original home on CBS after Season 1. On The CW, the show benefits from crossover episodes with other shows from the DC Comics universe, which have proven to give it a significant ratings bump.

All four other ongoing superhero series were also picked up today by The CW. Fans can look forward to more Batwoman, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning in the 2020-2021 television season.
