Earlier, CBS made a pretty big announcement concerning the freshman shows on their network. According to the report, CEO Les Moonves made the announcement to those in attendance at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference. The big announcement was that CBS plans to renew all of their freshman shows. And yes, that includes Supergirl. So, to all the haters out there. Everyone’s favorite show to trash talk is getting a second season.

For many, this will come as a surprise. One of the reasons is because the show has seemed to struggle in the ratings department. Some even feel that the show’s superhero counterparts (Arrow, The Flash) are far more ahead as far as story telling goes. But one thing is for sure, numbers don’t lie. And if there is one thing that the show has been doing right, it’s in the viewership department. On average, The Flash pulls in about 4 million viewers while Supergirl brings in about 6-7 million. People are definitely watching the show. In the end, that’s what seems to matter the most.

Now that Supergirl is coming back for a second season, what does this mean for the show going forward? The fear of not knowing if your show will be coming back for another season probably does a number on the writers telling the story. For example, the first season of Arrow wasn’t the greatest thing on Earth when it premiered. But as the seasons have gone on, the show has gotten progressively better. And as many of you all should know, Arrow is another Greg Berlanti production. Hopefully, people will be saying the same thing for Supergirl in the future.

Up to now, the writing on the show has felt really tight. Almost like every episode might be your last, so you have get this great story out there. But they haven’t been. With the announcement of a second season, maybe things will loosen up a bit because now you have time – time that might not have been there before. The best episodes of the season have been the ones where the show has explored the character of Supergirl. It’s cool seeing some of these other characters coming onto the show like Red Tornado and Livewire. But the show has gone on this string of episodes with big fights and dropping names like bombs.

Many people don’t know who this person is. So watching episodes that really explore who Supergirl is are the best. Some great examples are “Human For A Day” and “Hostile Takeover.” So if you haven’t seen them yet, go check them out. “Hostile Takeover” has one of the best scenes of the series thus far.

Supergirl airs Mondays on CBS @ 8:00 PM EST
