Back in March, CEO Les Moonves made the unofficial announcement that the freshman shows on CBS would be coming back. However, that changed several weeks ago when reports began to fly around that Supergirl wouldn’t be coming back due to budget issues. That’s when rumors and hopes that The CW would swoop in and save the day. It makes sense considering that one of the show’s creators, Greg Berlanti, has real estate on the network in the form on Arrow and The Flash.
Earlier this season, The Flash breached universes and networks when the star, Grant Gustin, made a guest appearance on the then CBS show. It was the highest rated episode of the season to no one’s surprise. Now that Supergirl will be on the same network as it’s other counterparts, it’s expected that the show’s ratings and popularity will see some kind of rise.
