“Supergirl” Renewed for a Fifth Season

The CW has announced that “Supergirl” will return for a fifth season.

The early renewal announcement was delivered today, with the news that other DCTV shows would also be returning for another season, including “Arrow” (Season 8), “Black Lightning” (Season 3), “DC’S Legends of Tomorrow” (Season 5), and “The Flash” (Season 6).

“This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday – which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers. In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming. The early renewal of these signature CW series gives us a head start on laying out the 2019-2020 season, and this is just the beginning,” said The CW President Mark Pedowitz, “These shows provide a strong foundation for our multiplatform programming strategy, and we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”

Well…that didn’t take long. Looks like Supergirl will also be headed for show number 100.

Sounds good as long as they don’t make Superman a jobber.

I was going to make a similar comment. But instead I’ll just say #GETWOKEGOBROKE

Personally, I’m relived to see the thumbs up or down option for comments gone. In my experience, every comment that I made was constantly being negatively voted on. No matter what I said, I got a negative vote. It was a form of cyber bullying. I’m glad it’s gone.

Maybe it’s why it was removed, I suppose.

Bollocks! I used to love this show until they repeatedly castrated Superman via multiple poorly thought-out episodes. Is this a Superman homepage or what??!!

As much as I like the cast and direction and even the ‘political” story lines — I can’t stomach the writers’ ignorance and the disrespect they display for the character directly responsible for the very existence of… Read more »

I do think that at least the first part of the crossover was great. Still, I can’t deny that they did… Read more »
