Sophomore season will see Supergirl jump networks and move production to Vancouver
It’s been rumored for a while now, and as unlikely as it seemed, we now know it’s true: Supergirl will move to The CW this fall.
CBS put off the decision to renew the show until the very last second, citing the high license fee charged by Warner Bros. Television as a concern. With the move to The CW (which is co-owned by both CBS and WBTV), that will no longer be a concern.
Along with the move to a new network, Supergirl will also move production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, joining Arrow, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
No word yet on if this will mean a merger between the universes of Supergirl and the Arrowverse, but if the Flash crossover this season is a clue, we should expect to see a lot more synergy between the shows in the future.
UPDATE: Supergirl actor David Harewood reports on Twitter that The CW renewal is for a full 22-episode season:
