This week, CBS announced that Supergirl would be moving to the CW for it’s second season. It makes sense to be on the network with other DC shows like Arrow, The Flash, and The Legends of Tomorrow. The network announced today that Kara will be part of their annual fall crossover event featuring all of the above shows, in their largest event ever.
Usually, a series moving from a major network like CBS to a smaller network on the CW would be alarming, but not in this case. The show will move their filming location from Los Angeles to Vancouver to save money on production, and may be losing Calista Flockhart as well. However, the CW has proven to be able to provide quality production and special effects on a budget, so we’ll have to wait and see.
The CW is welcoming the series with open arms, and the network President Mark Pedowitz said “Next season, Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and now Supergirl will join forces in our annual crossover event, our biggest ever,” he said. The CW has been doing a superhero crossover since 2013 when Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen made his debut on Arrow before getting his own show in The Flash. The characters reunited in 2014 and 2015, and the later also brought in characters from Legends of Tomorrow before it premiered. Here’s a video the CW released to promote Kara’s arrival and the crossover event coming in 2016.
