SUPERGIRL TV Series Starring Melissa Benoist Lands Series Order From CBS

Despite recent rumours that Supergirl might fly onto The CW, it has been picked up to series by CBS. Hit the jump for details on the deal, and to find out roughly when we should expect to see Superman's cousin (played by Glee's Melissa Benoist) reach the small screen.


CBS has today confirmed that Supergirl has been ordered to series for the 2015-16 season. This is the first show to be picked up this year, but an early decision was part of the original deal (presumably so Warner Bros. could take the show elsewhere if the network wasn't interested).

Supergirl will revolve around Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who escaped Krypton amid its destruction years ago, and has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, since arriving on Earth. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always meant to be.

The rest of the cast includes Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Mehcad Brooks, Laura Benanti, Dean Cain, and Helen Slater. Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are writing the one-hour drama, and also executive producing, along with Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg.
