Hey, "Supergirl" fans. We're definitely glad to be able to tell you that The CW wasted absolutely no time at all in giving your favorite show the greenlight for a brand new season 3! Their big renewal announcement was a part of the big 2017 "Television Critics Association" winter press tour way back in January 2017 when they revealed that six of their other shows got early renewals. Among those six were: "The Flash," "Jane The Virgin," "Supernatural, " "Arrow," "DC's Legends Of Tomorrow" and "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend."

Official statement

During the event, The CW boss Mark Pedowitz dropped an official statement.

He said that these shows are proven performers. They gave them early renewals to allow the producers to have plenty of time to get their storylines prepped for the new seasons. As always, this great news means that all you fans can expect to see a lot more new spoiler information, cast interviews, promotional photos, sneak peek clips and all that good stuff in the future weeks and months.

Lina Luther upgraded to season regular

Speaking of spoilers, we do already have a little something for you guys from the folks over at Deadline.com. It turns out that they've decided to go ahead and bump Lina Luther's character up to a season regular from the recurring fixture status that she currently has. This means that we'll be seeing her show up even more than she already has so that should be interesting.

Unfortunately, there are currently no other specific details on what her extra screentime will mean for her character. All we know is that she got the upgrade. Maybe she'll get a lot more scenes with Kara. And since she's going to be around a lot more, we might even see her finally find out that Kara is actually Supergirl. Who knows?

The possibilities are endless.

We do hope to get some sort of initial season 3 spoiler teasers later on this week after the big season 2 finale gets done airing tonight. We're quite sure that the media outlets will be swarming the producers to give up something so you'll definitely want to check around for that. Stay tuned.

Down 65 percent

Alright, so lets get into the rating numbers for "Supergirl." They definitely saw a drop over the course of season 2. The season premiered in early October 2016 to a 1.09 demographic rating for the 18-49 age groups and an audience of 3.06 million viewers in the United States. The demo numbers were down 65 percent from the season 1 finale episode. The viewer numbers were down 76 percent from the first season finale. That was to be expected since they switched networks from the much larger CBS audience to the much smaller CW audience.

The last episode 21 that aired on May 15th scored a 0.51 demographics rating and brought in 1.9 million viewers. The numbers fell quite a bit but the CW doesn't seem to care at all. We're guessing that season 3 will debut around the same time that season 2 debuted last year which was around October. We should get an exact date around late June or early July. Stay tuned.
