‘Supergirl’ – the TV show

“Supergirl” is a famous American drama created by Ali Adler and Greg Berlanti, with Andrew Kreisberg serving as co-producer.

The story is inspired by a novel of the same name by Otto Binder. In May 2015, the network ordered new episodes and shooting began in March 2016.

The story is about a young girl, Kara Zor-El, who is sent to another planet by her parents Alura and Zor-El. She aims to protect the infant cousin, Kal-El, from an explosion and stays on the new planet for about 20 years.

Production and critical reception

In 2014, Warner Bros. Television showed interest in developing a TV show about Supergirl.

Greg (Arrow, The Flash) was hired as the co-producer. He began writing the story and dialogues along with Berlanti Productions' Sarah Schechter and Ali Adler.

Several titles remained under consideration for the show, including “Girl,” and “Super.” In January 2015, Berlanti said in an interview that “Supergirl” has been finalized as the series title.

In those days, CBS showed interest in acquiring the rights, but the deal was finalized with The CW for $14 million.

On review aggregation website, Rotten Tomatoes, “Supergirl” has an approved rating of 96% based on 76 critics. On Metacritic, the show has a score of 72 out of 100 based on 33 reviews. Cliff Wheatley from IGN praised the subject and Melissa’s performance as Kara.

In October 2014, Berlanti showed interest in “Supergirl” existing in the Arrowverse, the same universe where “The Flash,” and “Arrow” are already featured.

In 2015, The CW president Mark Pedowitz showed interest in a crossover between the networks and shows. Later on, CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler stated that the programs would premiere on different channels to avoid confusion. In February 2016, a Television Critics Association spokesperson revealed that “Supergirl” will be renewed for at least ten seasons.

We look forward to the new episodes of “Supergirl” and have high expectations.
