A week ago today, we saw the season finale to the 1st season of CBS’ DC Comics drama, Supergirl, the story of Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), the Girl of Steel who stepped out of the shadows and became National City’s own guardian angel. Fans of the show have since the start of this year waited to find out whether CBS will renew Supergirl for a second season as this is the only DC TV show that hasn’t been renewed yet. The ratings has slipped throughout the first season, but still remained at decent numbers even though CBS were probably expecting higher, given how much resources this show requires in terms of special effects and more.
In addition, the L+3 DVR numbers also rounds it up to pretty good numbers in the end and even without DVR numbers, Supergirl is the comic book TV show with the highest ratings when you compare the numbers to what the shows on the other networks gets. Maybe there is no reason to be worried as CBS has yet to renew any of their new shows from this TV season. Who knows, maybe a renewal is coming this afternoon, this week or we are just simply having to wait till May 18 which is when CBS will be holding their Upfront. But in today’s television industry, anything can literally happen to our favorite TV shows because of how much TV viewing has changed. However, Supergirl is a show that should without doubt be renewed for a second season and today I’m giving my five reasons for why CBS should continue Kara’s adventures on the screen.
