Catch ‘Supergirl’ Season 1 on the CW starting August 1st

Most people agree that the move from CBS to the CW might just be the best thing for Supergirl. Whether it be a change in tone (family friendly is great, but maybe Season 1 pushed a little too hard for that?), or just the benefit of being able to more easily crossover with the rest of the CW DC Universe, the only drawback might be a loss of so much Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart is unlikely to make the move to Vancouver).

While Season 2 of Supergirl won’t debut on the CW until October 20th, the show will actually make an earlier appearance as Season 1 will air for the first time on the CW starting August 1st. So if you haven’t checked out the show before, give it a shot now. Just be prepared for some changes starting October 20th.

Don’t forget, you can also pre-order the series on Blu-ray

Two Encore Episodes of “Supergirl” Will Air Each Monday Night

Until The New Season of “Supergirl” Premieres on October 10

July 6, 2016 (Burbank, CA) – The CW Network announced today it will broadcast the entire first season of SUPERGIRL on Monday nights starting August 1, with two episodes each week until the new season of SUPERGIRL premieres on October 10 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT).

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.

Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler (“The New Normal,” “Glee”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).
