CBS commits to Supergirl series

Earlier this month it was reported that a Supergirl TV series was in development, reports were Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler are teaming up once again to adapt the Man of Steel’s cousin to helm her own tv show.

It is now confirmed that CBS has picked up the show for a series commitment, premise released is that she will in fact be Kara Zor-El, and is indeed Superman’s cousin, she has embraced her abilities and becomes the hero she was always meant to be. Reports are she is characterized as a 24 years old for the show, and that she escaped Krypton’s destruction.

All in all, this speculates that the show will be fairly accurate to the comics history of Supergirl and that CBS isn’t going through the Linda Danvers route.

  • I don’t think it will be a crossover with Flash/Arrow sadly. It could happen, but Supergirl being on CBS doesn’t help at all imo. But still, It could happen.
    Same with Titans.

      CBS is a partial owner of CW so it is possible.
