Supergirl on track to be renewed for second season

CBS CEO made the announcement today

After its first season was met with critical acclaim and high ratings, Supergirl is on track to be renewed, according to Deadline.

Les Moonves, CEO of CBS, told investors during a call today that he and the network had plans to renew all five original series the network ordered this year.

Of the five shows — Limitless, Code Black, Life in Pieces, Angel from Hell and Supergirl — four are owned by the network. Supergirl is not.

The series, which Polygon has been covering week after week, debuted to an audience of more than 12 million people, but since then has dropped off substantially. The latest episode drew in just over 6 million live viewers, although even those numbers are pretty high for a network show in this day and age.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as the titular character and airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
