Kara’s schedule isn’t going to be getting any less hectic. The CW has renewed their Supergirl TV show for season five which will air as part of the 2019-20 broadcast season.
A DC Comics-inspired action-adventure drama airing on The CW television network, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, Katie McGrath, and Jesse Wrath. The series centers on Kara Zor-El (Benoist), the cousin of Kal-El, i.e. Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). To remain safe from Krypton’s destruction, Kara grew up on Earth, as Kara Danvers, a human. For years, she kept her powers a secret. Now, as an adult, she works at CatCo Worldwide Media and also for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats.
The fourth season of Supergirl is averaging a 0.39 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.33 million viewers. Compared to season three, that’s down by 24% and 28%, respectively. The series has done well for the network, particularly as it helped to establish a new night for The CW.
Today, The CW also announced that nine other TV shows had been renewed for the 2019-20 season: Arrow, Black Lightning, Charmed, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, Legacies, Riverdale, and Supernatural. The fates of All American and Roswell, New Mexico have yet to be announced.
