The network upfronts are happening this week, which means we find out when new and returning shows will be on their various networks. Supergirl recently received a full season order from CBS. We still don’t know how many episodes that entails, but be do know what month, and what time the series will begin airing. You’ll be able to see Supergirl on Monday nights in November at 8pm. Yes that puts it in direct competition with GOTHAM, but I love Superman and Batman, so two shows inhabiting both those characters mythologies on the same night is a win/win for me! Thankfully there’s DVR, which means I won’t have to miss either. Here’s a six minute trailer that is full of action, drama, sci-fi, and humor. In terms of tone, it definitely has more in common with The Flash then say Arrow. Visual effects look fantastic! Melissa Benoist is so honest and earnest as Kara Zor-El, and Calista Flockhart absolutely nails the role of Cat Grant! You’ll hear more from me on an upcoming podcast, but this 6 minute trailer looks better then the entire 10 year run of Smallville!
