Supergirl Season 6 is a go! The CW has granted early renewals to 13 of its already-running series for the 2020-2021 season (that’s right, folks—we’re in the 2020s now). Kara Danvers and friends will live to fight another day—you know, after they get out of this Crisis On Infinite Earths mess.
It’s a good day to be a fan of CW’s superhero line-up. In addition to Supergirl, Batwoman, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, and The Flash were all granted additional seasons. Outside of the superhero realm, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, Roswell, New Mexico, All American, Charmed, Dynasty, In the Dark, and Legacies were all picked up again for another season. Katy Keene, a Riverdale spin-off starring Lucy Hale that premieres on February 6th, was given an additional 13 episodes.
“These early orders for next season give our production teams a head start in plotting out story arcs and a jump on hiring staff, and this also provides us with a strong foundation of established, fan-favorite CW shows to build on for next season,” said CW prez Mark Pedowitz. “We’ve been thrilled with the creative direction of all three new series, and even though we are in the very early stages of our new full stack streaming strategy, which allows viewers to catch up on our new shows from the beginning, we’re already seeing incredibly positive results from our multiplatform viewership for Nancy Drew and Batwoman.”
Supergirl is currently in the middle of its fifth season. Following the conclusion of Crisis On Infinite Earths, it will return on January 19th.
