Rest easy, Kara Zor-El fans. Supergirl has been officially renewed… but not at CBS. As has been rumored over the past week, the superhero show will officially move to The CW to join its counterparts The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. All four shows are produced by Greg Berlanti, and The Flash and Supergirl enjoyed a quite lovely crossover last season. It’s likely that there will be some changes in store for the show with the move, including shifting the production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, where the other CW shows are shot.
