CBS, riding a solid critical response and a nice improvement on the time slot in terms of viewers, has ordered seven additional episodes of Supergirl.
With this new order, the first season will now be comprised of twenty episodes, which as TVLine points out is less than the standard season order. Then again, less episodes in network television often means less decompression and more “getting to the point”, which is a net positive.
Supergirl has slightly fallen off in the ratings since 13 million watched its premiere. The most recent episode pulled in 7.2 million, a season low. Hopefully news of more episodes will encourage viewers to keep checking the series out.
