Summary and plot

Supergirl is a new superhero action and drama TV series based on a DC Comics character originally created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The series was developed and produced by Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg. The first season debuted on CBS on October 26, 2015.

Supergirl Kara Zor-El / Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) is a young superpower-endowed Kryptonian (one of the last surviving ones) on Earth and Superman`s cousin. She is, as any comic superhero, continually in the midst of exciting criminal intrigue, and has to come to terms with her powers as she reveals them for the first time amid an unanticipated disaster. With a little help from her friends she manages to overcome her personal issues, fights Kryptonite and Earth criminals, attempts to distinguish true allies and friends from traitors and will probably save the world a couple of times before the end of the season. Kara`s adaptive sister Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh), James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), Kara`s potential romantic interest, Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), a former CIA agent with eyes that glow red, and other characters assist Kara in her pursuits.

The reception of Supergirl has been generally favorable, with the critics noting Benoist`s sincere performance in the family-friendly superhero saga. The series` premiere came out with phenomenal viewing numbers – a total of 12,95 million viewers overall. Entertaining and light-hearted, the show has excellent perspectives of being renewed for a second season.

Season 1 recap

A 20-part debut installment of the CBS network’s new superhero drama series Supergirl bowed out on April 18, 2016 in the US. The season finale attracted 6.1 million viewers which is actually below the average viewership of 7.7 million fans for the whole first installment. As expected, the final episode ended with a major cliffhanger, the one related to another Kryptonian space pod and unanswered question about Kara’s fate. Although CBS is yet to determine the fate of the show, Andrew Kreisberg, one of the executive producers, has teased the fans about a second season. He said that as Kara has finally embraced her new identity, a second installment will feature a more mature and focused superhero.
