All Arrowverse shows have thrived until now, in terms of performance and reception, giving CW enough to renew them all for one more season. However, as reported, after these upcoming runs wrap up, the picture of the DC TV Universe may finally change or maybe become a bit different. And as reported, one of the shows may get forcibly cancelled due to ratings issues. Any guesses what that show could be? It’s Supergirl.
Supergirl To Get Replaced By Man Of Steel?
As far as we know, CW hasn’t been very happy with the ratings and viewing numbers for Supergirl’s solo outing recently. If everything continues the way it has been, these ratings may decline or go down further and it’s a strong possibility that the CW will wrap things up for Supergirl.
The CW seems persistent to keep the hit series going. However, it’s possible that a Man of Steel/Superman show may take Supergirl’s place on the Arrowverse. As revealed in earlier reports, the show would feature Tyler Hoechlin, who has already appeared as Superman in a few episodes of Supergirl. Also Elizabeth Tulloch, who debuted recently as Lois Lane in an Arrowverse crossover.
Supergirl Has Been Cancelled Once Before
The news of the cancellation for Supergirl isn’t a new experience for most fans on the series. Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist as the lead initially aired on the CBS before it was denied a renewal after one season.
It was then picked up by the CW, and its production shifted from Los Angeles to Vancouver. The series blended Supergirl into the Arrowverse. Arrowverse has been a wonderful home to Supergirl so far, with good performances and warm audience reception.
Arrow to also come to an end
This isn’t the only change that may come to the franchise. We’ve also been informed that both Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow are also inching closer to their end, after their fifth and eighth seasons respectively.
Arrowverse will get freshened up after the big “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover which will premiere this year. If this holds truth, then only the upcoming Batwoman and The Flash will remain. With a speculated Superman series and perhaps some unannounced projects joining the network soon.
For now, we do have a fourth and fifth season of Supergirl left. Episode 4 of Supergirl will air on Sunday, March 3.
