The Melissa Benoist led Supergirl series has found a home. CBS has picked up the pilot and ordered it to series for the 2015-16 season. While it is early for it to already have a pickup, it is assumed this was part of the deal so Warner Bros. could shop the series further if CBS passed on it.
Supergirl is set to revolve around Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), who escaped Krypton amid its destruction years ago, and has been hiding her powers on Earth she shares with her cousin, Superman. Turning 24, she finally decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always meant to be.
