Season 1 Reruns Begin on CW

The rerun issue has been in flux ever since the move to the CW was announced for season 2. There were several legal questions about who owns the show, who can play it, who can stream it and so on. Well now we have our official solution. The CW will begin airing season 1 (in its entirety) on Monday nights both at 8pm and 9pm starting August 1st. This means double Supergirl Monday's in August and September all leading up to the season 2 premiere on October 10th! This is going to be huge for those that are really feeling the Supergirl drought this summer and with the final issue of Sterling Gate's Adventures of Supergirl coming to an end next Monday, we need this BADLY! Below is the Press Release:

SUPERGIRL” SEASON ONE TO TAKE OVER The CW’S MONDAY NIGHTS STARTING AUGUST 1 Two Encore Episodes of “Supergirl” Will Air Each Monday Night Until The New Season of “Supergirl” Premieres on October 10 July 6, 2016 (Burbank, CA) – The CW Network announced today it will broadcast the entire first season of SUPERGIRL on Monday nights starting August 1, with two episodes each week until the new season of SUPERGIRL premieres on October 10 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT).

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.

Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler (“The New Normal,” “Glee”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).
