Supergirl could be on the brink of a full season order, en route to a second season renewal, Greg Berlanti has hinted.
Speaking to Variety following the show’s premiere ratings success, the exec producer refused to put a date on when a back-9 episode order might be confirmed:
I have no idea. That’s another thing I can never predict. There was a read-through when the ratings came in. We all hung out and toasted, and (Warner Bros TV chief) Peter Roth came by. It was a special moment. Shows this size, it’s double the financial stakes for everybody. They are large things to pull off. You want them to work for everybody. It means years of livelihood for everyone. It was nice to get a nice start. It’s that great boost to get in the arm to keep going. That was the one challenging thing about premiering later.
However, with Episode 13 currently in the melting pot, Berlanti hinted that strong Episode 2 ratings could seal the deal, at least internally:
We’re shooting 10 and prepping 11, and drafting episode 13 right now, so obviously we’re excited to get another episode on air so we get to know if we’re going to get make more of these things.
