A new Supergirl TV series is on the works, it has been announced.
According to Deadline Hollywood, the decision to create a series out of the comic was made on Thursday night, and it will be aired on CBS.
Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she’s been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
The series will be written and produced by Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler.
Unlike Smallville – where the plot was all about how the young Superman battled to be deemed worthy to wear the famous red cape – Supergirl will begin with the character already using her full powers.
No date of production commencement has been announced yet.
