There were worries that Supergirl wouldn't return for the fall TV 2016 schedule. However, the CW network acquired the rights from parent network CBS. Just when will Supergirl Season 2 premiere on the network? Will it be the same week as parent shows Arrow and The Flash?

While two of the DC shows start back next week, there is a little longer for fans to wait for the second season of Supergirl. The show is coming back a week later, premiering on October 10.

It is going to be a strange night for CW fans. Those who watch live are used to getting comedy followed by comedy. This year, Mondays will have the sci-fi superhero drama followed by the comedy Jane the Virgin. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has moved to Friday nights with supernatural program The Vampire Diaries! Those who DVR or stream later won't feel this slightly strange run of programs.

There were worries that Supergirl wouldn't get a second season. The show hadn't performed as well as hoped on CBS, but luckily CBS owns the CW, a network for younger viewers. The DC programs had already proven popular on the network, and there were many who hoped that the show would make a switch to keep it alive. There is hope that the superhero following on the CW will help to keep the show alive for a few more years to come.

The announcement that Supergirl Season 2 would stick to Monday nights was made in June, 2016, according to PremiereDate.TV. The CW finalized its programming, deciding that The Originals and Reign would no longer air in the fall TV 2016 schedule to help create room for the new program. Legends of Tomorrow would also move from the midseason slot to a fall slot in hope that it is strong enough to have four DC shows run back-to-back throughout the week.

Right now, the CW is running back-to-back episodes of Supergirl Season 1. They air at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Monday nights. The Season 1 finale will air on Monday, October 3, in time for the Season 2 premiere to air the week after. This is also the same week that Legends of Tomorrow will premiere its second season.
