The show based on DC Comics' character, Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, stars Melissa Benoist as the titular hero. The buzz has been growing since the first official trailer was released with over 11 million views. CBS has an enormous amount of confidence in the series produced by Berlanti Productions, the creators behind the CW's winning Arrow and The Flash, as it quickly placed a series order soon after they greenlit the pilot.
TV pilots rarely leak this far in advance of its premiere but optimistically it could drive more eyeballs to the show when it officially debuts in November. The second trailer released was effective in revealing more action than the first one that was more light-hearted. With the leak, the show could benefit or it could be a detriment heading into the fall television season.
Supergirl is slated to join the CBS Monday night line-up at 8 p.m. putting it directly in competition with another DC Comics-based show on Fox, Gotham.
