We are just totally stoked at seeing the first look at Supergirl, a new TV show set to air on CBS later this year. We’re huge fans of Arrow and The Flash, but come on, haven’t we all been wondering how long it’ll take to come up with a heroine-led superhero series? Sure, there’s Skye in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Black Canary in Arrow, but how about a titular character who’s female and who kicks some serious butt?
It looks like our wishes have been granted, with the show starring Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El AKA Kara Danvers AKA Supergirl—you might remember her from a two-season stint on Glee as Marley Rose. Also in the show are Jeremy Jordan (from Smash), Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal), Mehcad Brooks (Desperate Housewives, Trueblood), Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy), and David Harewood (Homeland). The show was created by Arrow and The Flash‘s Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler, the show has been picked up by CBS and should air in the last quarter of this year. We hope someone in the region is sitting up and pay attention, because we are going to want to see this on our TV screens as soon as it hits screens in the US!

Well? What do you think? We’re only sad that, with Supergirl on CBS and The Flash and Arrow on The CW, we’re unlikely to see crossovers, but the show is one wish granted, so what’s another, right?
