“Supergirl” bid farewell to its debut season with a promise of another installment with the finale’s cliffhanger.
The DC comic-based TV series has yet to be renewed for a second season, but given the tease at the end of “Better Angels,” fans can expect that the story of Kara (Melissa Benoist) is nowhere near its conclusion. The ender showed another pod, similar to what Kara rode when she first came to Earth, crashing near National City. She then opened it and was stunned by what she found inside.
While waiting for the official order for its sophomore year, fans can bank on series’ executive producer Andrew Kreisberg’s statements about what is in store for Supergirl’s future adventures.
“I don’t want to give too much away, but it’ll be cool. The fans are going to be excited. It’s going to definitely shake things up for season 2,” Kreisberg told Entertainment Weekly when asked about the unknown subject inside the mysterious pod.
Some fans speculate that whatever or whoever was in the transport capsule has something to do with Project Cadmus. Kreisberg confirmed that the special experimentation facility will be a huge part of season 2, one way or another.
The former “Simpsons” writer also talked about how far Kara is in terms of accepting who she is. The girl of steel seemed like she was already comfortable with her newfound powers and the responsibility that came with them that she was even willing to risk her own life in order to save the world.
“This whole season has been about her embracing being Supergirl. In a way, this was her graduation episode. She hadn’t fully figured out how to integrate being Supergirl into her life. This whole season has been a learning experience for her. At the end of this episode, she’s fully Supergirl,” the producer explained.
He also added that fans should expect a bolder and stronger Kara when the TV series returns for a new installment. The young Kryptonian’s current state of happiness in terms of her professional and personal life will be a huge boost on her confidence moving forward.
Meanwhile, it may not be long before CBS officially announces “Supergirl” season 2 as well as its next episodic run. Reports point out to May 18 as to when the channel will make the announcement in terms of the show’s fate. Co-developer Ali Adler is confident that they will be given the opportunity to tell the next chapter of Kara’s life.
“We heard very positive things, unofficially, from Les Moonves. [CBS Entertainment President] Glenn Geller and [executive vice president of current programs] Bridget Wiley they’ve all been very, very supportive. We’re definitely talking about what Season 2 looks like,” Adler said.
