According to Deadline, the recently revealed Supergirl TV series, which is being set up by Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti, has been picked up by CBS with a full series commitment.

This means the show has skipped the pilot stage that previously killed off Wonder Woman series Amazon at The CW and Aquaman’s Mercy Reef at The WB.

At the rate this is moving, we should be hearing about an air date very, very soon…

Arrow Season 3 returns to The CW on 8 October 2014 and soon after on Sky 1 and Sky 1 HD in the UK. You can buy Arrow Season 1 on Blu-ray for £11.25 at Amazon.co.uk. Find out more about the comics that inspired the show with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics
