Back in the fall of 2015, one of the most exciting new shows on primetime was CBS' Supergirl. Ratings were good, buzz was buzzing, and it was hard to imagine that Kara Danvers wouldn’t be getting a second season of adventures. Months later, Season 2 is much less of a sure thing. Ratings dropped in the second half of Season 1, and the high cost of production might mean that CBS won’t consider Supergirl a necessary part of the roster for the 2016 – 2017 TV year.

The ratings may not have been the best on CBS, but there are still plenty of reasons why Supergirl deserves to be renewed for a Season 2. Cross your fingers, think positive thoughts, and take a look at seven big reasons why Supergirl needs a second season.

Melissa Benoist as Supergirl
1. Kara’s An Incredible Female Lead
Supergirl wasn’t exactly the only superhero series on the airwaves in 2015 – 2016, but it did have the distinction of the only superpowered leading lady on primetime. Melissa Benoist portrayed a Kara who was believable both as an alien from a dead world and a young woman trying to figure out her future. She showed great range when Kara was affected by Red Kryptonite and turned into Evil Kara, and she consistently pulled great performances out of the other actors. Now that the odds aren’t looking great for a third season of Agent Carter, we could use another awesome comic book show with a leading lady on the airwaves.
