“Supergirl” is moving to The CW.

After weeks of rumor and speculation, the CBS-Warner Bros owned network confirmed they are picking up the DC comic book adaptation starring Melissa Benoist for a second season, after its freshman season ran on CBS.

Production on “Supergirl” will move to Vancouver, where The CW’s “Arrow,” “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” are all filmed.

The series, from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, revolves around Kara Zor-El (Benoist), who escaped Krypton amid its destruction years ago, and has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, since arriving on Earth. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always meant to be.

Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter are executive producers.

Calista Flockhart plays Cat Grant, Kara’s boss, Chyler Leigh plays Alex Danvers, Kara’s older foster sister and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw, a former CIA agent and now the head of Department of Extra-Normal Operations and Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen.
