Good news Supergirl fans!

It looks like the girl of steel will have a full season run of 20 episodes! Yay!

According to TVLine: “CBS on Monday ordered an additional seven episodes of Greg Berlanti’s super-fun DC drama, bringing its Season 1 total to 20 episodes. Although that’s technically two episodes shy of a traditional full-season order, CBS is calling it a “full season” pickup.”

CBS notes that Supergirl has improved the year ago time period by 46 percent in viewers and 40 percent in adults 18-49.

We’re delighted because, while some may dismiss it as too light, we’re enjoying it a lot and feel it’s getting stronger week by week.

In related news, while there’s a Marvel V DC rivalry going on all over social media, it seems the comic heroes themselves care not a jot for it.

Jessica Jones herself, Krysten Ritter and Supergirl Melissa Benoist have been winning us all over by being utterly lovely to each other online. Check out there messages for each other below.

Ah, it’s sort of lovely…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
