CBS' "Supergirl"  joins "The Flash" and "DC Legends of Tomorrow" super heroes this fall on the CW, which today was the fourth and final TV network to announce its new season.

"Supergirl," starring Melissa Benoist,  returns to 8 p.m. Monday – where it premiered last fall on CBS-- on the CW network owned jointly by CBS and Warner Bros. 

The CW will add two new dramas, and hold four returning series for midseason.

MIDSEASON:  On the bench for 2017 are "Reign," "The Originals," "iZombie," "The 100" and "Riverdale," a live-action version of the Archie Comics characters: Archie, Betty, Jughead and Josie.
