“Supergirl” is arriving on Netflix this coming weekend!
Season 1 of the CBS-turned-CW series will hit the streaming service on Saturday, Sept. 10. That gives viewers exactly one month to binge-watch the first 20 episodes of the series before Kara (Melissa Benoist) and her friends return for Season 2 in October.
The freshman run of “Supergirl” premiered on Oct. 26, 2015 and concluded on April 18 this year. Season 1 told the story of Kara, a.k.a. Supergirl, as a Kryptonian refugee who started to embrace her powers and become the hero that she was always wanted to be. Week after week, Kara juggled her life as an employee of CatCo Worldwide Media and an agent of D.E.O., whose main goal is to protect the Earth from any extra-terrestrial threat. Kara’s main antagonist in the installment was his uncle Non (Chris Vance), who vowed to eliminate human life on Earth and make it like the Kryptonians’ doomed home planet, Krypton.
“Supergirl” fans will need a Netflix subscription in order to watch Season 1. New users can try the service for free for one month and watch the episodes anytime on their laptop, TV, smart phone or tablet. After that, package prices start at $8.99 a month and go up to $14.99 a month.
For those who don’t have Netflix subscription, the complete Season 1 is also available for purchase on DVD and Blu-ray. The set, which comes with English SDH, Spanish and French subtitles, features some bonus content like the show’s 2015 Comic-Con panel, deleted scenes and gag reel.
The CW is also airing two episodes of the show’s first season every Monday night from 8 to 10 p.m. The rerun started on Aug. 1 and will end on Oct. 3 — just a week before the Season 2 premiere, which is set to air on Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.
