Well, that certainly didn’t take long…

Mere days ago it was revealed that SUPERGIRL, the DC television series that began its life on CBS, was jumping to The CW Network. On The CW, it would be part of a slate that includes several other DC shows, which are all produced by the same man: Greg Berlanti (Pictured above). Now comes word that there’s already a special crossover event planned for this December!

In a statement during the unveiling of their fall slate, CW president Mark Pedowitz mentioned the addition of SUPERGIRL to its growing roster of programs:

“We have four terrific additions to our schedule next season, and five great anchors at eight o’clock, every night of the week. The CW has become known as the home of the best, most creative series on broadcast television, in a range of genres that appeal to the most balanced audience of any broadcast network, and the series we have for next season will absolutely continue to fit that bill. We are thrilled to have ‘Supergirl’ on The CW this fall, joining our popular roster of DC heroes. Plus, we have three new series lined up for next season that perfectly fit our brand, with the smart, charming comedy ‘No Tomorrow’ and the high-stakes drama ‘Frequency’ this fall, and the subversive take on small-town life, ‘Riverdale,’ at midseason. With these four new series added to the strongest, most competitive schedule we have ever had, The CW just keeps getting better.”

Pedowitz then went on to reveal that SUPERGIRL will air Monday nights at 8PM, and then dropped the big bopper:

In December, there’s already a crossover event in the works that would include SUPERGIRL, THE FLASH, ARROW, and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW.

Pretty huge news if you’re a fan of Berlanti’s work with DC on TV.

Also, just for grins and giggles, here’s the official description for SUPERGIRL that that it’s a CW show:

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Superman?’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents? help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara?s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (?The Flash,? ?Arrow?), Ali Adler (?The New Normal,? ?Glee?), Andrew Kreisberg (?The Flash,? ?Arrow?) and Sarah Schechter (?Arrow,? ?The Flash?)
