“Smallville” spin-off already greenlit?
A “Supergirl” spin-off? “Smallville” the launching pad for the character? Grandfather who? Tight tights cause what?
The Advertiser reports that “Laura Vandervoort, 22, is the granddaughter of Fred Sanger, a local hockey legend from Grand Falls-Windsor who went on to play Junior ‘A’ hockey with the Quebec Citadelles. She recently found out she would be starring in the show Supergirl, which is a spin-off from Smallville, the hit show that brings a new interpretation of the Superman myth.
Ms. Vandervoort’s character Kara (a.k.a. Supergirl) is Clark Kent’s strong-willed cousin from Krypton. She will first be introduced on Smallville before branching off onto her own show. ”
I don’t know where they got their information from, nothing has been announced regarding a “Supergirl” spin-off. Usually, in such cases, they wait to see whether the character is popular before considering a spin-off. Still, ya never know.
