Ali Adler Leaves Supergirl as Showrunner

Supergirl will start shooting it’s third season next month in Vancouver, but they will be doing it without one of their creators on the show. Ali Adler, who has been the showrunner for the The CW series for two seasons, has stepped down from her duties before the third season starts.

According to Deadline, Ali Adler has given up her title as showrunner for the series and will instead be a creative consultant on the show. It was revealed that she was out of the series when her name was taken out of the producing credits through a description of the third season. However, Adler will still be a part of The CW for the upcoming season as she is already at work on the new Dynasty reboot that’s coming this fall as a consultant. Her new role is part of her overall deal with CBS Studios. Taking her place on Supergirl will be Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner, according to the outlet.

Greg Berlanti, and Andrew Kreisberg still servie as executive producers on the show with Sarah Schechter. All the superhero shows will be starting production in Vancouver next month, which means we may likely see footage of the new seasons during San Diego Comic Con in July. Supergirl may feel different with Ali Adler gone from her duties as showrunner, but at least she will still be involved with the show at a limited capacity. What do you guys think?
