The 27-year-old star of the show took to social media to react to the full season order.
“It really is a great day when you find out you get to wear a cape/fly around/and kick some ass for a full season yay @supergirlcbs!!!!” she tweeted.
Meanwhile, Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter took to Instagram to congratulate her: “Had a second to get caught up on my non #jessicajones TV and wanted to give a special shout out to my girl @melissabenoist ! I’ve been a big fan of hers since she first landed in LA. I met her early on when I was casting a show that I was producing and it was clear even then, fresh off the boat, that she was poised to be a big star. I’m so proud and happy for her for landing a part that she totally shines in. Funny, strong, adorable, and radiant! Congrats fellow superhero lady! Much love
Melissa loved that, and wrote back, “Just made my day @Krystenritter sending love right back to you. Binged #JessicaJones and it’s insanely badass & you are way too talented”
