CBS's new hit Supergirl has just received a full season order.

The network announced that it has ordered seven more episodes of the show, bringing the total to 20 – a full season.

Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist, is pretty pumped.

"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," she tweeted out when the news broke.

The show has averaged 11.24 million viewers and a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo.

Benoist recently discussed how grateful she is for the opportunity to kick ass for a living.

“Everything is fun. Whether it’s some kind of action sequence, like I’m throwing a lot of punches and kicks, or I’m flying on the green screen,” she said. “There’s just something every day that I get to pause and be grateful for.”

You can catch new episodes of Supergirl on Monday night at 8pm ET on CBS.
