Why is this so difficult?!

I just finished the first season of Supergirl on Netflix yesterday, only to find that they don't have season two up yet. I'm aware it's a corny, iffy show, but I just am in the frame of mind for lighthearted, corny shows at the moment. So, I thought I'd Google to see when Netflix might be getting season two.

Well, it turns out that season two aired on The CW in America, rather than CBS, which is what season one aired on. Which explains why when I went to Global, which showed season one here in Canada, they sent me to Showcase, whom, I assumed picked it up after CBS/Global dropped it? I don't know. Anyway, they have the last three episodes of the season to stream, which doesn't help me. And apparently CW has a deal with Netflix to get their shows up eight days after airing, but in Canada, the other DC CW shows (Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, etc) are on CraveTV, a different streaming app to which I am not subscribed because they don't have enough content I want to watch to make it worth my while and also I can't get it on my TV without a third party device that would cost me about $200, and, since Mom and I watch a lot of stuff together and you can't sync an iPad to another automatically, it's hard to find a way for us both to watch something if we can't get it up on the TV. But a quick browse suggests that they don't have Supergirl on there either, anyway.

So the question remains, will Canadian Netflix get season two? And when? Murdoch Mysteries switched channels halfway through its run and the first several seasons have disappeared from existence because no one seems to have the rights to them anymore, is this going to be another sort of limbo thing?

I can't find out about Supergirl because when I Google, all the results tell me it's up on the American Netflix. And I can't get American Netflix because licensing is stupid.

This could, of course, probably be solved in a dodgy manner, but I do my best to get content as legally as possible. I suppose there's always iTunes.
