Supergirl will be coming for its sixth and final season in 2021. The CW network and producers Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions has just announced that the drama series starring Melissa Benoist will conclude with the upcoming sixth season. This is the second series from the CW’s DC Arrowverse to come to an end following Arrow, which ended in January this year.
Production on all 2020-21 broadcast series was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, Supergirl had been targeting a later start of production to accommodate the pregnancy of star Benoist. As per the reports, season 6 will start filming next month. Season 5 of the series ended earlier this year.
The series originally debuted on CBS back in Oct. 2015, before moving to CW from season 2 onward in October 2016.
Supergirl star Melissa Benoist who plays the titular role in the show addressed the announcement on twitter.
"To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement. Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless," said Benoist. "She’s had that impact on me, too. She’s taught me the strength I didn’t know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we’re united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better. She has changed my life for the better, and I’m forever grateful."
"I’m so excited that we get to plan our conclusion on this amazing journey, and I cannot wait for you to see what we have in store. I promise we’re going to make it one helluva final season."
Season 5 also starred Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair, and David Harewood, with special guest star Jon Cryer.
In Season 5, Supergirl faced threats, both new and ancient. National City became enthralled with addictive virtual reality technologies created by CatCo’s charming-but-secretive new owner Andrea Rojas (Gonzalo), which enable people to bury their heads in the proverbial sand. As Kara used the power of the press to try to expose the danger, she was forced to contend with challenges put up by rival reporter William Dey (Nair), renegade Martian Malefic J’onzz (Phil LaMarr), a shadowy organization called Leviathan, and the shocking return of Lex Luthor (Cryer) who, in addition to his plot for world domination, sought to claim the soul of Supergirl’s best friend — and his sister — Lena.
The newly announced “Superman and Lois” first season will premiere in January 2021 and we might see few cameos of Melissa Benoist as the show progresses.
