Supergirl Wraps Things Up with Season 6
Up, up, and away. Supergirl is wrapping things up as season six will be the last. The decision was a joint one between the CW, Warner Bros. Television, and Berlanti Productions. Production for the sixth season is to begin later this month with the writers working on the final 20 episodes. The sixth and final season is set to premiere in 2021.
Star Melissa Benoist said on social media:
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. She’s had that impact on me, too. She’s taught me 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 to 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.
The CW’s DCTV Universe has been shaking things up recently with the end of Arrow and now Supergirl. That leaves The Flash which is running into its seventh season, Legends of Tomorrow whose adventures continue in its sixth seasons, and Black Lightning. Batwoman will see a new lead in its second season and the newest series, Superman and Lois, will also debut in 2021.
