Supergirl ends with season 6

SupergirlSupergirl will soar one last time.

According to a report by Variety, the CW and producers Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions have officially announced that the sixth season of Supergirl will be its last.

Supergirl originally premiered on CBS in October 15 before moving to the CW beginning with the second season. The fifth season finale just aired four months ago.

Production on the sixth season is scheduled to start later this month and the writers have reportedly already started developing the storylines for the last 20 episodes.

The show has been an integral part of the CW’s Arrowverse and will be the second series to leave the crossover universe with Arrow concluding its run earlier this year. The remaining shows that will continue beyond Supergirl are The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, Batwoman, and the upcoming Superman and Lois.

Supergirl herself Melissa Benoist shared a heartfelt message about the show’s end in a post on Instagram, saying:

“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.”

Supergirl stars Benoist, 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.

Supergirl season six is set to premiere on the CW sometime in 2021.
