Supergirl To End With Season 6

The upcoming sixth season of the CW’s Supergirl, which will debut in 2021, will be its last as it was recently announced that the series would officially be ending its run.

The series, which originated on CBS, was cancelled after one season on that network and headed to The CW, where Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) became a part of the “Arrowverse,” a shared universe fronted by hit series Arrow and The Flash. Last season, Arrow ended, marking the first time an Arrowverse show had stepped away, but with the introduction of Superman and Lois next season, the overall number of series will remain the same from 2020 to 2021.

Supergirl will have a 20-episode final season which The CW says will begin production later this month. There has been no official statement so far from Berlanti Productions, who oversee not only the Arrowverse shows but a number of other DC projects, including DC Universe/HBO Max shows like Doom Patrol and Green Lantern.

Supergirl star Melissa Benoist released a brief statement on her personal Instagram page.

“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,” Benoist wrote. “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.”

She added, “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.”

She ended her message with “el mayarah”, Kryptonian for “stronger together.”
