Supergirl is getting ready to take one last flight on The CW.
The CW, along with Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions, announced late Tuesday night that the upcoming sixth season of the Arrowverse drama will be the last. Supergirl will be the second show from the Arrowverse to end following Arrow wrapping up its eight-season run last year.
Deadline is reporting that production on the final season is set to start filming in Vancouver next week after it was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. Melissa Benoist, who plays Supergirl herself, the producers, the studio, and the network all came to a mutual decision to end the show following the delays and struggling ratings.
The series will conclude with a longer sixth season, which is expected to contain 20 episodes.
Supergirl originally made its debut on CBS in 2015 before moving to The CW for Season 2 in October 2016. Season 5 of the show left off with Supergirl facing both new and old threats to National City, including the shocking return of Lex Luthor, who has plans to use Supergirl’s best friend, Lena, in his plot for world domination.
