Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl will end with season 6 at The CW.
The final season is set to feature 20 episodes and the writers room has already begun developing the storyline. Supergirl follows Arrow as the second Arrowverse series to come to an end. Melissa Benoist shared an official statement on the series’ end on Instagram which you can read below.
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. ♥️ el mayarah ?
