Supergirl showrunners reveal the ties to Crisis On Infinite Earths in the upcoming season of the show.
There’s still a few months to go until Crisis On Infinite Earths shakes the Arrowverse to its core, but the Supergirl showrunners are already teasing how the series will be more affected by the monumental crossover than ever before. Since Supergirl exists on her own Earth, her roles in the crossovers haven’t been as prominent – until now. Aside from her own new villain to contend with, Supergirl’s Earth will be affected by the Monitor and the Anti-Monitor’s actions in Crisis On Infinite Earths.
Ever since Supergirl officially became part of the Arrowverse, fans have been theorizing and speculating how the girl of steel could permanently cross over into the main continuity. And since Crisis On Infinite Earths is potentially a reality altering event like it was in the comics of the same name, the fallout the showrunners discuss in an interview with IGN could mean the Supergirl cast struggle to deal with their new reality. Check out the interview with showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner regarding Crisis On Infinite Earths below.
Robert Rovner: “We’re teeing up Crisis in our way, which is a little bit different from the way Arrow and The Flash are doing it. But it’s all interconnected, and the Monitor will be a part of that storytelling.”
Jessica Queller: “In general, it has more impact than our crossovers usually do. It filters into the rest of our season where normally the crossovers are standalone.”
Robert Rovner: “The world will be shaken up and there will be fallout, post-Crisis.“

Here is the official synopsis for Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl:
Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, (Melissa Benoist). Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to Earth where she was raised by a foster family. Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, Kara was living in National City and still concealing her powers, when a plane crash threatened Alex’s life and Kara took to the sky to save her. Now, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats. As Kara struggles to navigate her relationships and her burgeoning life as a reporter, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl.
