Another superhero will be hanging up their cape. Supergirl will be ending on the CW after six seasons. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the final season of Supergirl will consist of 20 episodes. The show will not be a part of the “Fall schedule” for the CW in January. It will air during the midseason in 2021. Melissa Benoist, who plays Kara Danvers/Supergirl, wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram about the announcement. You can check it out 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.”
In 2015, Supergirl made its debut on CBS. After the success of the first season, the production and show moved to its new home, moving from CBS and Los Angeles to the CW and Vancouver, where it spent the last four seasons. Supergirl originally wasn’t a part of the Arrowverse until the Flash came to National City in a crossover in its second season.
Supergirl becomes the second DC property to leave the CW. Arrow wrapped up its final season earlier this year after eight seasons. The Green Arrow kicked off the Arrowverse that allowed superheroes like Supergirl and the Flash to get their own shows.
