Melissa Benoist Reacts to Supergirl Ending, Promises 'One Helluva' Sendoff

Supergirl to End with Sixth and Final Season

The final season is set to begin production later in September and writers are already working on the last episodes of the show.

Deadline's Nellie Andreeva reports the decision to cancel the show came after "producers the studio, the network and Benoist came to a decision that it was better to end the show with a longer final season". Supergirl is the latest longrunning series from CW's Arrowverse to come to an end following the flagship show (Arrow) concluding previous year. Season 6 will consist of 20 episodes, and it's slated to premiere sometime in 2021.

Benoist wrapped her series of Tweets by letting fans of the show know that she's looking forward to sharing the final season of Supergirl with viewers next year.

"She's had that impact on me, too", Benoist continued.


After Arrow, the first TV series ofArrowverse that we had to say goodbye to, another DC show and The CW has come to an end.

THR says that Berlanti Productions, which the producer runs with his production partner Sarah Schechter, now has ten shows on The CW: Stargirl (ported over from DC Universe), the reboot of Kung Fu, Batwoman, The Flash, Supergirl, Black Lightning, Legends of Tomorrow, Superman & Lois, All American, and teen uber-hit Riverdale.

Benosit added in her post: "I'm so excited that we get to plan our conclusion to this incredible journey, and I can not wait for you to see what we have in store". The most recent crossover, "Crisis on Infinite Earths", ended with all the Arrowverse shows - Supergirl, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, and Batwoman - being merged onto one Earth. They've also announced a Supergirl spinoff about Superman and Lois, starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, which is scheduled to debut in the near future.

What do you make of Supergirl's cancellation following Season 6? We're not sure whether the network cancelled Supergirl or if the showrunners chose to conclude the story themselves, but it has been confirmed that the final season will run for 20 episodes, with production set to commence in Vancouver, Canada, later this month.
