Today, The CW announced that its ‘Arrow’ spinoff ‘Supergirl’ will finish with the sixth season.
Currently, the sixth season is expected to return to production near the end of this month. However, the final season of ‘Supergirl’ will not arrive with The CW’s “fall” schedule; it will become part of the midseason 2021 scheduling.
“To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement,” star Melissa Benoist noted on social media. “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.”
