In news that is sure to put another damper on your day, we will soon be saying goodbye to Supergirl. The CW, Warner Bros. Television, and Berlanti Productions revealed in a joint announcement Tuesday that the series, which stars Melissa Benoist as the titular superhero, will come to an end after Season 6. Supergirl‘s creative team is already hard at work on fleshing out the storylines for the show’s remaining 20 episodes — which premiere in 2021 — and production is set to begin later this month.
The final season will be something of a reset for the series, with National City being relocated to Earth-38 following the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths. This strange new reality finds history rewritten to position Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) as a hero and owner of the DEO, making him the Super Friends’ new boss! But with Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) and Kara (Benoist) making amends, our heroes will have at least have one key ally on their side.
Supergirl originally debuted on CBS in 2015 before joining The CW for Season 2 in 2016. In addition to Benoist, the series also stars Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair, and David Harewood. Special guest star Jon Cryer joined the series in Season 4 as Lex Luther.
Supergirl returns with its sixth and final season in 2021.
