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. ♥️ el mayarah 💪 @supergirlcw

Supergirl originally was developed by CBS, where its first season aired. However, it did not do enough in the ratings department for the network to justify a renewal. The CW, which already had success with Arrow and The Flash, scooped up the rights for the second season. Since then, the show has managed to thrive as part of the ArrowVerse

This comes after Arrow concluded its run recently as well. The CW has had a huge amount of luck in recent years with its DC Comics shows. But with many of the long-running series coming to an end they will need to find replacements. Luckily, they have already started the process. Batwoman season 2 is on the way and next year will see the premiere of Superman & Lois. 

Other DC shows currently on the network include The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Stargirl and Black Lightning. 

It is expected that Supergirl season 6 will begin filming later this month in Canada. Production on all of the ArrowVerse shows was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. That led The CW to push almost its entire fall slate to 2021. The final season is expected to be 20 episodes. That will bring its total to 126 by the time the series finale arrives. Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair and David Harewood co-star, with Jon Cryer playing Lex Luther as of late. 

Supergirl is expected to return in early 2021.
