The CW, Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions have announced that the drama series Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist, will conclude with the upcoming sixth season, set to premiere on The CW in 2021.
This will be the second series from the CW’s DC Arrowverse to come to an end following Arrow, after a eight-year run last season.
Production on the 2020-21 series was already delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. Additionally, the series had been targeting a later start of production to accommodate the pregnancy of star Melissa Benoist.
Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist, debuted in October 2015 on CBS before joining The CW for Season 2 in October 2016. The most recent Season 5 also starred Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair and David Harewood.
