The Arrowverse on The CW is poised to say goodbye to another member, as Supergirl is ready to fly off into the sunset.
The sixth season scheduled for next year will be the last for Supergirl. While this news might be disappointing for Supergirl fans, the final season will have an extended 20 episode run and should allow the writers to craft a satisfying conclusion. Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist had this to say about the show wrapping up.
I found the news surprising when I first heard about it, but six seasons is a very solid run for any show even if Supergirl didn’t last eight seasons like Arrow did.
With Stargirl making the permanent move over to The CW and the upcoming Superman & Lois series, there are still plenty of shows that occupy a similar vibe. Melissa Benoist really did make for a great Supergirl.
