Fans will have to say their goodbyes to Supergirl, as the show is set to end with the upcoming season 6. Show network CW, producers Warner Bros. Television Berlanti Productions declared that Supergirl is ending with the the sixth and final season of the show.
The news comes four months after the end of season 5 of the show, now Supergirl is set to begin production of the concluding season 6 by the end of this month, and scriptwriters are already in works of writing the plot for the final 20 episodes which was hinted with show-writer Jessica Queller’s farewell tweet.
Supergirl’s ending was also addressed by the DC hero herself- Melissa Benoist on her Instagram, where she humbly thanked her character for empowering her in real life.
“She’s (Supergirl) 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.” Thanked Benoist in her caption. “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.”
Why Is Supergirl Ending?
The alleged reason behind the concluding Supergirl Season 6 will come-off quiet sad to series fans. Production of almost all coming broadcast TV series was halted due to the pandemic. Now that things have calmed down, most of the production in the industry has resumed but Supergirl’s working schedule was further delayed in consideration of the series super-lead Melissa Benoist’s announcement of her pregnancy back in March. The delay was also furthered by the agreement that is being sorted out with the local unions of Vancouver where the show will start its shoot, about the compliance with SAG’s testing procedures.
But the pressure of delay isn’t the only rumoured reason. Supergirl is going downhill when it comes to show ratings, it’s IMDB ratings stand at an average of 6.3 and Rotten Tomatoes audience score at 51%. This is something that definitely could be in the mind of Supergirl creators, Marv Wolfman and Jerry Ordway.
