The CW and producers Warner Bros TV and Berlanti Productions have announced that Supergirl will be ending with season 6. This drama series starring Melissa Benoist is set to premiere in 2021 on The CW. Supergirl will become the second series from the CW’s DC Arrowverse that will be ending, following Arrow.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, production on all 2020-21 broadcast series was delayed. The production of the sixth season of Supergirl is targeting a later start. The reason behind this is that they want to accommodate the pregnancy of star Benoist.
The delays that happened in between and due to Supergirl’s ratings falling considerably, the decision was taken by the producers, the studio, the network, and Benoist to end the show with six seasons.
The CW has been retiring some established series, including Arrow, Supernatural, and The 100 this past season. The network although gives a proper farewell to every series by announcing their final seasons ahead of time. The viewers should be prepared as more shows can be announced coming to an end.
