There’s some big news coming out of the world of Supergirl today — season 6 is going to be the final one on The CW.
Are we surprised? In some ways certainly, but in others not so much. Given that there are so many shows within the greater Arrowverse at the network right now, it makes sense for some of the older ones to conclude. Supergirl is one of the pricier series, and its live ratings have taken a tumble the past two years. Yet, the character is one of the most popular ones on the network, and star Melissa Benoist has done a tremendous job bringing Kara to life.
Sometimes, there is no single reason as to why a show is ending — sometimes it’s just time and a mutual decision between a number of parties. No matter this time, at least the writers have a full season and an opportunity to go out on largely their own terms.
In a new post on Instagram, Benoist reacted to the news by explaining exactly what Supergirl as a series, and as a role, has meant to her over the years. She’s gotten a chance to work with fantastic people, while inspiring many viewers along the way. Kara is a symbol of hope, and someone who has been able to fight through and overcome big challenges. Melissa promises that the series has some big things planned before it says goodbye, and we’re curious to learn what those are.

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
