The sixth and final season of the American television series Supergirl, which is based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El / Supergirl and premiered on The CW on March 30, 2021, and consisted of 20 episodes. It is set in the Arrowverse, sharing continuity with the other television series of the universe. The season is produced by Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment, with Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner serving as showrunners.
Supergirl - Season 6
The season was ordered in January 2020, with filming beginning that October. Melissa Benoist stars as Kara, with principal cast members Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair and David Harewood also returning from previous seasons. They are joined by new cast member Peta Sergeant. Former series regulars Andrea Brooks, Mehcad Brooks, Calista Flockhart, Jeremy Jordan, and Chris Wood all return for guest appearances, with the latter four returning in the series finale.
In January 2020, The CW renewed the series for a sixth season. Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner return as the showrunners. In September 2020, it was announced that it would be the final season, with a 20 episode order.
The twelfth episode was written by Azie Tesfai and J. Holtham. This marks the first time in the Arrowverse that an actor (Tesfai) wrote an episode. Like previous seasons, the sixth season too is inspired by political and social issues in the real world, especially in its second half. Queller said the theme of the season would be "power, and the abuse of power, and the limits of powers, and from without and within". Rovner said the Black Lives Matter movement was another influence on the season. Melissa Benoist, who portrays Kara Danvers / Supergirl, said the season serves as a "self-exploration" for her character, "looking in the mirror and [contemplating] what her power means because it's almost limitless and it makes her so strong on Earth".
Main cast members Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair and David Harewood will return as Kara Danvers / Supergirl, Alex Danvers, Lena Luthor, Querl Dox / Brainiac 5, Nia Nal / Dreamer, Kelly Olsen, Andrea Rojas, William Dey, and J'onn J'onzz / Martian Manhunter. In December 2020, David Ramsey was revealed to be reprising his Arrow role of John Diggle in addition to directing at least one episode in the season. In March 2021, Claude Knowlton and Jason Behr joined the cast in undisclosed recurring roles for the sixth season. Knowlton's role turned out be Silas while Behr's role turned out to be Zor-El who was previously portrayed by Robert Gant in season one and season two. In the April 13 episode, Peta Sergeant debuted as series regular and fifth-dimensional imp Nyxly, who would serve as the season's primary villain.
Filming began on October 13, 2020. It was initially scheduled to begin after Benoist returned from maternity leave, but was later rescheduled to begin on September 28, 2020. However, by September 29, filming was indefinitely delayed, because of delays in receiving COVID-19 test results for the cast and crew, before beginning in October. The early filming of the season worked around Benoist's absence until she returned to work in January 2021. Filming concluded on August 6, 2021.
The sixth season was originally scheduled to premiere in mid-2021. However, Superman & Lois went on hiatus due to a production delay caused by COVID-19, so the season premiered early on March 30, 2021. The season continued on August 24, 2021, after Superman & Lois finished its first season.
In Supergirl's season 6 premiere, Kara (Melissa Benoist) sacrificed her life two times. First, she lured a super-powered Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) to the Fortress and allowed him to kill her so that the Super Friends had time to undo his brainwashing scheme. Thankfully, Lena used the anti-Kryptonite suit and Fortress technology to revive Kara, and the rest of the team showed up for round two against the egomaniac. Unfortunately, that didn't go as planned either. Sure, Alex managed to depower Lex, but not before he grabbed the Phantom Zone projector and sent Kara to the desolate Kryptonian prison without her powers or a means to escape. Yikes!
MELISSA BENOIST: There were so many iterations of how season 5 was gonna end and season 6 was going to go because of the pregnancy and my maternity leave, and because of the pandemic. I know they changed it quite a few times. So, I don't remember to be honest. [Laughs] It feels like ages ago. I was always going to be sent to the Phantom Zone, but I don't think I was ever going to stay as long as I did, for the amount of episodes that I'm there.
Right. We've explored her vulnerabilities before on the show, but never to the depth that we are this season. I think it will be really different for people to see. It's a very different side of Kara that we will see in the Phantom Zone, and it's not easy. The things that she's facing and the trauma that she endures in the Phantom Zone are not something she'll recover from easily.
Kara is pretty isolated here. What was it like going through this storyline that kept you separated from the rest of the characters you're used to interacting with, especially in the final season?
As always, Melissa Benoist continued this season to prove why she was born to be Supergirl. Despite being a very bad season, Supergirl always stood out. When she was trapped in the Phantom Zone is when she really began to shine. She showed just how full of hope she is even when it seems like all hope is lost. Also being powerful surrounded by Phantoms developed her character incredibly. I do wish she had told the world she was Supergirl earlier like she did in the finale. I feel like that was a massive twist that would have been entertaining to watch.
Touching on Kara unmasking to the world, Cat Grant buying CatCo is definitely something we should have seen earlier in the season. The finale showed just how much potential this season genuinely had but never capitalized on most of the opportunities presented to them.
In a nutshell, everything about the connection of this season was poorly done. It was not entertaining despite the odd episode here and then, it was dreadful. It ran its course and needed to end. It's a shame because they had the cast nailed, they just couldn't capitalize on the potential the show always had.
Supergirl Season 6 will have aired seven episodes, and the show is already set to go on hiatus. The CW is airing the midseason finale of the DC Comics show on Tuesday May 11, after which time fans have a while to wait before Melissa Benoist and the rest of the cast return for the last-ever episodes of the show.
After the Supergirl midseason finale airs, The CW will have that episode and the previous four instalments available to watch online throughout the summer.
