Supergirl is taking its last flight this spring. The CW drama will return for its sixth and final season on Tuesday, March 30 (9 / 8c), TVLine has learned.
Supergirl will take control of the time slot currently occupied by Superman and Lois, which will be on a short hiatus due to a COVID-related production outage that occurred earlier this summer. Superman and Lois will return with the rest of its first season on Tuesday, May 18 at 9:00 p.m. Supergirl will then return to complete her final season sometime this summer (exact date TBD).
“To say that it has been an honor to portray this iconic character would be an understatement,” Supergirl Star Melissa Benoist said when news broke of the final season in 2020. “Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me speechless and humbled. She has had that impact on me too. She has taught me a strength that I did not know I had, to find hope in the darkest places and that we are stronger when we are united. What she represents pushes us all to be better. She has changed my life for the better and I will be forever grateful. “
