If things had gone according to plan, we might not have seen Supergirl until Superman And Lois finished its first season run — possibly late spring, early summer, But fortunately, thanks to a COVID scare on the Superman set (I mean, it sucks to be whoever that was, but…), we get Supergirl early! A few episodes from the sixth season will debut in March and April to fill the gap in production from the other show.
Last week, The CW announced its spring/summer schedule, revealing when all of its remaining shows would be starting their latest seasons…with the exception of Supergirl. There was no mention of it whatsoever, and the furthest date listed was June 14, so we assumed we wouldn’t be seeing it for a while.
Every season, the costume department of The CW’s Supergirl makes a few new tweaks to Supergirl’s costume. Star Melissa Benoist posted their latest design to her Instagram account today. Have a peek…notice anything different?
No more secret identity! That’s what Kara Zor-El, AKA Supergirl, seems to be saying in the voiceover of this new Season 3 Supergirl promo. From now on it’s Supergirl 24/7 — no more running around in fake glasses pretending to be weak and having to mysteriously disappear whenever alien invaders arrive. What’s the point, really?
Cat Grant, merciless CEO of CatCo Media and frenemy of Kara Danvers, was one of the best things about Supergirl Season One. Then the series moved to Vancouver to save money, and Grant’s actress Calista Flockhart didn’t want to follow. Cat would appear in the first two episodes of Season Two, then disappear.
Following a pilot earlier in the year, CBS has finally decided to commission a season of Supergirl. According to Variety, the network has ordered a full season as part of its schedule for 2015/2016 and is expected to officially announce the show in the next few days.
Per Deadline.com, the role of Supergirl has been cast for the upcoming CBS TV pilot of the same name. Melissa Benoist (Glee, Whiplash) is set to don the red cape for the show.
