Supergirl is taking her final flight. The CW, Warner Bros. TV, and Berlanti Productions have announced the superhero series starring mom-to-be Melissa Benoist as Clark Kent’s super cousin will be coming to an end after its upcoming sixth season, due to premiere sometime on The CW in 2021. Supergirl will mark the second series in The CW’s Arrowverse to end, following flagship series Arrow, which concluded last January after eight seasons.

Like many series and movies, Supergirl’s production halted due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and the upcoming final season will be delayed even more as Benoist and husband Christopher Wood are expecting soon. According to Deadline, filming is slated to begin in Vancouver next week, pending a deal with local unions to comply with SAG’s testing guidelines. The series would be filming around Benoist, who would join production later.

The decision to end the show was due to the delays and the show’s downward rating trajectory, Deadline reports. Producers, the studio, network, and Benoist came to a decision that it was better to end the show with a longer final season, which will consist of 20 episodes.

Although Supergirl will be flying away soon, its spin-off, Superman and Lois, starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch reprising their roles from Supergirl, is slated to premiere sometime in January 2021 on The CW, airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT following The Flash.
