Superhero show Supergirl will end its run next week after six whole seasons. It started in 2015 on CBS with Melissa Benoist playing the titular role. The show was moved to The CW for its second season and it remained there ever since.
Although the viewership was constantly dropping with every new season, the show still made a quite impressive six-season run. In its second season, the show introduced Arrowverse’s Superman played by Tyler Hoechlin who is now leading the spin-off show – Superman and Lois. Also, in season 4, the show introduced the original character Nia Nal/Dreamer played by Nicole Maines, who later wrote the story for the characters’ debut in comic books.
Supergirl was part of several Arrowverse crossover events, with the first one being World’s Finest, a one-episode event in the show’s first season where Grant Gustin as Barry Allen made a special guest appearance. That was still while the show was airing on CBS, before anyone knew Supergirl is part of the Arrowverse as well.
Melissa Benoist played the role of Kara Danvers/Supergirl, and she recently revealed she’s not against putting the cape again if she gets the chance. The show also starred Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, Calista Flockhart, Chris Wood, Floriana Lima, Katie McGrath, Odette Annable, Jesse Rath, Sam Witwer, Nicole Maines, April Parker Jones, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair, LaMonica Garrett, Peta Sergeant, and Jon Cryer in the role of Lex Luthor.
During the last six seasons, the show aired 124 episodes, excluding two episodes that are left. A two-part series finale will air on November 9, ending the show that first kicked off on October 26, 2015.
