When will 'Supergirl' Season 6 return? Here's what we hope to see when Kara Danvers takes to the skies again
As Season 5 was forcibly cut short due to the coronavirus, there are a lot of things that Season 6 still has to address
Sorry folks, it's going to be a LONG wait till we see our woman of steel take to the skies again. Due to the coronavirus delays, as well as Melissa Benoist's pregnancy, the show will return for the sixth and final season by the middle of next year, rather than its usual October slot.
Benoist announced that Season 6 would be the last season, in an emotional Instagram post. She wrote, “To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement. Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless. She’s had that impact on me, too. She’s taught me the strength I didn’t know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we’re united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better. She has changed my life for the better, and I’m forever grateful.”
She further wrote, “I’m so excited that we get to plan our conclusion to this amazing journey and I cannot wait for you to see what we have in store. I promise we’re going to make it one helluva final season.”
Where we left off
Season 5 wrapped up with a bang and a promise for a more dramatic Season 6. There was a lot that happened, including 'Crisis On Infinite Earths', the Earth's annihilation and rebirth, Lex Luthor's (Jon Cryer) resurrection and Leviathan finally getting taken down in the finale. After nursing her revenge against Kara (Melissa Benoist) for hiding her secret identity, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) finally decided to drop her grudges and joined hands with her. Brainy sacrificed himself to save his friends, but there's a chance that he can still survive it, provided Nia (Nicole Maines) gets to him in time. However, at the end of Season 5, we see that Lex has found a way to be more diabolic and this time, he has his mother with him.
What we'd like to see
As Season 5 was forcibly cut short due to the coronavirus, there are a lot of things that Season 6 still has to address. What do Lex and his mother, Lillian Luthor, have planned for Supergirl and team, now that they've harnessed the power of Leviathan? Secondly, is Brainy alive and will he and Nia reconcile? In all probability, the first half of Season 6 will be spent in thwarting Lex's plans and putting an end to his evil ways for good. However, there will be more threatening villains around the corner too. There have been hints that there might be a 'Batwoman' crossover too. Another question is, will the romance between Kara and William Dey (Staz Nair) finally bloom or will it be struck down, as fans ardently hope. Or, could we hope for Mon-El (Chris Woods) to return?
When is it returning
'Supergirl' is expected to return in the middle of 2021 to The CW. This is the final season of the show.
