                            'Supergirl' Season 6: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about The CW show
Supergirl (The CW)

'Supergirl' Season 5 has wrapped up with a bang and a promise for a more hellish Season 6. A lot went down in this season: 'Crisis On Infinite Earths', the Earth's annihilation and rebirth, Lex Luthor's (Jon Cryer) resurrection and Leviathan getting taken down in the finale. After simmering with anger about Kara (Melissa Benoist) hiding her secret identity, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) realized the error of her ways 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. 

Season 5 had to be forcibly cut short and the finale had to be rewritten due to the coronavirus pandemic. And, it is going to be a long wait before Season 6 gets to see the light of day.

Release date 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic as well as Benoist's pregnancy, Season 6 of 'Supergirl' will only return in mid-2021, unlike most of the other shows of The CW that are returning in January 2021.


There's a lot in store for Season 6, action, drama, romance and a whole lot of fun (we hope). Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) is back in the game and is ready to take down her brother Lex. However, it won't be easy, this time. 

For starters, what do Lex and his mother, Lillian Luthor, have planned for Supergirl and team, now that they've harnessed the power of Leviathan? Secondly, the question on everyone's lips: Is Brainy alive? And, will he and Nia (Nicole Maines) get back together? We sure hope so. In all probability, the first half of Season 6 will be spent in thwarting Lex Luthor's plans and putting an end to his evil ways for good. Yet, there will be more threatening villains to come their way. 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?


Melissa Benoist as Supergirl (CW)

A majority of the series regulars are expected to return for Season 6. Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, David Harewood as J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter and Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Nicole Maines as Nia Nal. Hopefully, Jesse Rath as Brainy will return too, along with Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor.


Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner are expected to return as the series' executive producers and co-showrunners. Ali Adler will remain an executive consultant for the series. 


The coronavirus pandemic changed the fate of Lex Luthor's fate as well. In an episode of 'Couch Surfing', Jon Cryer said the whole episode was rewritten and that Lex did not get defeated as planned.

"The Supergirl folks have talked to me because we couldn't shoot our last episode. We had shot some of the last episode, and they're gonna use some of that footage, but they're writing a whole bunch of new stuff around it," Cryer said.

"Which is interesting because the way my character was thwarted now doesn't happen anymore. So I was like, 'Oh, did I not get defeated? Wait a minute, I like this!'" he added, "Supervillains, we relish our chance to actually not be defeated every now and then."
