The upcoming sixth season of the comic book adaptation ‘Supergirl’ is the last. The American channel The CW announced this on Tuesday.

“To say it was an honor to portray this iconic character is an understatement”

Shooting for the fifth season of Supergirl was shut down in March, so the last episode of that series was never made. The production of the sixth season was already unsettled, because lead actor Melissa Benoist announced in March that she is expecting her first child. According to Deadline , the shooting will start early next month in Vancouver, but the scenes will first be recorded without Melissa so that she only has to report on set later.

On Instagram, the actress announced on Tuesday that she is proud of the impact the series has had on young girls. “To say it was an honor to portray this iconic character is an understatement.

Supergirl , Superman ‘s niece who has special abilities like him, also had an impact on Melissa herself. “She showed me a strength that I never knew I had. She taught me to find hope in the darkest times,” said the actress, who revealed at the end of 2019 that she had been victimized in a previous relationship. of domestic violence. “She made my life better, and I’m eternally grateful for that.”
