After having a successful six-year run on The CW, DC Comics’ ‘Supergirl’ has officially wrapped up production. Season 6 will be its last and final season which premiered on March 30 this year.
Actress Melissa Benoist who plays the lead role of Kara Zor-El / Kara Danvers / Supergirl, took to Instagram to share the news.
She shared a photo of herself, posing alongside co-stars Chyler Leigh (Alexandra “Alex” Danvers / Sentinel) and David Harewood (J’onn J’onzz / Martian Manhunter).
The 32-year-old star wrote, “thank you for an incredible 6 years—the cast who became family, everyone who worked on the show, all of you who watched us week after week ♥️♥️♥️ that’s a wrap on @supergirlcw”

Benoist also took to her Instagram Stories to share a masked-up selfie of herself in her costume. She captioned it as, “Saying goodbye to this glyph.”
In September last year, a spokesperson for The CW told People Magazine that the show would come to an end after season 6.
During that time, Benoist spoke about how “humbled” and “speechless” she was by the “incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world.”
About her character of Kara Zor-El, she wrote on Instagram, “To say it has been an honour portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement.”
Previously, Benoist told Entertainment Weekly, “We’re so proud of everything we’ve been able to accomplish in the last five, almost six years. We’ve gone through so much on this show, and I think creatively we were all able to step back and say that we’re really proud of everything we’ve done and it felt like the right time.”
She also added that she was happy and felt “fantastic” about where her character ended in the final season. “They pitched it to me because they wanted to know if I had any input as to where I wanted to see Kara ending up at the end of the series,” she recalled.
A spin-off named Superman & Lois premiered on The CW this February.
