Hey Mustangs and superhero fans!

Sad to say but after five seasons the upcoming season of “Supergirl,” which will air next year on The CW Network, will be the last. The first season premiered in October 2015 and it received high ratings. Every year since then, they have been releasing a new season.

Like other shows, the production of the upcoming season of “Supergirl” has been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

They will also have to work with the pregnancy of the leading star, Melissa Benoist, to begin the show without her. It is rumored that she will be joining at a later date.

Despite all of the delays, the production wants all the cast to be complete because this will allow the creative team to bring the original end to the story.

After the surprising news, Melissa Benoist released a heartfelt statement on Instagram, “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.”

I found two girls who are die-hard fans of the series, “Supergirl.” I asked them what they think about ending the series and what to expect from it.

“I feel very sad about this announcement. Honestly, I want more episodes and seasons to come. I’m greatly saddened about this, but also very grateful for having witnessed this one of a kind series,” Senior Joane Eugenio said.

“I expect a balanced amount of drama and action scenes from its final season. I feel that there will be a death of either protagonists or antagonists. This series highlights a very good example of heroism. It taught me that in my small ways, I can be of help to others,” she added.

Another senior, Marielle Gonzales said, “I am hugely disappointed with this news. Not because the show is not good, but because I am looking forward to more of it.”

Marielle also stated the impact of the series it had on her, “This show has taught deep values that the people of this age need to learn. It proved that gender is not a basis for doing good acts to your fellowmen. It taught me that caring for others and being kind are life values that I should always carry.” Both of them will surely miss watching the show after the final season.

The final season, which will have twenty episodes, will be released in late 2021.
