Supergirl season 6 is not coming to The CW in spring 2021

Supergirl season 6 is on the minds of its fans but when is it actually arriving on The CW?

UPDATE: It has since been revealed that Supergirl season 6 will be premiering on Tuesday, March 30 to air its first seven episodes as Superman and Lois requires a production break. 

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Well, one thing it’s not unfortunately, is Supergirl season 6. But keep those nerves of steel on hand because the Girl of Steel will return soon.

The long-running Arrowverse show has been off-screens since its fifth season came to a premature end last May. Production was shut down before the season concluded due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

With things back up and running again, fans are wondering when the show will return to screens – especially as BatwomanThe Flash and Superman & Lois have either premiered or have scheduled premiere dates.

Unfortunately, The CW recently released its spring schedule and Supergirl is not on the list. Though there was the confirmation that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow would return in May, there wasn’t a mention of the Girl of Steel. Believe us when we say we’re disappointed too!

However, as Kara Danvers herself likes to remind all of us, don’t lose that hope because we’ll all be going up, up and away with Supergirl‘s final season in the very near future. But when can we expect Supergirl season 6 to premiere?

Possible premiere date for Supergirl season 6

Supergirl season 6 will premiere on The CW in the coming months. It may feel like it’s the last of the Arrowverse shows to return but that’s not necessarily true. That right there could be the key to figuring out when it will make its comeback.

DC’s Stargirl is absent from The CW’s spring schedule too. However, a recent trailer confirmed that it would return in the summer. With that in mind, it’s likely that Supergirl season 6 will join it.

Think about it: The CW is renowned for its Arrowverse programming and it’s going to need something to fill the gap in the summer when the other shows take their annual hiatuses. Pairing Supergirl with Stargirl could work really well as the pair of heroes could dominate the summer line-up.

On the other hand, putting one near the start of the week and the other at the end of the week would also guarantee the network returning Arrowverse fans during the summer.

Supergirl‘s final season will mark the end of an era for both it and The CW, so allowing it to shine on its own during the summer would be a well-earned main-event-like finale for the Girl of Steel.

Fear not, friends: Melissa Benoist’s Girl of Steel will return in the near-future. And we’ll keep you posted on the exact details when we find out!
