Supergirl season 5 spent a bit of its time slowly building up a romance between Kara and William, culminating in him putting himself in mortal peril to try and save her in the finale.
It’s been quite low-key, which is something that star Melissa Benoist is really happy about. Looking forward, she hopes that season 6 of the superhero show doesn’t try to ramp it up too quickly. When your character is faster than a speeding bullet, you want to take your time with some things.
Speaking to the folks at TVLine, Benoist said: “What’s exciting for Kara is the amount of possibilities. She’s had quite a bit of time to herself without any love interests, so I think it’s great that there was a possibility at all in season 5.
“I would anticipate it even going into season 6, with complications arising, but I’m glad people are curious. What’s really fun on TV is watching slow burns with romance, so I think people can expect that.”
As well as more episodes of Supergirl, the show also has a spin-off on the horizon called Superman & Lois, focusing on Tyler Hoechlin’s version of the Man of Steel and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane.
