Melissa Benoist Reacts To Supergirl Ending With Season 6

Totally gutted about this!

Supergirl star Melissa Benoist has reacted to the news that the CW show’s season 6 will be its last, saying she’s been humbled by the experience. Benoist debuted as Danvers in 2015, when the show first aired on CBS. She remained the lead through the show’s move over to The CW and took a significant role in the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline during the ambitious Arrowverse crossover. The show has been popular among Arrowverse fans, and as a result, the news of the cancellation is something of a surprise.

Benoist has also had a fairly extensive career outside of Supergirl, first making a name for herself as Marley Rose in Glee and starring in Whiplash and Patriots Day. Ironically, Benoist almost missed out on playing Supergirl by earlier auditioning for the part of Thea Queen on Arrow. However, the audition wasn’t successful, and she ended up claiming the titular role in the Arrowverse’s third show after Arrow and The Flash. Benoist’s portrayal of Danvers/Supergirl has been hailed for its combination of tenderness and fierce determination, with many holding her up as a role model for young girls.

Why Supergirl Season 6’s Delay Is Longer Than Other Arrowverse Shows

All of The CW’s superhero exhibits have been delayed till 2021, however Supergirl season 6 is being pushed again till Summer time 2021 for one essential motive.

Superhero followers should wait slightly longer for Supergirl Season 6 than they may the remainder of the Arrowverse exhibits. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the leisure trade, shutting down manufacturing on quite a few tv packages and movie units. It had a significant impact on the Arrowverse particularly, with the manufacturing shutdowns coming simply earlier than Batwoman, Supergirl and The Flash completed filming their newest seasons’ finales. All of those sequence had their last episodes rewritten and re-edited from the finished footage, leading to some drastically totally different endings and main cliffhangers.

The CW determined to delay manufacturing on all of their sequence via the top of the yr, however nonetheless plans to do full season orders for the entire Arrowverse exhibits. A tentative schedule for the 2021 season has been launched, however one sequence was notably absent from the premiere line-up: Supergirl, which has at all times launched its new season together with the opposite Arrowverse exhibits ever because it moved from CBS to The CW in 2016.

Supergirl Star Teases What’s Next For Kara And William’s “Slow Burn” Romance

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.

Melissa Benoist Explains Why Directing Supergirl’s Lex-Centric Hour Was ‘Daunting’

Supergirl

Supergirl definitely isn’t complaining about her latest team-up with Lex Luthor.

This Sunday, The CW’s Supergirl returns for the final run of season 5 with a Lex-centric episode that marks Melissa Benoist‘s long-awaited directorial debut. Benoist has been dying to get behind the camera since season 3, but wasn’t able to until now because of scheduling conflicts. Luckily, it seems like it was well-worth the wait because she got to helm an episode that diverges from the show’s usual structure and perspective, which she admits was initially quite daunting.

Cleverly titled “Deus Lex Machina,” the flashback-heavy hour essentially starts on day one of the post-“Crisis on Infinite Earths” world and sheds light on all of Lex’s (Jon Cryer) behind-the-scenes machinations we haven’t been aware of — from manipulating Eve Teschmacher (Andrea Brooks) and his sister Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath), to pitting Supergirl against Leviathan. In other words, it’s very similar to season 4’s “O Brother, Where Art Thou,” except this time around the criminal mastermind is trying his hardest to keep his Kryptonian hatred in check so that he can focus on defeating Leviathan.

Below, Benoist walks EW through her experience in the director’s chair, working with Cryer, and the challenges of handling such an exposition-heavy episode.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What jumped out at you from a directing perspective when you read the script for the first time? 

MELISSA BENOIST: Considering it was the first time in the director’s chair for me, I think I’d be remiss if I didn’t say how terrified I was. That just went without saying, that I was scared, but reading it also had this thrilling aspect to it because I was going to get to be the one to visualize it and make sure the tone was coming across. I guess only since season 4, we’ve had these episodes that were a departure from the story and took a step back and gave us Lex Luthor’s point of view, and this is one of those episodes. So, I couldn’t believe how lucky I was that I got to be the teller of that particular story for our season, where we recap the entire season from Lex Luthor, Jon Cryer’s eyes. And I was very excited to get to work with him closely in an actor-director relationship. Aside from the initial terror, and wondering whether or not I was capable of doing it, I was so excited and immediately just imagining what I wanted to do and thinking of shots.

Arrow: The Character Melissa Benoist Originally Auditioned For

Melissa Benoist may be the star of Supergirl, but she originally auditioned for a role in Arrow. An American actress and singer, Melissa Benoist rose to prominence when she successfully auditioned for Fox’s musical series Glee. She tried to join the Arrowverse by auditioning for a part in the CW’s new superhero show; however, she was passed over — allowing her to accept the role of Supergirl years later.

It’s hard to imagine Benoist in a different role; her quirky, whimsical character is perfectly suited for the Girl of Steel, and her profound sense of optimism transformed the scripts. She was actually the first actress to audition for the part of Supergirl, and that was no accident: Casting director David Rapaport had remembered her from another audition years ago, all the way back in 2012.
