Supergirl Season 5: Release Date, Plot, Cast And More

Supergirl season 4 is coming to an end and we've got all the details regarding season 5. Let's explore

Supergirl Season 5 Renewal Status

Supergirl Season 5

All Supergirl fans rejoice! Despite the show's drop in ratings recently, CW has still gone on to renew the show for a fifth season.


But the possibility of a sixth season is very low at the moment as the viewership for each season keeps getting lower and lower. Season 4 premiered to a disappointing 1.523 million viewers, 18% lower than the previous season premiere. It just seems like people are losing interest in superhero TV shows because this trend is not only present for Supergirl but for every single superhero show on CW, well, almost all. Arrow was canceled due to the drop in ratings and Black Lightning seems to be joining the roster. Are we going to get a season 6 of Supergirl? The future is uncertain but for now, we can look forward to season 5.

Supergirl Season 5 Release Date

It's almost a guarantee that Supergirl Season 5 will be released in the same release schedule as always. So, considering all the release dates of the previous seasons, we can expect Supergirl Season 5 to premiere in October 2019.

Supergirl season 4 still has one or two more episodes remaining in its lineup so since we don't know the end of season 4 it is very difficult for us to predict season 5.

"We want to continue to tell stories that reflect the world we're living in and have Supergirl be a beacon of hope and strength and help guide us anyway she can so she can inspire the best in people," executive producer Robert Rovner has said.

Unless someone gets killed off in the season finale of season 4 we can probably expect most of our main characters to return. These include Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, David Harewood as J'onn J'onzz and Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor. We can also expect Nicole Maines to return as Nia Nal aka Dreamer.


It's also possible that Jon Cryer's Lex Luthor may return as well.
