Supergirl Star Melissa Benoist Reveals A Wrap On The Final Season With A Touching Message

Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) smiles on Supergirl

Since 2015, fans have enjoyed the small-screen adventures of Kara Danvers on Supergirl, but all good things must come to an end. The superhero show is currently in the midst of its sixth and final season, with the final stretch of episodes set to kick off this month. Some are probably already grappling with the impending conclusion of the fan-favorite series but, now, that inevitability is sure to feel even more real. The series has officially wrapped production, and its star, Melissa Benoist, marked the occasion with a sweet message.

Melissa Benoist took to Instagram to share her response to Supergirl wrapping production, and it was a statement more than befitting the Girl of Steel. In the post, which featured a photo of her in costume alongside co-stars Chyler Leigh and David Harewood, she expressed her gratitude to the fans:

thank you for an incredible 6 years—the cast who became family, everyone who worked on the show, all of you who watched us week after week … that’s a wrap on @supergirlcw

No one would blame you if you shed a tear or two after reading Melissa Benoist’s tender message. It’s a bittersweet acknowledgement, to say the least. You can check out the actress’ full post, complete with her sweet image, down below:

The first half of Supergirl’s final season was emotional, to say the least. Kara found herself trapped within the Phantom Zone, where she was reunited with her father, Zor-El. Meanwhile, her friends on Earth scrambled to find a way to bring her back. Thankfully, they finally managed to rescue the father and daughter from the extraterrestrial prison during the midseason finale.

Supergirl Season 6 has also taken fans on somewhat of a stroll down memory lane. The show’s creators previously teased that some “familiar faces” would be showing up. One of these classic characters was Cat Grant, though this was a younger version of the career woman, who appeared in two flashback episodes. These ultimately made for some of the most exciting and heartfelt episodes of the season, so far.

Following the midseason finale, there are still plenty of things to look forward to in the latter half of the season. For instance, one has to wonder how Nyxlygsptlnz (or Nyxly) will shake things up in Kara’s world now that he’s also been rescued from the Phantom Zone. There’s also the matter of David Ramsey’s John Diggle, who is set to arrive in National City before season’s end.

Even though Supergirl will be leaving us soon, it’s comforting to know that the show still isn’t missing a beat and finding new ways to keep fans invested. And of course, it’s great to see that Melissa Benoist and her collaborators are taking in the moment.

Supergirl returns Tuesday, August 24 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
