‘Supergirl’ season 5 finale episode altered by COVID-19 pandemic

'Supergirl' season 5: COVID-19 forces finale episode re-write

Producers will alter original plans for the finale of Supergirl season 5 because of the production shutdown.

The Supergirl season 5 finale will no longer proceed as planned. The cast and crew of The CW show failed to finish the finale episode before the COVID-19 lockdown.

The show’s writers are hard at work rewriting the episode so the finale can air on its set date. The episode will also still utilize some of the scenes that have already been filmed.

Does Lex Luthor survive the Supergirl season 5 finale?

Jon Cryer, who plays Lex Luthor, recently teased that viewers might see more of him beyond Supergirl season 5.

According to a report, Supergirl and her team were supposed to be successful in thwarting Lex’s plans. Cryer, however, shared that the retooled finale will no longer incorporate the manner by which he gets defeated. He thinks this could mean that there is a chance for his character to reappear in the next season.

Melissa Benoist expecting first child

Meanwhile, Supergirl season 5 star Melissa Benoist recently confirmed that she is having a baby.

She announced the news on Instagram, where she uploaded a hilarious picture of her and husband Christopher Wood. She teased her husband, saying that the former The Vampire Diaries actor is an “old dad by nature.”

Benoist confirmed that she married Wood in September last year. They first entered a relationship around the second season of Supergirl, when Wood became part of the superhero show.

Stargirl fails to match The Flash and Supergirl

In other DC Comics adaptation news, Stargirl season 1 will debut on The CW soon. Based on early reviews, it might not be as well-received as the first season of The Flash and Supergirl.

Stargirl tells the story of a young woman who discovers a staff in their basement. It turns out it is no ordinary staff: it was formerly owned by Starman of the Justice Society of America. The superhero grouped died years ago after battling the Injustice Society.

One review said the first three episodes of the season sets up the show well. But the DC Comics adaptation cannot compare to the magnificent pilot episodes from the aforementioned two The CW shows.

More details about the series

That said Stargirl benefits from slightly better special effects (in comparison to shows in the Arrowverse). Lead star Courtney Whitmore also displays why she was cast in the role. Additionally, her gymnastic skills are used well in the show’s action scenes.

Stargirl season 1 will premiere on the DC Universe streaming service on May 18. It will then air on The CW the next evening.
