The CW has released the first trailer for the sixth and final season of Supergirl, teasing the final showdown between Melissa Benoist’s titular heroine and Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor.
Supergirl will premiere March 30 and run through to May 11, after which it will go on a break when Superman & Lois returns from its hiatus. Once the latter series concludes its first season, Supergirl will presumably return for its final stretch of episodes.
As Brainiac lays close to death after trying to stop Lex (Jon Cryer), Supergirl and team soar in to save him, engaging in an epic battle with Gamenmae (played by guest star Cara Buono). After beating Leviathan, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex who has used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world to love him and follow him at all costs, no matter what horrible things he does.
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jess Rath as Brainiac 5, David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onnz, Nicole Maines as Nia Nal/Dreamer, Azie Tesfai as Kelly Olsen and Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor.
