Supergirl is a costumed superheroine who is Superman’s cousin and one of the last surviving Kryptonians. The series is the third series set in the Arrowverse, sharing continuity with the other TV series of the franchise.
The series was officially picked up on May 6, 2015, after receiving a series commitment in September 2014, and received a full season order on November 30, 2015. Since the second season, the series has aired on The CW.

In January 2019, the series was renewed for a fifth season consisting of 22 episodes and which premiered on October 6, 2019. In January 2020, the CW renewed the series for a sixth season.
Filming for the fifth season began in June 2019. Melissa Benoist still stars as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, with principal cast members Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, and David Harewood also returning from previous seasons.

Supergirl or Kara Zor-El was sent to Earth from Krypton as a 13-year-old by her parents Zor-El and Alura. Krypton was exploding, and Kara’s parents sent Kara in a spacecraft to Earth after her cousin. Kara was meant to protect her infant cousin Kal-El, but her spacecraft was knocked off course and forced into the Phantom Zone, where it stayed for 24 years. By the time the spacecraft crash landed on Earth, Kal-El had grown up and become Superman. The series begins eleven years later when the now 24-year-old Kara is learning to embrace her powers and has adopted the superheroic alias “Supergirl”.
In the first season of the series, Kara is forced to reveal her powers, and becomes National City’s protector. Kara discovers that hundreds of the criminals her mother imprisoned are hiding on Earth, including her aunt Astra and Astra’s husband Non. Kara works with her adoptive sister Alex Danvers to fight these criminals, alongside the Green Martian J’onn J’onzz, her cousin’s friend James Olsen, and tech genius Winn Schott.
