Trivia

  • This season was rumored to begin filming mid-April 2020 to accommodate Melissa's pregnancy, but this plan was rendered obsolete once the COVID-19 shutdowns forced production delays on all television productions. Filming reportedly resume, tentatively, in September alongside the other Arrowverse shows.
    • Unfortunately before production could even begin, on September 30, Supergirl had to shut down due to delays in processing COVID-19 tests in British Columbia. Luckily, the stoppage was assumed to be temporary. [4]
  • This season concluded over two years following the premiere of the previous season.
