TV announced today that they have made a decision to end Supergirl after its upcoming sixth season. Season 6 will consist of 20 episodes, and it's slated to premiere sometime in 2021.

Clarkson said she'll refrain from giving too many details about the divorce out of concern for the couple's kids. According to the singer, music is something that has always been her emotional outlet for her during hard times.

Much like the rest of the Arrowverse lineup, Supergirl was notable for featuring many LGBTQ+ characters, including trans heroine Dreamer (played by trans actress and activist Nicole Maines) and lesbian character/Supergirl's sister Alex Danvers (played by actress Chyler Leigh, who came out earlier this year).
