Supergirl Finale Set Photos Show Many Character Returns But At A Funeral?

With Superman & Lois dominating the Kyrptonian content on the CW at the moment, it’s been easy to forget that Supergirl was canceled by the CW last year. The series, starring Melissa Benoist as the super-charming Kara Danvers is currently finishing up filming. Yet, new set photos of what appears to be the Supergirl finale shows a host of characters returning. Only the bad news is that it seems they are back to film a funeral scene. Images captured by on-set sleuths saw the return of Benoist’s real-life husband (and current He-Man) Chris Wood as Mon-El. We also see Jeremy Jordan on set as Winn Schott, Kara’s former best pal. Superman’s pal, Jimmy, er James Olsen is also back, as Mehcad Brooks was caught laughing heartily in a photo. No sighting of Ally-McBeal-turned-Cat-Grant Calista Flockhart, though.

While it warms the hearts of fans who watched the show since it debuted on CBS, before switching to the CW, there is a downside. These set photos pretty clearly show that these characters are attending what looks to be a funeral for a friend. (The lack of David Harewood’s J’onn J’onzz in these photos worries your humble correspondent for his character’s fate.) Because as great as these Arrowverse shows are, they do differ from the comics in a major way: the eventually have to end.

Of course, these set photos from what appears to be the Supergirl finale suggest it might be a pretty, well, final ending. Yet, there is always hope for these versions of the characters to return. David Ramsey just popped up on all of the CW series this year, even though Arrow ended after the Crisis On Infinite Earths event. Cress Williams may return as Black Lightning on The Flash next year after his series finale this year. So, while it may be over for the show, these characters will live on. (Except maybe one.) This show was incredibly important and full of wonderful, heartfelt stories. It’s a shame to see it end, but such is real-life.

In fact, it’s possible that with Supergirl ending, Kara Danvers could finally make an appearance on the Supergirl spinoff, Superman & Lois. The first season of that show kept the “universe” small, focused on the Super-family. In season 2, they will hopefully open things up to return Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman to the TV Justice League.

Supergirl returns for her final flight on August 24, 2021.
