The last season of Supergirl is on its way, with the show set to end next month with a two-hour event. While fans are sad to see the show end, series star Melissa Benoist has revealed that she’s ready for her next step. She also admitted that bidding farewell to the character that she’s associated with is really bittersweet. After six long seasons, one on CBS and five on The CW, and a Superman & Lois spinoff, Benoist has done a lot more with Supergirl than most people expected at the beginning of the series. She still admitted that it hasn’t really hit her that the experience is finally over.

That will arrive very soon though. What’s the good news? She knows that the Arrowverse has always some opportunities for her to reprise the role.
“I don’t think it’s really set in,” Benoist told EW. “I definitely felt a different kind of closure when we wrapped on set, very bittersweet. I felt all the emotions you could feel in the last two weeks of shooting that show. But I think once the final episode airs, and I know that I really don’t have to go back up to Vancouver to shoot, that’s when it’ll probably set in.”
In addition to Superman & Lois which features a completely different version of Superman who first appeared in an episode of Supergirl, Benoist revealed to EW that she would love to team up with Flash again – a partnership that was extremely popular in the Arrowverse and will even make the jump to the big screen in The Flash next year.
“I am not opposed to putting on the suit again and I know there probably will be opportunities to,” Benoist said. “It would have to feel right for the character and I know they would probably do it justice. I love playing with Grant Gustin. I love Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch on Superman & Lois. So no, I’m not opposed to it.”
This feels like a pivotal moment for the Arrowverse. After the end of Supergirl, Arrow, and Black Lightning, only Superman & Lois have joined the lineup until now. It’s still unclear if the upcoming Naomi series will tie into some other DC shows or not.
Supergirl will air on Tuesday at 8 PM ET/PT on The CW.
