When will be Supergirl Season 6 be on The CW?
Season 6 of Supergirl was not released in its usual October 2020 slot because of reasons you should all be acutely aware of.
The series eventually got released on The CW on 30th March 2021. It consists of 20 episodes in total.
What is the expected release date of Supergirl Season 6 on Netflix in the US?
In the United States, the new episodes always roughly arrive one week after its US finale air date. Therefore we have seen the entire fifth season on 25th May after the finale aired on The CW on 17th May 2020.
The same case will be again seen in the sixth season, but this time the air date has been given much later (possibly 3-6months). Therefore we are originally expecting it to arrive sometime between August and December 2021.
However, we do not have any exact time schedule for all 20 episodes, it looks like the show’s sixth season should wrap up in November 2021. We’ll then see the episodes drop soon after.
This system is applied to all the DC series such as The Flash Season 7 as well.
Original Release Schedule
Supergirl is considered as a Netflix Original and gets weekly episode drop in those regions we have mentioned above that are not the US. Last year, for instance, episodes would air on Sundays before coming to Netflix the following Tuesday.
Therefore, it will happen again so. We will update this post with a release calendar table as and when we learn of when episodes will actually begin airing.
When will supergirl leave Netflix?
If you are thinking that Supergirl is leaving Netflix anytime soon, then you do not have to fear, at least for a while.
Supergirl will remain on Netflix as part of the large output deal Netflix had with The CW up until 2019. Any shows produced before this date that continues to get new seasons will come to Netflix.
However, once Supergirl wraps up and adds its final season to Netflix, that then starts the clock for when it leaves Netflix (expected to be four years after). That’s why we’re currently expecting all of Arrow to depart Netflix in 2024 for instance.
