So it looks like the upcoming sixth season of CW’s superhero series Supergirl will be its last. The series starring Melissa Benoist and host of diversity hires ended its fifth season about 5 months ago and recently stated that the next one will be the final one.
Benoist had this to say about it via social media:
“To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement. Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless.
She’s had that impact on me, too. She’s taught me strength I didn’t know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we’re united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better. She has changed my life for the better, and I’m forever grateful
I’m so excited that we get to plan our conclusion to this amazing journey, and I cannot wait for you to see what we have in store. I promise we’re going to make it one helluva final season.”
Honestly, I’m shocked the series lasted this long. I started out really jazzed to watch the show. I love superheroes, and I especially love super-heroines. Something about hot women who can kick ass has always revved my engine but whoa, Nelly…not in this day and age.
These days they don’t know how to tell stories with females without injecting them with toxic messaging. Usually, how men are stupid or evil or both. Woman, however are perpetual victims and the only cure for these Ills are brown people, trans people, lesbianism and more often than not …communism. One day, someone will have to explain to me why so many rich people, would actively campaign for a system of government in which they would immediately become extinct. Seriously, it is beyond me, but here we are.
Some might remember my painful struggles trying to watch the show. How each season became an ever growing slog of intersectionality that one had to slog through to find any semblance of a plot until, finally, like Artax in the Swamp of Sadness I simply could not go on anymore.
I know I was not alone.
The ever dwindling ratings tells me so.
