Episode 6×06 Prom Again will be Chyler Leigh’s directorial debut on Supergirl. She was listed to direct in early November but that changed. Leigh had some shadow directing to do and Izabela Vidovic and Olivia Nikkanen had some quarantining to do.

Episode 6×05 Prom Night — the first of the two-parter — is in production.

Midvale Filming locations:

Wednesday, December 2nd at Biercraft on Cambie in Vancouver as Midvale Diner.

December 3rd and 4th – University of British Columbia campus.

Will grownup Kara Danvers be in the episode? It’s likely but these can be pickup scenes when Melissa Benoist joins production after her maternity leave. She and her husband Chris Wood (Supergirl’s Mon-el) welcomed a son in early September.

In mid-September, Chyler Leigh expressed her gratitude to Supergirl and tagged the #DanversSisters on the news that season 6 would be the final season:

Reposting this golden oldie. I think this was our first day ever working together. I had no idea what I was doing on a comic book show or how I landed the job of a lifetime. I was trying to figure out how to hold my hands on my hips in as authoritative position as I could and would look over at @melissabenoist and @davidharewood and be nothing but inspired to stand taller and believe in myself. Grateful is an understatement for me. This has not only been the greatest, most challenging (physically and emotionally) project I’ve ever been a part of, I met family I never even knew I had. I met my #soulsister and I met our #spacedad. And… I met Alex Danvers. She has taught me more about myself than I could’ve imagined. She taught me to be proud of who I am for exactly who I am. 6 seasons is a rare gift in this business. It’s even more rare to absolutely adore and admire and enjoy the people you work with, let alone spend upwards towards 16 hours a day together ? But this show for all of us has been a journey much like Kara’s herself. Full of adventure, excitement, love, discovery, risk, and tremendous strength. We’ve leaned on and learned from each other. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I can’t wait for you all to see what happens as we near the end of this season. My many thanks to everyone who has created the beautiful stories we on this show are lucky enough to tell. I will always love our cast and crew. We will always be #strongertogether @supergirlcw #season6 #danverssisters
