FINAL SEASON: David Harewood Back in the Director’s Chair For SUPERGIRL 6×07 Fear Knot


Updated with new photo.

Supergirl is back in production this week on its final season in Vancouver after a longer-than-usual holiday hiatus.

And David Harewood is back in the Director’s chair for episode 7 of season 6 titled Fear Knot.

He shared a photo of himself Thursday doing double duty as the Martian Manhunter and director.

The Supergirl OG was in director’s prep before the holiday hiatus.

David Harewood shared another photo of him directing in costume on February 4th.

Has Melissa Benoist joined production after her Fall maternity leave?

She and her husband Chris Wood (Supergirl’s Mon-el) welcomed a son last September.

Cast: Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair with special guest star Jon Cryer.

Showrunners: Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner.

Supergirl has 20 episodes in its final season and will be filming well into the summer.

Filming dates: October 13th to August 6th, 2021.

The last episode David Harewood directed ended up being the season 5 finale after the pandemic prematurely shut down production last March.

What happened in the season 5 finale?

Supergirl teamed up with Lena Luthor to take down Lex and Leviathan.

Alex debuted her new suit.

Leviathan was defeated when Brainy bottled the immortals, seemingly sacrificing himself to save his friends.

And Lex Luthor lived on, of course.

Supergirl’s final season premieres late this Spring or early summer on The CW.
