Production worked around Melissa Benoist by placing Supergirl in a different place than the Super Friends until she could join them (Crew did something similar for a shorter period of time when Benoist starred in Beautiful on Broadway, by shooting episodes out of order and putting Supergirl in an exo suit).
Supergirl began filming its final season last Fall and is reportedly shooting episode 6×09 this week.
Filming dates: October 13th to August 6th.
Showrunners: Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner.
Cast: Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Azie Tesfai, Andrea Brooks, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair, Sharon Leal with special guest star Jon Cryer.
Highlights of season 6 so far:
Cast has shared photos of themselves masked up and on set for the final season.

Where did we leave Supergirl?
In the premature season five finale directed by David Harewood, Supergirl teamed up with Lena Luthor to take down Lex and Leviathan.
J’onn J’onzz, while complaining about chafing from Supergirl’s new pants, provided a Supergirl decoy.
While Kara and Lena took the bus across town to Luthor Corp.
Alex debuted her new suit and Ziggy Stardust eye makeup.
Leviathan was defeated when Brainy bottled the immortals, seemingly sacrificing himself to save his friends.
And Lex lived on, of course.
Immortal Kombat was meant to be the second-to-last episode of season five but corona virus fears shut down production of the season finale in mid-March with at least three days of filming left to do. Will season 6 start with what was supposed to be the season 5 finale?
Supergirl season 6 will premiere March 30th on The CW replacing Superman & Lois until May.
