Production

  • This season was rumored to begin filming mid-April 2020 to accommodate Melissa Benoist's pregnancy, but this plan was rendered obsolete once the COVID-19 shutdowns forced delays on all television productions. Filming resumed, tentatively, in September 2020 alongside the other Arrowverse shows.
    • Melissa stated in an interview that her maternity leave wouldn't be over until January 2021.[16]
    • However, before production could even begin, Supergirl had to shut down on September 30, 2020 due to delays in processing COVID-19 tests in British Columbia. Luckily, the stoppage was temporary.[17]
    • On October 7, 2020, production was allowed to resume.
  • Production wrapped on August 6, 2021.[18]
