Trivia

  • This season was rumored to begin filming mid-April to accommodate Melissa Benoist's pregnancy, but this plan was rendered obsolete once the COVID-19 shutdowns forced delays on all television productions. Filming will reportedly resume, tentatively, in September alongside the other Arrowverse shows.
    • Melissa said in a interview her maternity leave won't be over until January.[11]
    • However, before production could even begin, Supergirl had to shut down on September 30 due to delays in processing COVID-19 tests in British Columbia. Luckily, the stoppage was temporary.[12]
    • On October 7, 2020, production was allowed to resume.
  • This season marks the directorial debut of Chyler Leigh.[13]
