With only five episodes remaining in the show's sixth and final season, Supergirl's cast -- and a handful of special guest stars -- took a moment to reflect on the show and what it has come to mean to them over the years.
For DC FanDome 2021, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers), Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers), David Harewood (J'onn J'onzz), Katie McGrath (Lena Luthor), Jesse Rath (Brianiac-5), Nicole Maines (Nia Nal/Dreamer), Azie Tesfai (Kelly Olsen/Guardian), Julie Gonzalo (Andrea Rojas), Staz Nair (William Dey) and Petra Sergeant (Nyxly) teamed up with series alumni Mehcad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen), Chris Wood (Mon-El) and Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott) in a special video. Together, they looked back at the past six years and shared what they'll miss most about the series.
With some help from one another, they shared some of their more emotional moments -- and a few not-so-serious ones, including the time Wood ate 10 pancakes at once or the way they would use Supergirl's cape for some "cloth magic" behind the scenes. The featurette also makes sure to include clips from the show and these behind-the-scenes gags, so fans can see exactly what they're referring to as they tell their stories.
As they went through their memories, they made sure to thank some of the cast and crew who make the show possible, including stunt coordinator Simon Burnett and his team. For one answer, they all recalled working with director Kevin Smith for his Season 2 episode "Slaver's Moon," which saw them filming in a quarry one night in the pouring rain. Harewood himself also got a shout-out for his directorial work on the series.
Along the way, they also discussed the way the show has inspired their fans -- and them, in return. For instance, McGrath shared how Lena's science expertise has led more young women to pursue careers in STEM. In another story, Leigh remembered a convention she attended, where she was approached by a mother and her two young daughters: one adopted and one biological. They thanked Leigh and Benoist for their work representing a family like theirs in a real, healthy way.
Supergirl airs Tuesdays at 9 pm ET/PT on The CW. The series finale bows on Nov. 9.
