I decided to start basically a Supergirl season 6 thread.I was already figuring we may get some news at DC's FanDome event next month but apparently there was a Virtual Wizard World Con in the past few days and several cast members were there.Apparently there was some season 6 news there.TheDCTVshow has a report on it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL_031LiXNw

The Major news points.

1)Jesse Rath revealed they plan to begin shooting September 28.

DCTVshow speculates that they might do what they did at the start of season 4 where other cast members like Jesse will begin shooting September 28 but Melissa might start a little later.

2)Helen Slater will be in a couple episodes in season 6.

The next bit I'll spoiler highlight since it could be considered a spoiler.

3)
Warning: Spoiler Alert! [Toggle message]
From Jesse Rath:"The writers are working on,not a Legion story but what I think is the essence of what The Legion Of Superheroes is."

DCTVShow speculates he's not expecting Legion members appearing but more the idea of what The Legion is.A team of superheroes coming together.So really Team Supergirl really coming together as a team and becoming the basis of what The Legion becomes in the future.


ETA

I think I found the actual panel video.

LOL you beat me to this. We know that on the Coffee Live IG video Melissa did on July 7th she said she was only weeks away. It’s possible in the time between the two videos she’s had the baby and they just haven’t made a public announcement. But even if that’s the case if she’s expected back at the end of September that’s not much of a maternity leave. They could be planning to start without Melissa like they did in season 4 but why would they do that given the shows “mid-season” primer.

When Supergirl was moved to “mid-season” the reasoning given made sense, production could start later which would give Melissa more recovery time. With what Jesse said it now seems they plan to start production around same time as the “fall” shows. Admins any information you can give us on production plans.

Someone in a FB group i’m in posted the video and summarized. I don’t generally get much out of panels so I haven’t watched. I’m still scratching my head as to why they wouldn’t go with a later start date to avoid Melissa being out and the added bonus of having the other shows work out the kinks in the new Coronavirus production protocols.

If the baby comes in the next 2 weeks that would give Melissa a 6 week maternity leave... not very long but fairly standard in the regular working world.

Odd panel selection. I like them, but I would have expected more from the current regular lineup.

I posted all these in the thread about the Canada border but here's the Supergirl season 6 specific one.

'Real Heroes Wear Masks' in New Posters for Superman & Lois, The Flash and More Returning CW Shows

By Andy Swift / August 3 2020

https://pmctvline2.files.wordpress.com/2020/08/arrowverse-posters.jpg

The Arrowverse’s finest are suiting up like never before.

The CW has released a series of posters for its 2021 slate of superhero series — Black Lightning (Season 4), DC’s Legends of Tomorrow (Season 6), The Flash (Season 7), Stargirl (Season 2), Supergirl (Season 6) and Superman & Lois (Season 1) — all of which feature the shows’ iconic stars wearing masks. Heck, they even let Beebo in on the action.

The posters, of course, aim to stress the importance of wearing masks while out in public to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Supergirl and The Flash were forced to wrap their latest seasons early when the pandemic led to an industry-wide shutdown in March 2020, while Superman & Lois received a straight-to-series order without being able to film a traditional pilot. Black Lightning, Stargirl and Legends of Tomorrow were unaffected.

Stargirl, whose first season currently airs on both The CW and streaming service DC Universe, was recently renewed for a CW-only second season. Stargirl‘s freshman run concludes on Monday, Aug. 10. (Click here to check out first-look photos from the big finale.)

Batwoman is conspicuously absent from this batch of posters, likely because Javicia Leslie — who will don the iconic cowl in Season 2, following Ruby Rose’s exit — hasn’t been able to do a full photo shoot in costume yet.

Browse our gallery of the posters — you can click here for direct access — then drop a comment with your thoughts below. Which superhero show are you looking forward to the most?

Well, Melissa can’t pose for a new poster right now and fans tend to not like reused and photoshopped ones. With the lead unavailable who would you have preferred. Perhaps Chyler and David were unavailable. It could be that Nicole was just the most available but I know some think Dreamer is too powerful. BTW Grant didn’t do the poster they released for Flash, Candice did. They tend to want to show off new suits in these pre-season posters so that could be another reason for the leads not doing them and not reusing last years. Grant just hasn’t had the fittings.

I'm well aware of the Iris poster. They both exemplify my primary frustrations with these two shows.

It isn't Dreamer that upsets me--nor Iris. (And I think rather highly of Nichole and Candice as well.) Honestly, it's the lack of commitment to the title characters. At this point, it's downright painful; this just rubs salt in the wound.

If the reason was Melissa and Grant not being available for new shots, I'd rather they had done either nothing or a teaser with a logo--until they could do something with the leads.

In the absence of a resolution of the coronavirus threat, predictions that shooting will start on some date are to be taken perhaps *** grano salis. On the same line, one hopes that the lead actress is doing well.

This. Lack of focus on the leads is my primary focus on both series. I'd MUCH rather get re-used images of both Flash and Supergirl, or just banners, instead of throwing banners of other characters out as the ONLY new poster release.

If they had released a series of posters (even if they had to use reused images) so there were images of the leads AND other characters, I'm totally down for that. But right now, it's totally just salting the wound.

I feel the same way when they promote Batwoman season 1 when they are completely abandoning that character altogether.

I suspect there are numerous stock stills of Melissa that fans have not seen that with the comic backdrop and photo effects would look fresh and new. That is unless we are getting a new suit variation in S6.

I'd honestly be okay with this, lol. I don't hate a suit with pants, but something about the season 5 suit looked super frumpy, IMO.

To me, the problem is just too much blue and not enough color separation. To try and rectify that, I'd lower the S shield a bit lower, to where it was on the original costume. I'd then lower the neckline, to be about 2" above the top of the new S shield location, as the current neckline seems disproportionately wide and high. I also don't like how they have that weird piping extending from the seam of the arm over her shoulders, like odd looking pauldrons. I'd also add some sort of red wrap, around the waist, which is open in the front. By doing this, I feel they can use the shield to fill some of that empty blue canvas they've created with this costume.

Though, full honesty, I wish the Overgirl design from Earth X could be adapted to a Supergirl suit. She may have been evil, but that suit looked amazing.

I think the new Dreamer poster is actually a quite clever play on her powers... She's seen the future, season 6 is coming... I like it.

What's interesting about the Dreamer poster and the one The Flash put out featuring Iris is that the backround shows the character's comic book counterpart.In Dreamer's case,it's actually her descendant from The Legion Of Superheroes who of course has been referenced on the show via Brainy and Winn.

I also think it's clever, but as the lead off promotional poster, I feel it is yet another case of diminishing Kara.

If it hadn't been an ongoing concern, I wouldn't mind as much. :)

I'm not happy about the new Dreamer poster for Season 6. Why in the world would they release that as the first poster? It even makes it look like Dreamer is Supergirl with the Supergirl logo under it. Ugh. I don't mind Dreamer, but the show is supposed to be about Supergirl.

And pretty in part due to fan demand they’ve released a poster with Supergirl using a old picture of Melissa.
