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.

Here’s a still shot. It’s definitely a woman without bangs in the Supergirl suit.
Melissa ?

I hope this is right and that we do start seeing some Melissa content, soon. That said, I don't trust a thing that DCTVshow says. They have a really bad habit of saying "officially confirmed" on things that aren't confirmed, and don't cite sources.


I don't know if this will count but...well...

I think Melissa is on set


Yes,it looks like the bangs are gone.

Just watching the latest DCTVshow podcast and they revealed the title of episode 6x07 is,""FEAR KNOT." This is the episode David Harewood just directed.It's also our first episode title.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGv2eRiie74

They also reveal they got official confirmation that the reason we haven't seen Melissa in any set photos yet or behind the scene photos is because she has been filming separately from the rest of the cast catching up shooting her scenes on the episodes that were filmed in the Fall.From 1/18 to 2/8 she has been filming all that stuff which is why we haven't seen any photos of her yet.She is now completely caught up on filming.We potentially could get our first look at Melissa maybe next week.

They also got confirmation that Melissa is not in episode 6,the episode Chyler directed that flashes back to young Kara and Alex..Melissa may have maybe one small scene in that episode.

David has wrapped directing his episode yesterday.Here is behind the scenes video he posted on his twitter showing the celebration of wrapping.

https://twitter.com/DavidHarewood/status/1359214717269549056

In the DCTV video,you can also see a behind the scenes photo of David with Katie from this episode.Also they speculate that it was Katie shooting that celebration video which is why she isn't in it with the other cast members.

Season 6 villain?

https://screenrant.com/supergirl-season-6-villain-magic-dangerous-rumored/

@kdogg87
I hope it's true. One, a magical villain would be a new, challenging adversary. I, for one, am wary of mostly human villains we've had for the past 2 years. Leviathan had potential, but they failed to do anything really great with that story.

I was thinking we would get a female take on the Annointed One as the real power behind Leviathan and the one that Gamemnae answers to... The character is quite powerful and was part of the Ancients DC comic story arc involving Atlantis. Gamemnae outfit in the finale looked very Atlantean.

Hopefully, the carryover of this story arc will give it more bite and a memorable conclusion. Leviathan otherwise was barely a whimper of a villain.

Secondly, if she's trying to enact some sort of revenge against Supergirl, as the article suggests, that means the primary conflict is between Supergirl and this new witch. This would be a FANTASTIC change of pace, considering the villains for seasons 4 and 5 have more personal connection with Lena and J'onn (Lex, Manchester Black, and Ma'alefa'ak) than Supergirl.

The best stories stem from a villain who has some sort of personal connection with the hero.

Anyway. This is legitimately the first bit of news to get me at all excited for this season. The news has been so scant, that I'm hoping this is the first drop of a steady stream as we start to get closer to the premiere date (whenever the crap that is).

Man...week 3 since the lead's supposed return, and still nothing for teasers, promo photos, bts pics, instagram photos or stories...

I'm beginning to place bets with myself regarding if we'll see anything with Melissa, either official or unofficial, on set, before March 12th, which will be one year since the last time our lead actor was seen on set before the pandemic shutdown.

Annnnnd here's a new set photo.:)

Azie Tesfai posted this photo to Instagram

https://www.instagram.com/p/CKpZV9qg04c/

No Melissa but still very cool.

I'm also listening to the latest DCTVshows podcast and Azie also confirmed they are filming episode 7.David Harewood got the episodes numbers mixed up.He's directing episode 7 it sounds like,not 6.She also said via Instagram Live that she thinks Supergirl will premiere in April.The network hasn't confirmed anything but the podcast speculates that The CW could announce something in March.Until the network announces a premiere date,nothing is set in stone(and even then,things can change as shown with The Flash being delayed a week to March 2).

Personally,I think a May premiere is still more likely.

Supergirl is scheduled to wrap on August 6.

Almost 2 weeks into Melissa's supposed return with no pics! Gah!

Sorry guys. I'm freaking starved for content. It's been over 10 months since the last time we got some on-set pics of Supergirl!


I know the feeling.

Could Kara become Superwoman? While I don't see TPTB sending Kara down the same embittered path as the comics (Future State Superwoman #1), could Supergirl take on the new moniker in its final bow?


Anything is possible.There is some synergy currently going on between the comics and shows.Ryan Wilder was just introduced in the comics in Batgirl # 50 back in the Fall.The new Wonder Girl series the CW is developing is based on the new character who just debuted in Future State.

I'm honestly just sitting on pins and needles, waiting for SOME kind of photo confirmation that Melissa is back, in the suit, and working. BTS photos, a promo photo. ANYTHING.

@comic book fan IMO though the two important ones would be Barry & Clark.

Most definitely... with Kate "missing", Barry and Clark are the two "must haves". I'd love another Music Meister Supergirl episode with Barry to bookend with the Flash episode. I'd also love Clark and Kara on Argo and Kara visiting Clark and her nephews in Smallville before the series wraps.

Although, I had long wanted a Legends two parter that started with the younger Danvers and concluded with the present day Danvers. Also,, If Kara heads to the future to join the Legion, my hope for how the show ends, it would be fun if the Waverider just happens to pop up.

I certainly understand the risk of crossovers during Covid-19 times and although a bummer, it was smart to cancel this year's event. However, If the other shows wrap filming before Supergirl, could they work in farewell guest appearances? There would be a far lesser contamination risk if the other shows have wrapped.


Since the series finale is shooting in August,I'm hoping things are a bit better pandemic wise by that point via vaccines allowing for Barry,Clark and maybe Sara popping in for the finale.

IMO though the two important ones would be Barry & Clark.

The only issue is that the CW is hoping for normal filming to resume for next season meaning the following seasons will be filming.The head of the CW has said that they are even considering cutting the episode order of some shows this season so they can begin filming for the next season at the normal time.This wouldn't effect Supergirl because it's ending but assuming The Flash is renewed for season 8(and I'm sure it will be) than they will want to start filming Season 8 in mid to late July.That may not be a big issue sicne they were able to get Melissa,Grant and Caity to pop in for Arrow finale even though their shows were also filming.Marc Guggenheim even talkmed about that Melissa literally popped over to the Arrow set for like a hour to film the funeral scene and immediately returned the Supergirl set to continue filming the current episode.

It's really going to come down to where things stand with the pandemic come mid summer.

@comic fan. I guess if Melissa had to miss an episode or two, the ones featuring the younger versions of the Danvers sister would work the best. We still get Kara Danvers. Supergirl without Kara is really not Supergirl.


It's a good trade off.Whenever young Kara and Alex appear,it's popular and fans have been hoping for another episode centered on them like,Midvale' so since they can't have Melissa for two episodes than give us something else that they know people want and give a extra helping of it with two episodes too.So no Melissa for two episodes but we get to episodes featuring the young Danvers and as you say,Kara is still in the episode.
