The CW announced that Supergirl would be coming back for season 5 at the Television Critics Association Press Tour this week. However, CW didn’t mention too many details about what we can expect.
Based on previous seasons, we can make guesses as to when Supergirl season 5 will air on CW. The past four seasons have premiered at some point in October.
While season 1 aired on October 26, 2015, season 2 premiered on October 10, 2016. Season 3 was almost to the day, starting on October 9, 2017. Last year, season 4 premiered on October 14, 2018.
Based on that, we can assume that season 5 will most likely premiere in October 2020 with an exact date still to be determined.
All of the seasons have run well into the spring with season 3 being the longest with 23 episodes. Season 4 has a 22-episode order, the same as season 2. However, since production has yet to begin as far as we know, it may take a while before details are shared.
It sounds like Supergirl fans are excited about the show being renewed, as many were hoping to see the show reach 100 episodes. After the news that season 5 would be happening, fans shared their thoughts on Twitter. It sounds like season 4 is leaving some unanswered questions for season 5.
