Our favorite Kryptonian superhero is back. Season 5 of Supergirl premiered on 6th September, and we are set for an entire season of thrilling superhero action.
Why do we love Supergirl so much?
If you remember Superman’s (Kal-El) story, you know that he was sent from Krypton to earth to protect him from Krypton’s explosion. What you probably didn’t know is that Kal-El’s 13-year-old cousin (Kara Zor-El/ Supergirl) was sent to take care of him on earth.
However, her spaceship didn’t make it to earth. It was stuck in the Phantom Zone for 24 years. By the time it landed, Kal-El had already become Superman. The fact that Kal-El had a cousin that we didn’t know about was enough to hook us onto the show.
The series begins 11 years after Kara’s spacecraft landed. Circumstances force Kara to reveal her powers, and she becomes the city’s protector. Kara is different from other superheroes, and that is why we love her so much. She believes in love, compassion, and forgiveness.
Supergirl isn’t just a show about a superhero defeating the bad guys. It’s a show that reassures us that our past shouldn’t define our future. Despite being a superhero show, there is a real human connection between the show and ourselves.
Will Supergirl season 5 come to Netflix?
Supergirl airs on The CW network, which has an existing streaming deal with Netflix. The deal ensures that an entire season of the show appears on Netflix 8 days after the release of the season finale.
Supergirl usually concludes between May and June. We can expect that the final episode of season 5 will air at around that time. You can expect Supergirl to appear on Netflix between May and June 2020.
Unfortunately, this only applies to Netflix US subscribers. UK subscribers can catch Supergirl season 5 on Sky or on Now TV.
What to expect in Supergirl season 5
First of all, Kara has to find a way to deal with Lex Luthor’s evil schemes. Unfortunately, Lex Luthor has earned the trust of the US President, and so it will be difficult for Kara to prove his guilt.
Then Kara has to deal with the Crisis on Infinite Earths. If you’ve read the original Crisis comic book series, you know that Supergirl dies during the crisis. However, it is widely expected that Superman will sacrifice himself to ensure that Kara remains alive.
We really can’t wait for season 5 to unravel.
