Fans are concerned if this will be the end of the Arrowverse since it has faced a lot of setbacks
Supergirl is coming to an end after six seasons, and followers of the CW shows are wondering if this might just be the beginning of the end for the Arrowverse. Last year, we got to see many changes happening to the shared universe of all these popular DC superheroes and a reason for concern is there.
Supergirl started airing on CBS in the fall of 2015, and was included in the Arrowverse roster after Arrow and The Flash. It had a crossover with The Flash on its first season, and it was hinted in season 2 that Supergirl, aka Kara Zor-El is part of a larger universe. Despite being included in the Arrowverse, Supergirl’s story was in an alternate reality of Earth-38. We finally got to see her sharing screen space with the other CW heroes earlier this year in the final crossover series, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Why is it ending?
Last year, we got to see Arrow ending after eight seasons. The future of Batwoman is also iffy after lead Ruby Rose left after one season. If you also consider the increasing production costs due to COVID-19, it can be concluded that the series might be too much of a strain.
The Arrowverse has become a big part of The CW and it came to be known as CWverse. The CW considers these shows to be something worth investing in and with the end of these shows, we can expect more superhero shows to arrive. We can also expect their other long-running shows, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow to come to an end as well.
