Supergirl is ending with its upcoming sixth season, and the tributes are already beginning.
“To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement. Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless,” series star Melissa Benoist wrote in the caption of a photo from her on set on Instagram soon after the news broke.
And her character, Kara Danvers/Supergirl, has meant quite a deal to her as well. “She’s had that impact on me, too. She’s taught me strength I didn’t know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we’re united,” she continued. “What she stands for pushes all of us to be better. She has changed my life for the better, and I’m forever grateful.”
She concluded with a promise of “one helluva final season.” Read her entire message below.
