While superhero movies have been breaking box office records lately, even superhero shows have been creating legacies of their own; thanks to all the ambitious crossovers and spin-offs. The current grip of superheroes on cinema can be traced all the way back to the gold old classics of the 80s. However, the recent surge in the content surrounding this subgenre has further cemented its demand. What seemingly started off from the Arrowverse has now spread out to other shared-universe of vigilantes and villains. Among all of these fables of metahumans, The CW’s ‘Supergirl’ has found its place among the best.
The critically acclaimed series has been widely appreciated for its light-hearted storyline, and of course, its depiction of a comic character who was considered to be second-string for quite some time. More than anything else, what truly shines about ‘Supergirl’ is that its character motivations are always very intriguing. This itself plays a crucial role further heightening the interest of a viewer. That being said, you may already know that the fifth season of ‘Supergirl’ has finished airing on The CW. This means that the season will soon end up on Netflix. So if you have been eagerly waiting for the release of ‘Supergirl’ Season 5 on Netflix, we have some good news for you in the next section.
