Supergirl season 6 episode 8 return date for Melissa Benoist, cast

Following tonight’s spring finale, it only makes sense to want Supergirl season 6 episode 8 back sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. There’s a reason why tonight was set up in the way that it was — The CW knows that the series has a really long time to go until Melissa Benoist and the cast are back. How long? Think in terms of late August! They made the decision to have this big break to not only give time for production to finish the show, but also scale out many of their original properties throughout the summer. This network is evolving now to become more of a year-round source of programming — it is caring increasingly less and less about traditional broadcast season, understanding that young viewers are going to watch more frequently online. That’s why it has invested as much as it has in having one of the best apps that is out there for easy viewing.

Supergirl star Melissa Benoist on the trauma Kara will endure in isolation

Warning: This article contains spoilers about Tuesday's season 6 premiere of Supergirl. Kara Danvers isn't in Kansas National City anymore. In Supergirl's season 6 premiere, Kara (Melissa Benoist) sacrificed her life two times. First, she lured a super-powered Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) to the Fortress and allowed him to kill her so that the Super Friends had time to undo his brainwashing scheme. Thankfully, Lena used the anti-Kryptonite suit and Fortress technology to revive Kara, and the rest of the team showed up for round two against the egomaniac. Unfortunately, that didn't go as planned either. Sure, Alex managed to depower Lex, but not before he grabbed the Phantom Zone projector and sent Kara to the desolate Kryptonian prison without her powers or a means to escape. Yikes!
