Supergirl returned in late 2019 for her biggest season to date. After a long wait and a vague release window given, we finally know when Supergirl will be on Netflix in the US? Here’s the full release schedule for Supergirl S5 on Netflix. 

Sometimes the most dangerous villains aren’t always the ones you can just punch in the face. Kara may see one of her hardest challenges yet as the organization Leviathan infiltrates Metropolis. Add to that season 5 contains some of the Crisis on Infinite Earths sequences, it’s been a good time to be a Supergirl fan.

When will Supergirl season 5 be on Netflix?

In April 2020, we got official confirmation that Supergirl is due out on Netflix in May 2020.

Finally, on May 22nd, we learned that season 5 of Supergirl will be on Netflix in the US on May 25th, 2020.

What can we expect from Supergirl season 5?

Supergirl will be tackling comic-book villain organization, Leviathan.

Not too dissimilar to that of Marvel’s Hyrda, Leviathan is an organization that also works from the shadows, infiltrating networks and destroying them from within.

With much of the focus of the fifth season to be centered around technology and how it affects our characters, we could expect to see Leviathan learn our hero’s every move just from the tech alone. While this isn’t Kara’s most powerful villain to date, their ability to infiltrate will give her one of her biggest challenges yet.

The Cross Over – Crisis on Infinite Earths

It’s no secret that this year’s crossover will be the biggest on the Arrowverse yet. Comic book fans will know the history of Crisis on Infinite Earths and the significant impact it had on the DC Comics that can still be felt today.

Expect some huge changes to come to Supergirl upon the conclusion of the crossover.


There will likely be some major changes from the story that took place in the comics. The CW will be left with no choice, as some of the deaths that took place would mean characters such as Supergirl and The Flash will die.

We could see a huge role reversal for the series, and we may witness the death of Superman.

But which Superman?

Tyler Hoechlin is the current actor portraying Kara’s cousin Clark Kent. But we now have confirmation that Tom Welling of Smallville will be returning to reprise his role as the Man of Steel.

There will also be a third Superman. Brandon Routh who previously played the hero in 2006’s Superman Returns, will reprise his role. The death of Supergirl was an iconic moment in the comic, and we could be seeing an equally iconic moment in the series real soon.

Rumors continue to do the rounds that many of The CW shows are leaving Netflix. Subscribers have nothing to worry about for a long time as many of The CW series will be staying for the foreseeable future, Supergirl included.

Even if Supergirl were to be canceled at the end of the fifth season, it would remain on Netflix for a further five years. This means at a minimum Supergirl will be staying on Netflix until 2025.
