Due to a COVID-related delay, Superman and Lois Lane is going on a brief hiatus and the final season of Supergirl is premiering a little earlier than expected, March 30th. After last night’s new Superman episode, we finally got our look at the final season of the series which will end Kara Zor-El’s adventures in the CW and will reportedly also be the end of her, literally. From the look of the first trailer, the new season are going to be about one thing and one thing only, the final showdown between Supergirl and Lex Luthor.
