With two weeks to go until the sixth and final season of The CW's Supergirl takes flight, viewers have actually been some signs of life from the series this week. First, there was a look at the official episode overview for the season opener "Rebirth." Following that, we learned that newcomer Eliza Helm had been cast as a younger version of Cat Grant- Calista Flockhart's media mogul character from the first season (with a Season 3 appearance). Now, it's the first set of preview images for the Melissa Benoist-starring series' return- and they seem to confirm what we already suspected. If Kara wants to stop Lex's (Jon Cryer) world-dominating plans, it's going to take a group effort from "Team Supergirl." But will that be enough? Or will Kara have to make the ultimate sacrifice to stop Lex once and for all? Here's a look at the preview images and episode overview for the sixth and final season-opener for The CW's Supergirl, hitting your screens on Tuesday, March 30:
Supergirl Season 6, Episode 1 "Rebirth": SEASON PREMIERE – As Brainiac (Jesse Rath) lays close to death after trying to stop Lex (Jon Cryer), Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and team soar in to save him, engaging in an epic battle with Gamenmae (guest start Cara Buono). After beating Leviathan, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex (Jon Cryer) who has used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world to love him and follow him at all costs, no matter what horrible things he does. Knowing how dangerous this makes her brother, Lena (Katie McGrath) enlists the entire team – Alex (Chyler Leigh), J'onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), Kelly (Azie Tesfair), and Brainiac – to help, but Supergirl realizes that the only way to truly stop Lex is to sacrifice herself.
