With the sixth and final season of the Melissa Benoist-starring Supergirl ready to take flight on Tuesday, March 30, we have a number of updates on The CW series. First up, the network released a new set of preview images that finds Kara (Benoist) and Lena (Katie McGrath) getting the band back together to take down the double-threat of Gamenmae (Cara Buono) and Leviathan, and … of course… Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer). But with Brainiac (Jesse Rath) near-death and Lex close to getting everything he wants, will Kara need to make the ultimate sacrifice to save the day once again? This brings us to the second bit of news, the series' official trailer- which we now learned will premiere on YouTube on Tuesday, March 23, at 1 pm ET.
Finally, we also have a look at the overview for the second episode of the season, "A Few Good Women." With the overview subtitle "The Breaking Point," the description reads: "As the stakes with Lex (Jon Cryer) are raised higher than ever before, Lena (Katie McGrath) must decide how far she is willing to go to stop her brother. Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the team are faced with a challenge unlike anything they've ever dealt with before and it brings Alex (Chyler Leigh) to her breaking point." Jesse Warn is helming the episode, with a story by Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller and the teleplay by Jay Faerber and Jess Kardos.
