Supergirl aired the first half of its final season earlier this year, and now the series is coming back. It’s almost time to say goodbye to Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) and the rest of our favourite Supergirl characters. To get us ready The CW has released a new Supergirl final season trailer that teases the second half of the season!
Kara spent the entirety of the first part of the final season trapped in the Phantom Zone. On the outside all her friends worked tirelessly to save her, but it still took some time. Kara is safe now, but it seems like she may not be the same. Kara is dealing with some serious trauma even though she’s out of the Phantom Zone.
The trailer features some kind of dead elemental monster which, according to Kara’s dad in the trailer, is the kind of thing that destroyed Krypton. The trailer also confirms what many fans expected, that Nxyly (Peta Sergeant) is back to cause problems for our hero.
Robert Rovner, one of the showrunners of Supergirl, discussed how the Phantom Zone should have a lasting impact on Kara with ComicBook.com previously, where he said:
“Well, I mean it impacts her in a very profound way. You know, I think that the Phantom Zone she faces this time around is much more unkind than last time, last time she was protected in her pod, and this time she’s there and being impacted by the Phantoms that roam the Phantom Zone and give the Phantom Zone its name and they deplete people of their hope.”
He went on to say, “So, she doesn’t have powers there and so she’s much more vulnerable than we’ve ever seen her and really, her journey and the Phantom Zone is how does she keep hope alive when she doesn’t know if she’s going to get out of it or not? And it seems very possible that she will never get out. And for our heroes left in National City, you know, they’re faced with that same reality that they might never get Supergirl back. And so the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been, and the emotions are higher than they’ve ever been.”
