It’s official. David Harewood has announced on Twitter that Supergirl, Season 5, will be suspending production in the wake of the growing threat of the Covid-19 virus that is sweeping the planet. So, these will be the last new and officially released images from a new episode until further notice. It’s not surprising and makes perfect sense, especially since Melissa herself is currently pregnant. It’s the smart and responsible thing to do in uncertain times. While it hasn’t yet been officially announced, I’m sure that the other Arrowverse productions will follow suit.
So let’s get to it! In these new images from the next all-new episode, title Alex In Wonderland, we see a new, but not unfamiliar person bearing the Supergirl symbol. In fact, it’s Alex (Chyler Leigh). At least, Alex as she envisions herself in a virtual adventure of her own making, thanks to a pair of Obsidian contact lenses. Meanwhile back in the real world, Kelly (Azie Tesfai) and William (Staz Nair) team up to seriously investigate Lex.
Check it all out below, kids, and don’t worry. We’ll get through all of this craziness together.
That’s what Superfriends do. Cheers!
ALEX TAKES ON A NEW ROLE – Alex (Chyler Leigh) uses a pair of Obsidian contact lenses to visit a virtual National City where she takes on a whole new persona. Meanwhile, Kelly (Azie Tesfai) helps William (Staz Nair) investigate Lex. Kara (Melissa Benoist) deals with difficult news. Tawnia McKiernan directed the episode with story by Rob Wright and teleplay by Jess Kardos & Mariko Tamaki (#516). Original airdate 3/22/2020.
