Supergirl: Coming to an End After Season 6!


Supergirl will soon fly someplace far, far away from television fans.

But any time too soon at least.

The CW announced on Tuesday that the beloved drama will come to an end after the upcoming sixth season.

It’s unclear at this juncture whether the network yanked the plug or producers decided to move on from the series — but Supergirl will soon begin production on the final 20 episodes of what has been an enjoyable run.

“To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement,” star Melissa Benoist wrote in an Instagram post after the news broke.

Along with Benoist, the show stars Chyler Leigh, Katie McGrath, Jesse Rath, Nicole Maines, Andrea Brooks, Azie Tesfai, Julie Gonzalo, Staz Nair and David Harewood. Previous stars included Mehcad Brooks, Jeremy Jordan, Chris Wood, Floriana Lima, Odette Annable and Calista Flockhart.

Continued Benoist in her message:

“Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless. She’s had that impact on me, too. 

“She’s taught me strength I didn’t know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we’re united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better.

“She has changed my life for the better, and I’m forever grateful.”

Supergirl‘s first season, which debuted in October 2015 on CBS, averaged 7.7 million total viewers and a 1.7 demo rating (in Live+Same Day numbers).

Upon being switched to The CW for Season 2, it slipped to a 2.4 million/0.7, which was expected with the change of networks.

For Season 5?

The show fell to 840,000 total viewers and a 0.22 demo rating, down a full 30 percent from Season 4.

Wrote Benoist of portraying Supergirl:

“She’s had that impact on me, too.

“She’s taught me strength I didn’t know I had, to find hope in the darkest of places, and that we are stronger when we’re united. What she stands for pushes all of us to be better.

“She has changed my life for the better, and I’m forever grateful.”

The actress also sounds confident about how the series will wrap up in 2021, concluding:

I’m so excited that we get to plan our conclusion to this amazing journey, and I cannot wait for you to see what we have in store.

I promise we’re going to make it one helluva final season.

Mario Dedivanovic Invested “Everything” Into His Makeup Line At Sephora

Things were very different when I spoke to Mario Dedivanovic at the Lowes Regency Hotel in New York City last December. Dedivanovic, joined by his team and his mother, gave me an emotional first look at his collaboration with Sephora, the same retailer where he started his makeup career 20 years ago. For the collaboration, Dedivanovic curated a 14-piece brush collection inspired by his decades of expertise. 

The timing of the collaboration was precious to Dedivanovic, who at the time had just given an emotional speech at the American Influencer Awards about self-acceptance. “I have a strong connection to Sephora, and I really feel like they saved my life,” he told me.

During our conversation, the influential makeup artist let me in on his ultimate goal: launching a makeup collection of his own. “Without the X,” as he put it, referring to his history of collaborations. A tight-lipped Dedivanovic couldn’t share more details, but he promised that the collection, a culmination of his 20 years of artistry, would be worth the wait.

Fast forward to September 2020, and while the world has shifted dramatically, Dedivanovic has stayed true to his vision. His first-ever makeup brand, Makeup By Mario, is officially launching at Sephora on October 1. This time, instead of swiping and swatching the luxe collection in person, he excitedly shared the products with me over Zoom. “I invested everything I have into this collection,” Dedivanovic said to me tearfully. “I didn’t take on any investors, so if this doesn’t work out, I’m going back to my parents’ house.”

Dedivanovic’s passion shines through every detail of his first collection, which features a core line of products that will appeal to both professional artists and everyday makeup lovers. There are multiple eyeshadow palettes, with velvety powders that range from shimmery olive to matte dusty rose; multi-purpose highlighters in flattering shades of gold, silver, and rose; and eye primers, pro brushes, and makeup remover wipes to apply (and take it all off) with ease. “This line is all based on my techniques and philosophies as a makeup artist,” he says to me. “I wanted these products to feel easy to use for artists and non-artists. It was important for me to bridge that gap.”

Each item in the collection is outfitted in sleek white packaging, a decision …read more

Quarantine Might Be Ruining Your Relationship. Here’s How To Save It

This year, we’ve learned that being cooped up indoors is a small price to pay to help halt the alarming spread of coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19. But that doesn’t mean it’s always fun. It can be boring, it can be lonely, it can be anxiety-provoking — and if you’ve been shut in with a romantic partner, it can be downright aggravating too. So aggravating, in fact, that the city of Xi’an in China, where there’ was a semi-lockdown of several districts earlier this year, saw an “unprecedented number of divorce appointments” after the marriage registration office reopened on March 1, reports the Global Times.

Not to be a downer, but it kind of makes sense. Pre-COVID-19, many people only really hung out with their live-in partners for a few hours at night, plus weekends. But during periods of self-quarantining and social distancing in the US, many made the transition to 24/7 contact — no breaks — which was tough. It also threw any incompatibilities into sharp focus. And now we’re more than half a year into this thing, and tensions are high.

But fear not, you can absolutely flatten the curve while keeping your relationship intact.

Recruit extra help

Proof that tons of people are going through relationship issues caused by quarantine? The prevalence of apps and programs popping up that are in the relationship-repair genre. There’s Rise, a program designed to help couples develop “relational intelligence.” “I think of it as a halfway point between ‘actual date’ and ‘couples counseling‘,” one Refinery29 writer said. Another goodie: Relationship Hero, which offers group couples therapy sessions in addition to one-on-one relationship counseling. Or go old-school, and take this time to sign up for an actual couples therapist. Plenty of them are offering virtual sessions right now.

Ask this question

“What are you expecting from me over the next few days?” Rachel Sussman, LCSW, a licensed psychotherapist and relationship expert, tells Refinery29. This conversation starter helps open the door to a discussion about each person’s needs, and areas where you can compromise.

For instance, you may assume that the two of you will be chatting throughout the day, while your partner is working from home and wants to save the small talk until after 5 p.m. Knowing this ahead of time will help you avoid …read more
