To mark the last day of production, star Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers/Supergirl) shared a photo of herself with original castmates Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers/Sentinel) and David Harewood (J’onn J’onzz/Martian Manhunter), with a message saying, 

Thank you for an incredible 6 years—the cast who became family, everyone who worked on the show, all of you who watched us week after week ♥️♥️♥️ that’s a wrap on Supergirl.
