Supergirl season 6 release date, start time

Supergirl season 6 starts tonight at 9 p.m. ET today — and airs regularly on Tuesday nights.
It's on The CW. 

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Supergirl! Tonight, we watch Supergirl season 6 online and on The CW, with eyes and minds ready for a big conclusion. This is the final season, and we've gotta see how it all goes down. In tonight's season 6 premiere episode, "Rebirth," the action picks up where the fight left off.

Supergirl season 6 continues to follow the high-flying adventures of Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist). Due to pandemic-induced production shutdowns, it's been almost a year since Supergirl fans saw the hero in action, as she and her allies engaged in battle with Lex Luthor (Jon Cryer) and the secret alien society Leviathan.

Brainiac (Jesse Rath) is close to dying, but Supergirl soars in to take on Gamenmae (guest star Cara Buono). After defeating Leviathan, she turns her attention to Lex, who's used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world into loving him. 

Knowing how dangerous her brother is, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) rallies the entire team — Alex (Chyler Leigh), J'onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines) and Kelly (Azie Tesfai) — to help, but Supergirl realizes the only way to stop Lex is to sacrifice herself.

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Supergirl season 6 online. Plus, check out the trailer below:

How to watch Supergirl season 6 anywhere, with a VPN

Just because The CW isn't available everywhere doesn't mean you need to miss Supergirl season 6. Watching along with the rest of the internet can be pretty easy. With the right VPN (virtual private network), you can stream the show from wherever you go.

We've evaluated many options, and the best VPN is ExpressVPN. It meets the VPN needs of the vast majority of users, offering outstanding compatibility with most devices and impressive connection speeds. It's also affordable at $12.95 per month.
