Supergirl returns for its sixth and final season on Tuesday, March 30th and now, The CW has released photos from that upcoming season premiere, "Rebirth". The episode will pick up the story from "Immortal Kombat", the episode that served as the Season 5 finale when the coronavirus pandemic shut down television production last year. In that episode, Brainy (Jesse Rath) is able to stop Leviathan by shrinking some of the agents into a container but is unable to stop Lex (Jon Cryer) from taking it for his own use. From the looks of things, the team will be able to save Brainy before facing off with Lex.
Last fall, it was announced that Supergirl's sixth season would be its last so it will be interesting to see how the series deals with Lex as it wraps up the remaining Season 5 storylines and embarks on its final chapter.
"To say it has been an honor portraying this iconic character would be a massive understatement. Seeing the incredible impact the show has had on young girls around the world has always left me humbled and speechless," Benoist wrote on social media shortly after the news broke. "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."
You can check out the synopsis for "Rebirth" below and read on for the photos from the episode.

Knowing how dangerous this makes her brother, Lena (Katie McGrath) enlists the entire team – Alex (Chyler Leigh), J’onn (David Harewood), Dreamer (Nicole Maines), Kelly (Azie Tesfai) and Brainiac – to help, but Supergirl realizes that the only way to truly stop Lex is to sacrifice herself.
