When is Supergirl season 5 starring Melissa Benoist coming to Netflix? Fans can expect the new season in May 2020, assuming all goes according to plan.

Supergirl is back! Supergirl season 5 premiered on The CW on Sunday, Oct. 6. With “Crisis of Infinite Earths” happening this season, fans are very interested in finding out when the new season will be added to Netflix.

Unfortunately, we won’t know the exact release date until the midseason premiere, or thereabouts, on The CW, but we do have a good idea when to expect the new season of the hit series based on the popular DC Comics character.

Supergirl season 5, which was renewed last spring, will likely be released on Netflix at the end of May or early June 2020, depending on when the series finale airs on The CW. Netflix and The CW have an existing deal in place that brings new seasons of the series to Netflix eight days after the season finale.

Supergirl season 4 was added to Netflix on May 27, so we’re expecting a similar release date for the new season.

Right now, it’s looking like Supergirl season 5 will be added to the streaming service on Monday, May 25, or Monday, June 1. As we get closer to the finale date, we’ll know the exact date the new season will be available to stream.

Right now, the first four seasons of the series are available to stream on Netflix right now. Make sure you are caught up with the new season before it hits Netflix later this year.

There’s always a chance Supergirl does end earlier than expected. There were 22 episodes in season 4. If there are less in season 5, the season would end earlier in the year, most likely, and then it would be added to Netflix a little bit sooner than May or June 2020.

In addition, you also probably want to be playing close attention to the other DC shows on The CW. All five superhero shows, including The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning, will be involved in some way or another. Batwoman will also be involved, although that’s not coming to Netflix.

With such a big crossover, it’ll be important to understand how each plot development will affect each series. It’s going to be crazy!

Stay tuned for more news about the Supergirl season 5 release date on Netflix!
