Melissa Benoist is back to work on the set of Supergirl on Thursday (March 4) in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The 32-year-old actress was joined for scenes by her co-star David Harewood, who plays Martian Manhunter.

This is the first time we’ve seen Melissa out since she welcomed her first child, Huxley, last fall. Her pregnancy pushed back production on the series, and pushed back the premiere date, which has yet to be announced.

That day, David shared a selfie with Melissa, both masked up in between takes.

“Back to work. @melissabenoist #MartianManhunter,” he captioned the photo. Check it out below!

The Supergirl cast actually started working on the upcoming final season back in October, but this is the first time we’ve seen photos of them on set.

If you missed it, though Melissa will be stepping away from Supergirl, this actress has been cast as the character in an upcoming DC movie, making history. Melissa even sent her love and support for the casting!

Melissa Benoist is continuing working with Warner Bros!

It was just announced that the 32-year-old Supergirl star has inked an overall deal with the company, who also produces her CW show, and is launching her own production company, Deadline reveals.

Melissa will start up Three Rings Productions “to develop and produce original television shows, including comedies and dramas, for all platforms including HBO Max, third party streamers, cable networks and broadcast nets.”

“I’ve had a wonderfully supportive home at Warner Bros. for the last six years, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to put on a producer’s hat and continue working with them,” she said in a statement.

“I approach my work as an actor in search of that magic gut feeling you get when you know something is right,” she continued. “I plan on following those instincts as a producer, approaching each story with passion, playfulness, curiosity, a sure-footed step, and like all things worth taking a risk on, a hint of terror. I can’t wait to collaborate with new voices and find stories that hit the heart in that indefinable way.”

Melissa will star as Supergirl for a final sixth season, which is set to premiere midseason on The CW. No premiere date has been revealed as of yet.

The show was pushed back due to her welcoming her first child last fall.

Supergirl is coming to an end in 2021!

The hit CW series, starring Melissa Benoist, will end after the show’s upcoming season six.

Production on the series was pushed back for the new season due to Melissa‘s pregnancy, and it will premiere later than the rest of the Arrowverse shows.

She also took to Instagram to confirm the news.

“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,” Melissa wrote.

“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,” she continued.

“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. ♥️ el mayarah 💪 @supergirlcw,” Melissa concluded.

Supergirl's Melissa Benoist Discusses White Privilege & Says This 'Isn't the World I Want' for Her Child

Supergirl's Melissa Benoist Discusses White Privilege & Says This 'Isn't the World I Want' for Her Child

Melissa Benoist is getting candid about the Black Lives Matter protests, as well as her white privilege.

The 31-year-old Supergirl star, who is pregnant with her first child with Chris Wood, spoke out on her Instagram on Saturday (May 30).

“I have struggled with the words to use, I thought words didn’t belong in this fight, that I didn’t have the right to talk about the issue of privilege of being white, because I didn’t have lived experience of being a person of color in the United States. I’ve felt helpless in not knowing how to take action. I was afraid of messing up, of saying the wrong thing. No more. I made a promise to a friend of mine this week that I would not be silent anymore, that I would stand in solidarity with my voice and my actions, not just my heart. That’s not just a promise to him. This burden is too much for black people to bear alone anymore. I am beyond ashamed that they have had to for so long,” she wrote.

“I’m about to bring a child into this world, and this isn’t the world I want him to know. I want to be a part of a generation that actually ensures change, so that my son’s generation does not have to endure this kind of heartbreak, so that his generation will know the truths of white privilege and how to combat it. His parents will educate him as best we can while we simultaneously educate ourselves.”

Last year, Melissa bravely opened up about this experience.
