Supergirl Is Tied Up in New Set Photos Featuring Melissa Benoist & More

Melissa Benoist is hard at work on the final season of her The CW series Supergirl!

The 32-year-old actress was seen tied up while filming an action-packed scene on Tuesday (March 30) in Vancouver, Canada.

Melissa, who plays the title character, was joined on set by co-stars Chyler Leigh, David Harewood, Nicole Maines, and Jesse Rath.

In a new interview with EW, Melissa opened up about the one request she had when producers asked her how she wanted Kara Zor-El’s journey to end.

“They pitched it to me because they wanted to know if I had any input as to where I wanted to see Kara ending up at the end of the series,” she said. “I had one request, and it wasn’t even something they were thinking about doing. They pitched me the end, and it’s really lovely. It’s a great ending. I feel fantastic about it.”

Melissa Benoist Gets To Work On Final Season of 'Supergirl' - First Look Photos!

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!
