Critic Reviews for Supergirl Season 5

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (0)

Alien invaders? Lex Luthor? A rabid militia of masked supremacists? Sure, they all put up a decent fight, but Supergirl's previous foes pale in comparison to Season 5's apparent Big Bad: Internet clickbait!

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

I thought it was a solid premiere... the new Supergirl suit was cool, I'm not too red-hot about the new obsidian tech thing, but it might grow on me so that's like a thing to just wait and see how it plays out.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite the inevitable growing pains, Supergirl's fifth season is already shaping up well.

May 11, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

It also points to the refreshing re-centering the show is getting, five seasons in... With the new suit, and a new mission, it looks like that's back on, one leg at a time.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

So you're saying a Lex Luthor and [spoiler] alliance is gonna be a thing on Supergirl now? Sign me up.

May 11, 2020 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Supergirl welcomes some new cast members while still stressing the importance of journalism.

May 11, 2020 | Full Review…

An incredibly solid first-showing for this season of Supergirl.

Oct 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Supergirl isn't the best superhero show on TV - it's not even the best superhero show on The CW - but it's a dependable, solid piece of escapism, with a likeable cast and a sympathetic world view.

Audience Reviews for Supergirl: Season 5

  • Apr 02, 2021
    This was not inspiring
  • Mar 24, 2021
    Don't know why the CW is ending it SMH great show.
  • Feb 01, 2021
    I used to like this series, it handled the diversity of its casts relationships really well as being a part of everyday life as it should be, but this series went into total overdrive and started preaching to the audience with the subtlety of bashing you over the head with a baseball bat to the point where it prompted eyes to the ceiling and tutting, have they employed some Netflix writers? No wonder it is going to be cancelled after the next series. The comic book fun is what sells not the soap opera.
  • Jan 28, 2021
    Terrible writing and acting
  • Jan 14, 2021
    I liked the show Until it got to season 5 Took me a while to get used to be Sexual stuff but that is just how the real world would be. I do not like this Multi universe they got going but I'll have to finish watching the show now I hope Luther kills them all or this earth just blows up or they can fix it go back to earth 1 or 36 Whichever.

    Heck this is the best season
  • Aug 07, 2020
    Lacking of character materials, thus the story is getting boring.
