SUPERGIRL Star Melissa Benoist Confirms The Girl Of Steel Will Don A New Costume In Season 5

After wearing the same costume for four seasons, it looks like Melissa Benoist's Girl of Steel will finally receive a brand-new look in the upcoming fifth season of Supergirl. Hit the jump for more info.

Both The Flash and Arrow have seen their titular have seen their lead heroes adopt several new costumes in the past few years, but Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl has pretty much remained in the same suit since Season 1. However, it seems that will all change in the upcoming fifth season.

During a chat with director Kevin Smith at Twitch Prime's Apex Legends Crown Cup, the Supergirl star confirmed Kara Danvers will receive a new costume when she returns to the small screen this fall.

While we’ll likely have to wait a bit until we get our first official look at the Girl of Steel’s new look, the actress did reveal that the costume will be ditching the red skirt for a pair of pants.

As Kevin Smith and Melissa Benoist note in the interview, this design change didn’t come out of the blue. After all, even the most recent season of show poked some fun at the impracticality of fighting in a skirt when Red Daughter mocked Kara’s outfit during one of their confrontations.

Plus, as Benoist mentioned, it will undoubtedly be nice to wear some pants while filming scenes during cold Vancouver nights.



Season 5 of Supergirl is scheduled to premiere October 6, 2019 on The CW.
