The CW isn’t taking part in round and is dominating the nerd news cycle this weekend. Supergirl is heading into the ultimate stretch because the upcoming season six would be the present’s final, and actress Peta Sergeant (The Originals) is now a collection common.
Deadline states that Sergeant will play Nyxly, a unusual, fifth-dimensional Imp. Imps are a race of magical tricksters sprinkled all through the DC multiverse and you could recall Mister Mxyzptlk already confirmed up on Supergirl within the type of Peter Gadiot in season two and Thomas Lennon in season 5. Within the comics, Nyxly’s backstory is kind of tragic. She’s a dimension hopper who is continually escaping demise and watched her father die by the hands of fellow Imp Vyndktvx. On the present, the character will change into pals with Kara (Melissa Benoist) and use her energy to assist. With the way in which season 5 ended, group soar wants all the assistance they’ll get.
Season 5 ended with the high-powered Brainiac able to danger all of it to eliminate Leviathan. Season six has him knocking on demise’s door after making an attempt to cease Lex Luthor from doing what Lex Luthor does. After Supergirl beats the crap out of Leviathan, she goes after Lex, who used the Obsidian platform to brainwash the world to his will. Quite a bit to pack in towards the tip for positive.
Sadly, the Berlanti/CW DCTV universe is shedding certainly one of its finest reveals, however issues have run their course. Nonetheless, I feel we’re in for certainly one of Supergirl’s finest seasons. In case you’re going to exit, why not exit with a BANG!
