Supergirl Costume for Season 5 Revealed by Melissa Benoist

-

Melissa Benoist has taken to her Instagram account to reveal the Supergirl costume for Season 5, and it looks like she’ll be wearing pants! And that’s not all, as she is sporting bangs in the photo as well.

“We’ve been talking about pants since season 1,” Benoist tells EW. “Every time a writer from the show has come up, and it’s freezing cold in Vancouver, I’m like, ‘Guys, please can I not wear tights?’ I love [Kara’s old costume]. I haven’t changed it because it so works, and I think it is very Kara. I’ve always felt that — until recently, I’m like, ‘Something’s gotta give.’”

Showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said: “A lot of us were passionate about getting Supergirl into pants and out of the short skirt, and we felt like that would be a powerful move, and Melissa is really excited about it. So we just had to find the right moment to design the suit and in between seasons gave us a chance. But this is something we’ve been thinking about for a while.”

Benoist added that the new Supergirl costume gives her more “range of motion” and that it’s more adult. “Part of my goal in this whole series for whenever the show ends, I just want there to be a very clear arc for this character that she evolved as a woman and found her femininity and her adulthood, just a self-discovery.”

Season 5 is a big one for Benoist, as the actress is also making her directorial debut with the 17th episode of the season.

Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series will return to The CW on Sunday, October 6 at 9 p.m.
