Is the End of ‘Supergirl’ a New Start for Dreamer? Nicole Maines Hints We May See Her Again
Arrowverse fans everywhere are lamenting over the end of an era. Supergirl will conclude after the show’s forthcoming sixth season. Social media has been buzzing with reactions from the cast, including Nicole Maines, who brought a little hope for the future of her character.
The cast and crew will work to give ‘Supergirl’ a fitting ending
The news that Supergirl will soon take its final bow comes as a blow to the loyal audience. But fans can find solace in the fact that the creative minds behind the story have ample time to craft a satisfying ending.
The decision came before season 6 production could get off the ground. According to Deadline, the cast and crew aim to begin filming in early fall in Vancouver, British Columbia. The timing of the announcement gives the writers, producers, and stars an opportunity to create an ending that solidifies the legacy of the show and the characters.
Is the end of ‘Supergirl’ a new beginning for Dreamer?
Maines joined Supergirl as a series regular — and television trailblazer — in season 4. The star portrays Nia Nal, a journalist turned superhero who also happens to be transgender.
The character’s Naltorian lineage on her mother’s side gives her the power to dream the future. Hence, she took on the moniker of Dreamer. Aside from her precognition skills, Nia possesses superhuman strength and the abilities to astral project and manipulate energy in the physical world. Many of her storylines inspired, encouraged, and enlightened viewers of the show.
Now that Supergirl is ending, fans are bummed to lose a character they came to adore. But, in an Instagram post, Maines hinted that it might not be the end of the road for Nia Nal.
Maines began by saying, “While I’m sad that this must come to an end, I am beyond happy and proud. I am proud that I have been privileged enough to be able to bring Nia Nal to life, and to have been able to be a part of her evolution into Dreamer. She has meant so much to so many, and it has been my complete honor to get to play her for the past few years. And though she was created especially for Supergirl, I think we can all agree that we haven’t seen the last of her, and I cannot wait to see where she pops up next.”
Nicole Maines expressed ‘love and gratitude’
In her sincere statement, Maines went on to express “love and gratitude” for her Supergirl colleagues, who she called “more than my friends.” She also gave a shout-out to the fans, saying, “Nia would not have been such a hit if you all didn’t love her and support her the way that you have. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
In a heartfelt finish, Maines teased a great sixth season. She wrote, “This has truly been a dream(er) job. I cannot wait for you all to see what we have in store for you this season (it’s going to be WILD DOT COM), and I cannot wait for us all to see what comes next. There will be more. Trust me, I saw it in a Dream.”
