As if the show isn’t bad enough already, now the Supergirl costume gets a change for the worse in Season 5 as The CW released preview images for episode one, “Event Horizon.”
Melissa Benoist also appears to be sporting a new hairdo, which isn’t too flattering as well.
Regarding the change in costume which drops the skirt, Melissa Benoist previously said that it makes the character more adult and shows Kara evolving into a woman.

“I just think it’s more adult,” Benoist told EW.com in July. “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.
“Kara is always evolving and becoming more of a woman,” she said. “It’s so fun to look back on season 1 and see how much she has grown. I just felt an ownership and responsibility, and what I wanted [the role] to mean to other people.”
Supergirl returns Sunday, Oct. 6, at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.
