Supergirl Season 5 has officially started filming, and the titular DC Comics superhero is sporting a new haircut for the occasion.
In a post on Instagram, star David Harewood shared a photo with the season's returning cast, including Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh and Jesse Rath, to commemorate the first day of filming. The photo also reveals that Benoist's Supergirl is now sporting bangs, in a departure from the first four seasons of the DCTV series.

Back at It! First day under my belt, been a tough hiatus, lovely to see everybody today. Long push thru now, probably finish sometime in April, couldn’t wish to spend my days with finer people. Crew and all. Supergirl season 5 is Go Go Go. 👊🏾 @melissabenoist @chy_leigh @jesse_rath
Season 4 ended with Supergirl and her friends teaming up to stop Lex Luthor's final bid to turn the public against her through a clone dubbed Red Daughter. While successful, the season finale teased a rift between Kara and Lex's younger sister Lena.
Of course, with the Arrowverse series poised to return for their biggest crossover yet in "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the returning characters may soon have even bigger threats to handle.
Returning for its fifth season on Sunday, October 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers.
