  • Actor Shared Background: Like Nia Nal, Nicole Maines is a transgender woman.
  • Black Sheep Hit: Despite, or indeed because of, its initial setting of Earth-38, as opposed to the continuity heavy Earth-1, the show got a lot of fans beyond those who simply watch every Arrowverse show.
  • Channel Hop: Aired on CBS in Season 1 and moved to The CW starting in Season 2.
  • Exiled From Continuity: As Warner Brothers doesn't like having characters appearing in films and television shows at the same time, there are periods where Superman, despite how useful he could be, is not allowed to be be shown. It's most keenly felt in Season 3.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot:
    • Astra was unceremoniously killed in Episode 13 owing to Laura Benanti's Broadway commitments. Repeated in Season 4 when Melissa Benoist was performing in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical stuffing Kara into full body armor with a blacked out faceplate.
    • Starting in Season 2, Lucy Lane and Maxwell Lord disappeared owing to their actors' unwillingness to move to Vancouver following the Channel Hop. The same goes for Cat Grant but the show at least explained that.
    • In Season 3, Malina Weissman was replaced by Izabela Vidovic. Why? Because Malina was aging and couldn't realistically pass as a preteen Kara anymore.
    • Kara getting pants in Season 5. Melissa Benoist found it cold to constantly wear a skirt in Vancouver.
