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.
