‘Supergirl’: Everything We Know About CBS’s New Show
With Supergirl set to join TV’s rapidly expanding list of superhero series this fall, CBS is slowly revealing more details about what fans can expect. From the show’s plotline to the growing cast of DC characters set to make an appearance, here’s everything we know about the show so far.
1. The official synopsis
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin, Kara Zor-El, who – after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth – decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
Having escaped the doom planet Krypton and been raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal her powers from the rest of the world. Years later, at 24, she is working as a personal assistant to media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), but longing for something more. Her days of keeping her abilities a secret finally come to an end when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats.
2. The supporting cast
Several other DC Comics characters will join Benoist and the rest of the main cast. Jeremy Jordan will play Winn Schott (pictured above), Kara’s co-worker who has a crush on her and helps her make her signature costume. Mehcad Brooks will play Jimmy Olsen, a Daily Planet reporter who has just been hired as the art director in National City. Meanwhile, Laura Benanti portrays Alura Zor-El, Supergirl’s mother who is presumed dead (along with most of the other Kryptonians).
