Supergirl had a big presence at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con where cast and producers revealed what we can expect in the third season of the series. Supergirl Radio/DC TV Podcasts participated in the press room for Supergirl this year where Amy Marie Hypnarowski (of The Flash Podcast and Legends of Tomorrow Podcast) chatted with the cast at the round tables to get some new details on Season 3.
One of the cast members who attended was the Girl of Steel herself, Melissa Benoist, who plays the Last Daughter of Krypton. Throughout the round table interview, Benoist teased several things for Kara in Season 3 such as:
-Benoist on how she feels about interacting with passionate female viewers
-What Benoist thinks about Reign coming to the third season to stir some trouble for the Girl of Steel
-How Benoist felt about bringing Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant in Season 2 and teasing her role in the Season 3 premiere
-The addition of Erica Durance taking over for Laura Benanti as Alura Zor-El in Season 3
-What it feels like to be on The CW now instead of CBS and how the network feels like a safe home with the other DCTV shows
-A tease about this year’s crossover event with the other shows in the DCTV Universe
“SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, (Melissa Benoist) Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin 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. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and 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 the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, Kara was living in National City and still concealing her powers, when a plane crash threatened Alex’s life and Kara took to the sky to save her. Now, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats. At the DEO, Kara works for J’onn J’onzz (David Harewood), the Martian Manhunter, and alongside her sister, Alex, and best friend, Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan). Also in Kara’s life are media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), a photo journalist who moonlights as Guardian, a masked vigilante, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath), and Mon-El of Daxam (Chris Wood), whose planet was ravaged by Krypton’s destruction. As Kara struggles to navigate her relationships and her burgeoning life as a reporter, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.”
Supergirl Season 3 premieres on Monday, October 9 at 8/7c on The CW!
