CBS has just released a trailer for the fall season debut of the new series Supergirl. The trailer was released in conjunction with their fall season’s line-ups and time slots. Looks like we will be able to see Kara Zor-El beginning in November. The newly acquired series has what looks to be a great cast: Melissa Benoist (as Kara/Supergirl), Calista Flockhart (as Cat Grant) and Mehcad Brooks (as Jimmy Olsen), as well as Helen Slater and Dean Cain, actors who previously portrayed Supergirl and Superman. Their roles will be as Fred and Sylvia Danvers, but they currently are only expected to appear in one episode (likely the debut).
The show is focused on Kara Zor-El, born on the planet Krypton. The destruction and devastation to her homeworld led to Kara being rocketed off the planet and sent to Earth. The 12-year Kryptonian girl is taken in by the Danvers family where she must learn to embrace her new abilities and control her powers, all while lying low to prevent the public knowing her secret. Jump ahead to age 24 (present day) and Kara is ready to reveal herself and her gifts to the world.
Enjoy the trailer and tell us you thoughts in the comments!
