A new photo from Supergirl’s Season 1 has been released, featuring Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan Tatum), Lois Lane’s younger sister, who comes back to town to right a previous wrong.
“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” executive producer Ali Adler tells EW. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”
Supergirl takes flight on Monday, October 26th at 08:30 PM on CBS, then moves to its regular 08:00 PM slot the next week.
Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics 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.
Based on characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Comics, with executive producers Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
