Tonight: “Supergirl” on The CW Network (10/9/2017)

While I am still rather sore from the past few days at the New York Comic Con, it’s time to put the nose to the grindstone and get all of these awesome television pieces up and in your attention visuals. This one is to remind you that at 8PM (EST) will begin the third season of The CW Network’s “Supergirl” show. You might remember that it aired for one season on CBS but now is firmly ensconced on The CW. Below you will find the series poster, a second season overview and some casting. I’ll close out with some thoughts before sending you on your way to other posts across the web.

Season 2 Recap: In the second season, Kara and her allies deal with feuds between Earth’s native populace and extraterrestrial community, and investigate the shadowy organization Project Cadmus, masterminded by Lillian Luthor, mother of Superman’s archenemy Lex Luthor. At the same time, Kara becomes friendly with Lillian’s stepdaughter Lena Luthor, the new CEO of LuthorCorp, and struggles with romantic feelings for recent Earth arrival Mon-El, a survivor and prince from Krypton’s neighboring planet Daxam. James becomes the masked streetfighting vigilante Guardian; Alex begins dating Maggie Sawyer; and J’onn befriends a younger Martian, M’gann, from the White Martian race that killed his people.

“Look up in the sky, and on a different network, its a bird, its a plane its Supergirl!!!!” Yes my friends, CBS might have let go of the “Supergirl” live action series but now its a part of The CW and I think in a much better place since its in the company of “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “Legends Of Tomorrow”. Check out the shows premise recap and some cast and then I’ll return with some thoughts.

The Premise/Recap:
Kara Zor-El was sent to Earth from the doomed planet Krypton as a 12-year-old by her parents Zor-El (Robert Gant) and Alura (Laura Benanti). Alura gave her instructions to protect her infant cousin Kal-El, and informed her that she, like her cousin, would have extraordinary powers under Earth’s yellow sun. En route to Earth, Kara’s spacecraft was diverted by a shock wave from Krypton’s explosion and forced into the Phantom Zone, where it stayed for 24 years. During this period, time stopped for Kara so, when the spacecraft eventually escaped the Phantom Zone, she still appeared to be a 13-year-old girl. By the time the spacecraft crash landed on Earth, Kal-El had grown up and become Superman. After helping her out of the craft, Superman took Kara to be adopted by his friends, the Danvers family. The main series begins eleven years later when the now 24-year-old Kara is learning to embrace her powers after previously hiding them.

Kara hid her powers for more than a decade, believing that Earth didn’t need another hero. However, she has to reveal her powers to thwart an unexpected disaster, setting her on her own journey of heroism as National City’s protector. Kara discovers that hundreds of the criminals her mother prosecuted as a judge on Krypton are hiding on Earth, including her mother’s twin sister Astra (also played by Benanti) and Astra’s husband Non (Chris Vance), who seek to rule the world. After briefly becoming suspicious of the true agenda of her boss, Hank Henshaw, she and her adoptive sister, Alex Danvers, secretly discover that Henshaw is actually a benevolent alien refugee, J’onn J’onzz, who has resided on Earth for over fifty years after escaping a holocaust on his homeworld of Mars. J’onn infiltrated the DEO to reform the organization as well as to watch over both Alex and Kara in addition to guiding the latter in the use of her powers due to his experience with his own abilities. Kara is also being targeted by Earth’s criminals as the result of her being related to Superman, and later on encounters an emerging community of metahumans and individuals from parallel universes. In the process, Kara accumulates her own rogues gallery who seeks to defeat and destroy her. She is aided by a few close friends and family who guard her secrets—most notably her cousin’s longtime friend, James Olsen —which also serves as a major plot in high tech mogul Maxwell Lord’s scheme to expose Kara’s identity.
