As Supergirl prepares to make its debut on The CW this fall, it’s rolling out all the stops when it comes to introducing some new faces.
In addition to Superman appearing in the second season, TVLine has reported that there are five additional new faces that will be joining the sophomore drama, including the series-regular role of Lex Luthor’s sister.
Lena Luthor “arrives in town to get out from under the shadow of her infamous brother. She’s described as sexy and smart and determined to get what she wants. But what does she want? That remains unclear.”
Another series regular role will be Nick Farrow, who is described as a “’brash leading man’ who butts heads with Kara at CatCo. The son of a famous reporter, Nick is ‘looking to make a name for himself in the news world but the question of whether he can leave behind his former selfish and hedonistic ways will constantly arise. In hanging out with Kara, the hero in Nick might finally come out.'”
The other three roles are recurring and include:
The Doctor: “The diabolical female leader of Project Cadmus who uses her surgical skills to implant prisoners with alien technology.”
Snapper Carr: “A veteran journalist appointed by Cat to remake the news division by going old school (not to be confused with the Justice League sidekick).”
Maggie: “An out and proud detective for the newly formed Science Police, which deals specifically with metahuman and alien threats.”
