The CW’s Girl of Steel had a challenging year this past season on Supergirl as Kara and her friends dealt with Worldkillers and what have you. After a dark season, the super team is getting ready for its fourth season as the cast and producers previewed what is coming up in Season 4 at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
DC TV Podcasts’ Andy Behbakht (The Flash Podcast, Titans Podcast) was fortunate to attend the press room to chat with the cast and producers what to expect in the new season. Two of the great talents present was executive producers Jessica Queller and Rob Rovner. Throughout the roundtable interview, the duo spoke about the following for Season 4:
-The introduction of Nicole Maines as TV’s first transgender superhero Nia Nal a.k.a Dreamer
-How Brainiac 5 will adjust to 2018 as opposed to where he comes from
-Whether or not the Red Daughter storyline will play a big part in Season 4
-Whether or not we will see Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman again sometime this season
“SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, (Melissa Benoist). Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to Earth where she was raised by a foster family. 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, Superman, 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. 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. Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Robert Rovner (“Private Practice,” “Dallas”) and Jessica Queller (“Gilmore Girls,” “Gossip Girl,” “Felicity”).”
Supergirl Season 4 premieres on Sunday, October 14 at 8/7c on The CW!
