Melissa Benoist Opens Up About 'Supergirl's Second Season

Melissa Benoist has been keeping busy since announcing her divorce from husband Blake Jenner.

The 27-year-old actress was spotted filming scenes on the set of her show Supergirl on Friday (January 6) in Vancouver, Canada.

Melissa recently opened up about what’s going to happen during the rest of Supergirl‘s second season.

“For the rest of this season, what the writers have been doing really well is relating the show to a lot of things going on in our country right now and bringing up issues of equality,” she told The Denver Post.

Melissa added, “So I appreciate how every single character on our show just stands up for loving each other and sticking together, no matter where you come from, whatever your skin color, species, planet or sexuality — whatever it is, it doesn’t matter. You deserve love and can stand up for what’s right. So you’ll see a lot more of that.”

Melissa Benoist Dishes on CW's 'Heroes Vs Aliens' Crossover!

Melissa Benoist‘s Heroes Vs Aliens crossover event between Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is airing later tonight!

“It’s really exciting to have everyone in one place. I think we’re all really proud of our shows,” the 28-year-old star of Supergirl recently said in an interview. “It’s a weird feeling to be in a room with bunch of people wearing superhero outfits and it’s not like a costume party. It was a cool feeling. And it was basically everyone – everyone, there’s so many people.”

“I can’t wait for people to see it, but I also was excited to fly in front of everyone. There were a few really awkward attempts, so I did kind of fall on my butt a little bit in front of everyone. But it was a fun; It was a supportive atmosphere,” Melissa added.

Watch the extended trailer for the episode if you missed it! And be sure to tune in tonight at 8pm EST on The CW to catch the episode.
