The first footage for Supergirl‘s second season is here in this brand new trailer!
The show is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, 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.
Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret.
Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director.
However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats.
Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
Mark your calendars – Supergirl premieres on Monday, October 10 @ 8/7c on The CW!
Tyler Hoechlin grins as he steps out for a meal at Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Grill & Jazz on Friday (September 9) in Los Angeles.
The 29-year-old Supergirl actor recently revealed some behind-the-scenes secrets about filming his flying scenes for his role as Superman using wires and a green screen.
“I wouldn’t use the word difficult,” Tyler told Entertainment Weekly. “I would use the word painful after hour seven or eight. It’s a harness that’s not necessarily the most comfortable thing to wear. It really only holds you up with two straps and they go from the back part of your waist, through the legs, up to the front part of the waist, and so it’s just not the most comfortable way to be supporting your entire body weight for that amount of time.”
Tyler added, “No falling upside down, none of that yet. I’ve spared myself embarrassment for the moment. So far I’m one for one, so we’ll see if day two brings any problems.”
“At the end of the day, you’re flying around in a Superman costume – it’s really hard to complain,” he shared.
Season two of Supergirl premieres October 10 on The CW.
Tyler Hoechlin waits for his cue off camera while shooting new scenes for Supergirl on Wednesday (August 3) in Vancouver, Canada.
The 28-year-old actor was sporting some new armor and a shield over his iconic emblem on his suit for the scenes.
Speaking during Comic-Con, the show’s executive producer Sarah Schechter opened up about how season two will open up not just a new story about Kara but a different story about Clark Kent as well.
“There’s nothing more complicated than being a thirteen-year-old girl on any planet, so to be thirteen and to lose everyone you know and everything — I mean, she’s a refugee and she has the depth of her backstory,” Sarah shared. “Clark grew up here. He was a baby here. For him, the tragedy is that he doesn’t have any memories of that planet, of where he’s from. But she does, and I think it informs her in a really interesting way.”
She added, “It just gives us a different window into Kara and frankly, into Clark — a Superman that people haven’t met before is a Superman who has Supergirl in his life. So I think it’s fun to see both of them.”
