August 10, 2016: Official Synopsis for Season 2 of “Supergirl”

160627-SupergirlSeason2The CW has released an official plot synopsis for Season 2 of “Supergirl”, hinting that, while working alongside Superman as Supergirl this Season, Kara Danvers is set to take on a different career path at CatCo.

SUPERGIRL
Mondays (8:00-9:00 pm ET) on The CW

Based on the DC character, Supergirl AKA Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero who (she?) was always meant to be on The CW series, “Supergirl.”

When she was 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to earth where she was protected and raised by her foster parents, Jeremiah (Dean Cain) and Eliza Danvers (Helen Slater) and her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh). Under their supervision, Kara 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 a “normal” life in National City, assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) and working beside her friend and IT technician Winslow “Winn” Schott (Jeremy L. Jordan) and famous photographer James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), who Grant hired away from Metropolis’s Daily Planet. When Alex’s life was threatened in a plane crash, Kara took to the sky to rescue her. In the aftermath, Kara decided she could no longer sit on the sidelines and came out as Supergirl. She now balances her job at CatCo with her work at the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government agency where Alex also works. At first, the head of the DEO, Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), was resistant to Supergirl joining the DEO, until it was revealed that Hank was actually J’onn J’onzz, the Martian Manhunter, who had promised Jeremiah Danvers on his deathbed that he would protect both Alex and Kara. It has since been discovered that Jeremiah is actually alive and being held by Cadmus, a dangerous quasi-military organization that sees all aliens as threats. In Season One, Supergirl soared fighting crime and battling various villains, chief among them two Kryptonians who were intent on destroying earth, but she has yet to find that same empowerment as Kara Danvers.

Now, in Season Two, Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant’s assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO, protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.

Distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, SUPERGIRL is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Ali Adler (“The New Normal”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Sarah Schechter (“Blindspot,” “The Mysteries of Laura”). Supergirl is based on the characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and appearing in DC Comics, by special arrangement with the Jerry Siegel Family.

I’m starting to think that it was Superman who was in the space pod at the end of the first season, if it is him the question is why? Hope Steve will do a countdown clock for 2nd season. :)

I’m inclined to agree; it would explain his absence for most of season one better than the malarkey they kept coming up with.

It’s funny, when season one ended I thought what an amazing story that could be if it was baby Kal-El in that pod — who is this Superman guy then? or maybe it’s Kal-El from another universe.

The producers already confirmed that the character Chris Wood is playing is in the pod. Further speculation suggests it might be Mon-El.

Whoever is in the pod will be the catalyst for the show entering the CW universe in my opinion. He will be the big threat. And then whatever Barry does to fix the timeline will merge the two universes. Superman will suddenly be there as will Batman…all my opinion. But I expect permission to use Batman won’t be to far away
