TVline.com gave out some additional information on the character of Maggie Sawyer, who will be played by Floriana Lima in the second season of “Supergirl”.
In short, Maggie “is an ally,” says showrunner Andrew Kreisberg. As a detective with the Science Police – aka the division of the NCPD that deals with “anything that’s out of the ordinary” – “We’ll be bumping into Maggie a lot, and questions of jurisdiction will be coming up,” he adds. “Maggie is a strong proponent for alien rights, which is going to be [a theme].” (Alas, when we tried to bait Kreisberg with the notion that Maggie and Alex will at first lock horns only to later share sparks of a different kind, he… indicated nothing.)
The second season of “Supergirl” will premiere on Monday, October 10 at 8:00pm on The CW.
