Details on Upcoming Red Daughter Story on “Supergirl”

“Supergirl” showrunners/executive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner spoke to about the second half of Season 4 of “Supergirl” and what we can expect from the as-yet unexplored Red Daughter elements of this season.

At this point, we haven’t seen too much of Red Daughter. Will that dangling season 3 thread become even more important in the back half of this season?

ROVNER: Very much more. The Red Daughter story becomes, well not front and center because we have a lot of stories going, but it plays a much bigger role. We’ll get to see a lot more of her and see her origin story in the second half of the season.

What can we expect from that origin story?

ROVNER: It’s cool. We kind of take a different narrative approach to it, so I think that’s exciting. We get to see kind of what is Red Daughter’s core beliefs and why she believes them.

QUELLER: Also, something that you’re going to see is that it may not appear so right now but all of our big bads and storylines are going to dovetail, including Red Daughter. So, they’re all of a piece, and how those pieces fit together are hopefully going to be pretty exciting.
