“Supergirl” Season 3 Begins October 9

The CW has announced that Season 3 of “Supergirl” will premiere on Monday, October 9 at 8.00pm.

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, (Melissa Benoist) 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 (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, Kara was living in National City and still concealing her powers, when a plane crash threatened Alex’s life and Kara took to the sky to save her. Now, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats. At the DEO, Kara works for J’onn J’onzz (David Harewood), the Martian Manhunter, and alongside her sister, Alex, and best friend, Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan). Also in Kara’s life are media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), a photo journalist who moonlights as Guardian, a masked vigilante, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath), and Mon-El of Daxam (Chris Wood), whose planet was ravaged by Krypton’s destruction. As Kara struggles to navigate her relationships and her burgeoning life as a reporter, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Based on characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, SUPERGIRL is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Robert Rovner (“Private Practice,” “Dallas”) and Jessica Queller (“Gilmore Girls,” “Gossip Girl,” “Felicity”).

Nice. They should trim the number of episodes from 22 to 16 so as to more finely focus the season plot and help redistribute the budget.

I agree with that 100%, but I think it’s a network thing that they have to stretch it out to 22 episodes. I don’t know the specifics of it, but it’s something along the lines of “we will give you X amount of money per episode of you give us X amount of episodes.” I think that’s how most networks pay, by the episode not by the season, and for a certain amount of episodes. That way they can cut losses if ratings tank. Like I said agree, I really think they should cut it to 10, but the network… Read more »

Glad the premiere date is October 9 this year because that happens to be one of my cousins birthday.

I’m personally hoping that Supergirl and all the DC shows up their game.
The previous seasons of Supergirl and Flash were enjoyable to me, but this season seemed more like a chore I had to do rather than something I wanted to do. I ended up dropping all the shows after the mid season break, I wasn’t interested enough to tune back in after that.

You can always have a few two-part episodes to make up the difference and to further focus on one topic!!

Season 2 did for me begin to fall into the trap of spending too much time as a detective / mystery show. The show is Supergirl not Columbo so lets have Supergirl in action more. If budget not there for extensive sfx, then park Supergirl. Lois & Clark suffered from above, be sad to see Supergirl fall away ratings wise.
