SUPERGIRL Comic-Con Panel: The Cast and Producers Talk Season 2

SUPERGIRL stars Melissa Benoist, Mechad Brooks, Jeremy Jordan, Chyler Leigh, and David Harewood — along with executive producer Sara Schecter — took to the stage at San Diego Comic-Con to tease what’s coming up in season 2. Newcomer to the show Tyler Hoechlin — who has been cast as Superman — also made a surprise appearance.

The big news for season 2, of course, revolves around the introduction of Superman, so it was one of the first things that Schecter talked about during the panel. She explained that in season 1 the show was about establishing Kara and about Supergirl and they thought it would confuse matters to have Superman there. But now that the fans know who Kara is, they feel it’s the right time to introduce Clark Kent/Superman. After all, the show is about the family you make and the family you’re born to.

Other highlights:

SUPERGIRL will premiere on Monday, October 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
