We finally have a new trailer for the upcoming CBS series Supergirl! Check it out below:
Melissa Benoist (Glee) stars as the titular caped hero in this latest addition to the already superhero-littered TV world.
For those unfamiliar with Supergirl’s story, the most basic information you need to know is that Supergirl is Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El/Danvers. She possesses similar powers to her cousin, and even wears a similar outfit (as you can obviously see).
The show is the brain child of writer/producer Ali Adler (Chuck) and Arrow and The Flash co-creators Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.
Supergirl premieres on CBS at 8:30pm EST on October 26th, 2015.
Will you be tuning in to see Supergirl when it premiers? Let us know in the comments!
In March, Melissa Benoist‘s Supergirl costume was revealed, and the decision as to where the new superhero series would be premiering was up in the air. Well, that has since changed, and Supergirl will be flying on to CBS this coming fall as the first series to be picked up for the season on that network. Prior to this announcement, they were considering sister network, The CW, and joining Arrow and The Flash.
The season will start as Kara finally comes to terms with who and what she is, and rather than holding back her true nature, embraces her powers to use them as they were intended.
The series will also bring back Superman alum Dean Cain from Lois and Clark, in a yet-to-be-disclosed role and Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant.
Warner Bros. just released the first images from the upcoming pilot of the Supergirl TV series they have in production for CBS. Melissa Benoist (of Glee fame) looks bold and powerful as the Kryptonian super heroine.
Oscar winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha, Alice in Wonderland), came up with Supergirl’s new look for the series.
In designing Supergirl, I wanted to embrace the past, but more importantly, thrust her into the street-style action hero of today,
– Colleen Atwood, costume designer
If this superhero style looks familiar, it’s because Atwood is also the designer behind current hit series based on DC Comics titles, The Flash and Arrow, which air on The CW, a network that is a joint venture between Warner Bros. and CBS.
No word yet on whether Supergirl has been officially picked up by CBS, but production is already underway with Calista Flockhart (Ally McBeal) and Chyler Leigh (Grey’s Anatomy) among the cast.
