Plot Synopsis

Based on characters from DC Comics, SUPERGIRL follows the adventures of Kara Danvers (aka Supergirl). Born on the planet Krypton as Kara Zor-El, she escaped amid its destruction years ago when her birth mother, Alura Zor-El, sent her across space. Since arriving on Earth and being taken in by the Danvers, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Kara works as an assistant to Cat Grant, a self-made media magnate and founder of CatCo, who started her career as a reporter and has built her company into a global powerhouse. At CatCo, she also works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and James Olsen, a former photographer at the "Daily Planet" who recently is Cat's new art director and has been living and working in National City -- though the reason is still a secret. Kara's foster sister, Alex, has been fascinated by Kara's powers from a young age, and had developed a lifelong obsession with science, inspiring her to become a doctor. As Kara accepts her fate as Supergirl, she also protects the citizens of National City from sinister threats, helping Hank Henshaw, a onetime CIA agent who now runs the Department of Extra-Normal Operations, which tracks extraterrestrial threats on the planet Earth. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Dean Cain and Helen Slater, who respectively portrayed Superman on TV and Supergirl in the movies, have been cast in the pilot. Season 2 of SUPERGIRL premiered on Monday, October 10, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT on a new network, The CW, with the season opener, "The Adventures of Supergirl, based on a story by Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman, to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth. Season 3 of SUPERGIRL premiered on Monday, October 9, 2017 at 8pm ET/PT on The CW. In the season opener, "Girl of Steel," Kara deals with the loss of Mon-El by focusing all her energy on being Supergirl and the mysterious new threat against National City.

Season 4 of SUPERGIRL premiered on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 8pm ET/PT on The CW. In the season opener, "American Alien," Kara welcomes a new cub reporter to CatCo. Meanwhile, James and Lena argue about James' impending indictment for acting as the vigilante Guardian, while Alex and Brainy struggle to get in sync at the DEO. Supergirl is called into action when remnants of the anti-alien terrorist organization Cadmus try to assassinate pro-alien leaders, but their endgame turns out to be much more sinister than she expected. J'onn relishes his peaceful new life, but an outing with an old friend causes him concern.
