Supergirl TVO Chyler LeighThis past TV season featured the arrival of another DC Comics television series as Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) step into the light as National City’s own guardian angel: Supergirl. With the series moving to The CW for the second season, a lot of exciting things have already been announced for the Girl of Steel’s second year. Not only will Kara and her friends be joining the larger CW DC Universe, but we will be introduced to a lot of new players.

Last week at San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated in Supergirl Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 2. Chyler Leigh, who plays the butt-kicking Alex Danvers, sister of Supergirl, was one of the great talents we got to speak with as she teased what is coming up in Season 2.

Highlights of the interview:

-Teasing what’s coming up in the father-daughter like relationship for J’onn and Alex.

-Her reaction to finding out that Harewood was actually playing Martian Manhunter instead of Hank Henshaw.

-Whether she may have any scenes and interactions with Lynda Carter’s President.

-Leigh’s excitement about moving to The CW and become part of their universe in the 4-Show crossover.
