Supergirl casts Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor
Fresh on the heels of the news that Calista Flockhart would return — though in a lesser role — for Supergirl‘s second season, EW has confirmed that Katie McGrath has joined the show in the recurring role of Lena Luthor.
As first reported by TVLine, Lena, also known as Lex Luthor’s sister, is set to take over as CEO of the family company, Luthor Corp, after her brother’s sent to jail. (No, the story has no correlation to what happened in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.)
Lena arrives in National City hoping to use her family’s empire for good. So perhaps she’s nothing like her brother? That’s something Kara will have to figure out.
Supergirl season 2 premieres Monday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
