With Supergirl moving to The CW, there are so many questions fans have ahead of season 2: How different will the show be? Who’s in the pod? Who’s the new big bad? But seriously, who’s in the pod?! We hope to get some answers on that and much more during the Supergirl panel at Comic-Con on Saturday. To prepare for the big event, EW is here to give you a refresher on where the super series ended its freshman season:
Where we left off: After facing off against her mind-controlled sister Alex (Chyler Leigh), and freeing National City’s residents from Myriad with a rousing and hopeful speech, Kara (Melissa Benoist) went up against Non (Chris Vance) and Indigo (Laura Vandervoort) with the help of Hank (David Harewood). To prevent the villains from killing every human on Earth, Kara needed to fly Fort Rozz into space, which was effectively a suicide mission, forcing her to bid farewell to her friends and family. But an eleventh hour save from Alex in Kara’s Kryptonian space pod provided a happy ending for all — until an identical pod arrived carrying mysterious cargo.
What we know about season 2: Whoever arrived in that pod will play an “important role” in season 2, according to EP Andrew Kreisberg, who teases that Project Cadmus, a mysterious organization that appears to be holding the seemingly alive Jeremiah Danvers, will be a focal point. The show will also explore a much more confident Kara in a relationship with James (Mehcad Brooks), while Kara finds her new place at CatCo. Notable season 2 additions include Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, Floriana Lima as gay DC Comics character Detective Maggie Sawyer, Ian Gomez as Snapper Carr, and Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, who will play the president of the United States. And don’t forget that Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl will cross over for an epic event in December.
