Supergirl Returns In New Season 3 Promo Images


Supergirl season 3 looks to be the most dramatic run of the show yet. In the wake of losing Mon-El at the end of season 2, Kara Zor-El will be in a dark place which leads her to ditching her everyday Kara Danvers persona and focusing on her life as Supergirl. Which is probably for the best, too, as new dangers are heading to National City this season – some of which can be glimpsed in these new promo images (below) from the upcoming season premiere, “Girl of Steel.”

The photos reveal that the episode will feature some kind of Supergirl Celebration Day hosted by Lena Luthor. However, it looks like things go awry, as Kara and Martian Manhunter are pictured standing in the middle of a scared-looking crowd. Kara’s sister Alex and her fiancee Maggie Sawyer are also caught up in the chaos. As is a new important face in Supergirl’s world…

Yes, these images offer us our best look yet at Odette Annable as Reign, season 3’s big bad. In contrast to previous Supergirl villains, Reign will be a much more layered antagonist. Since crashing to Earth from Krypton as a baby, “Sam” has grown up not knowing of her origins as a Worldkiller and has a daughter named Ruby (also featured in the photos). Longterm CW superhero fans might recall something similar being done with Doomsday on Smallville, as Sam Witwer’s Davis Bloome was initially a good guy before his inner Kryptonian monster came out.

Speaking of Smallville, the premiere will see that’s show Lois Lane, Erica Durance, take up the role of Alura Zor-El, Kara’s mother, previously played by Laura Bernanti back in season 1. Going by the wavy gowns and the fact that Kara is coming face to face with her dead mom, it looks like Durance will appear in some kind of dream sequence.

Make sure to catch Supergirl‘s season 3 premiere when it returns to The CW on Monday, October 9th.
