Kara Danvers and her friends have been through a lot in the last year, but it looks like things are not going to slow down if the Comic-Con trailer for season five is any indication. It has already been announced that Mechad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen) will be leaving the show, but we now have word on some people who will be joining. Three major characters have been added to the show for next season including Meghan Rath as a female Brainiac-5, Julie Gonzalo as Andrea Rojas, a.k.a. Acrata, and Star Nair as an original character named William Dey.
It looks like the series will deal heavily in the fallout of the betrayal that Lana Luthor feels towards kara for her keeping the secret about her true identity. How Lex Luthor will feature into this is unknown, but we now know that he’s definitely back for the new season. Also, we have yet to unravel the mystery that is Leviathan, but as Andrea Brooks has been upped to a series regular as Miss Eve Tessmacher, there’s a good chance that it could be this season’s over-arching big bad.
Supergirl returns to The CW on October 6.
