Supergirl And Her Super Friends Return In First Photos Of Season 5

SupergirlĀ is going to be in some major turmoil in season five as Lena (Katie McGrath) grapples with the revelation that Kara (Melissa Benoist) is Supergirl.

The first episode of the fifth season “Event Horizon” will see the fallout of this as, what Benoist calls, “the fight for Lena’s soul” begins.

The first pictures for the premiere, however, are not showing us much of Miss Luthor. In fact, McGrath doesn’t appear in any at all.

Instead it’s solo shots of Kara, Alex (Chyler Leigh), Nia (Nicole Maines), Brainy (Jesse Rath), and J’onn (David Harewood) as they stand in what looks like an empty theatre. It’s possible that they’re battling the “living darkness” that is Midnight (Jessica Cheon Garcia), but we just have no info.

Even so, we get more of the Super Pants and Chyler is working that dress Alex is wearing to…whatever this place/event is. Unfortunately, details about the premiere such as a synopsis remain scarce.

So take a look at the pictures below and light a candle to hope that Lena doesn’t go down the path of her brother and adopted mother. (C’mon let her be the morally grey good woman here, people!)
