After it’s honestly excellent fourth season, Supergirl will return in a little under a month. We have a lot of to look forward to in the upcoming season and some to mourn as well. We’ll see Mehcad Brooks leave the series, Jeremy Jordan’s return, new castings, and a whole Black Mirror like storyline.
Then, of course, there’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” and the fallout from that.
In the season five premiere “Event Horizon”, we’ll see Kara (Melissa Benoist) deal with Lena (Katie McGrath) learning her secret identity. We also will see her fight against the “living darkness” of Midnight (Jennifer Cheon Garcia).
We have a new batch of photos along with a promo that definitely has us ready to head back to National City. The photos show Kara, James (Brooks), Alex (Chyler Leigh), Nia (Nicole Maines), J’onn (David Harewood), and Brainy (Jesse Rath) at the theatre to presumably confront the latest threat. We also get a nice moment between James and Kelly (Azie Tesfai).
As for the promo? It’s 11-seconds long. Lena wants to know why Kara betrayed her. We get the first chilling look at Midnight. I gotta admit, can’t wait to see the living darkness powers in action.
Check it out below.
Supergirl returns on Sunday, October 6 at 9/8c on the CW.
