Based on the DC character, Supergirl aka Kara Zor-El (series star MELISSA BENOIST) decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always meant to be on Warner Bros. Television series, SUPERGIRL.
When she was 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to earth where she was protected and raised by her foster parents, Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers (guest stars DEAN CAIN and HELEN SLATER) and her foster sister, Alex (series star CHYLER LEIGH). Under their supervision, Kara learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, in order to keep her identity a secret.
Years later, Kara was living a "normal" life in National City, assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (recurring guest star CALISTA FLOCKHART) and working beside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott (series star JEREMY JORDAN) and famous Daily Planet photographer James Olsen (series star MEHCAD BROOKS), who Grant hired away from Metropolis. When Alex's life was threatened in a plane crash, Kara took to the sky to rescue her. In the aftermath, Kara decided she could no longer sit on the sidelines and revealed herself as Supergirl.
She now balances her job at CatCo with her work at the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government agency where Alex also works. At first, the head of the DEO, Hank Henshaw (series star DAVID HAREWOOD), was resistant to Supergirl joining the DEO, until it was revealed that Hank was actually J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter, who had promised Jeremiah Danvers on his deathbed that he would protect both Alex and Kara. It has since been discovered that Jeremiah is actually alive and being held by Cadmus, a dangerous quasi-military organization that sees all aliens as threats.
In Season One, Supergirl soared fighting crime and battling various villains, chief among them two Kryptonians who were intent on destroying earth, but she has yet to find that same purpose as Kara Danvers.
Now, in Season Two, Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant's assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO, protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman (guest star TYLER HOECHLIN) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.
