re­turn­ing SHOW! Su­per­man is com­ing. For long­time DC Comics fans, no other words are needed to de­scribe

Su­per­girl’s sec­ond sea­son. Bar­ring the fi­nal mo­ments of Smal­lville’s fi­nale, the Last Son of Kryp­ton has been miss­ing from live­ac­tion TV since Lois And Clark ended its run back in 1997. that changes with the ad­di­tion of for­mer Teen Wolf ac­tor tyler Hoech­lin to the cast of Su­per­girl.

“What’s im­por­tant on our show is how they teach one an­other and the love be­tween them,” says star Melissa Benoist of Kara Zor-el’s re­la­tion­ship with her leg­endary cousin. “they’re two sur­viv­ing mem­bers of a dy­ing race.”

With sea­son two, Su­per­girl’s pro­duc­tion re­lo­cates from Los An­ge­les to Van­cou­ver, fol­low­ing the show’s move from its US TV home on CBS to the CW. now one of four DC shows on the su­per­hero-friendly network, Su­per­girl will cross over with The Flash, Ar­row and Leg­ends Of Tomorrow. “i had so much fun do­ing the cross­over with grant [gustin],” says Benoist of her first sea­son team-up with the Scar­let Speed­ster, “that i’m ex­cited for any­thing and ev­ery­thing they throw at us.”

Other new­com­ers this sea­son in­clude Flo­ri­ana Lima as the crime­bust­ing Mag­gie Sawyer and ian gomez as news­man Snap­per Carr. Aside from Su­per­man, how­ever, the big­gest ad­di­tion is the orig­i­nal DC TV hero­ine her­self – Won­der Woman Lynda Carter – as the Pres­i­dent of the united States.

“Ah­hhh! it’s amaz­ing,” en­thuses Benoist. “i haven’t met her yet, but i plan on pick­ing her brain. i can’t wait to meet her. i’m psyched!”
