The CW wants you to get caught up on the first season of Supergirl, and the network plans to re-air the first season on its channel beginning on August 1st.
The CW will air two episodes each Monday night, leading up to the season two premiere on October 10th at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC character Kara Zor-El, Supermans (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Karas days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
While it does have its ups and downs, the first season is a great introduction to the adventures of Supergirl and for those who are not familiar with this “new show” coming the CW, this is a great way to get caught up. Hopefully, the second season will not deviate too much from what made the first season special.
