The CW released the first official trailer for Supergirl Season 4 at Comic-Con, check it out below.
It was also announced that Nicole Maines was cast as Nia Nal, “the newest addition to the CatCo reporting team. A soulful young transgender woman with a fierce drive to protect others, Nia’s journey this season means fulfilling her destiny as the superhero Dreamer (much like Kara came into her own as Supergirl).”
April Parker-Jones (Jericho, The Last Ship) will play a hardline career military woman named Colonel Haley “who lives and dies by the orders of her commanding officers. Dedicated to her country, she always acts in its best interest — even if it’s not her own.”
Then there’s David Ajala (Doctor Who, Nightflyers) who is taking on the role of Manchester Black, “the type of guy who brings a knife to a gunfight and still walks away from the winner. With a dark past, he easily deflects the brutality of his mission with his charm and sense of humor.”
Season three saw Supergirl stop Reign and the other Worldkillers’ threat to humanity and our planet, and in the process, Kara was shocked to find her mother Alura alive and living in a salvaged Argo City that survived the destruction of Krypton. Reconnecting with her past caused Kara to realize that her true home is now here on Earth, where big changes are taking place for her and all of her friends in National City – and also, it appears, for a doppelganger in Russia! Season four promises to be full of surprises, action, adventure and lots of big revelations for Supergirl, Alex, James, J’onn, Lena and Brainy.
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow ‘Winn’ Schott, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jess Rath as Brainiac 5, and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onnz. New to the cast for the fourth season is Sam Witwer as hero Agent Liberty.
Season 4 will premiere on the CW on Sunday, October 14th, at 8 PM ET.
