‘Supergirl’ Trailer: CBS Fall Video Debuts With Melissa Benoist

In the lengthy trailer, we see Superman’s 24-year-old cousin, Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), balancing her normal life, which includes dating and a lousy boss (Calista Flockhart), with her superhuman one. And things get a bit complicated when she’s seen saving her sister (Chyler Leigh) from dying in a plane crash. Very quickly, Supergirl becomes a household name. Her real identity, however, remains a mystery to the world.

Watch the full trailer above!

Supergirl, which is developed by writer/producers Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg, will premiere on CBS this fall at 8 p.m. ET. It also stars Mehcad Brooks and David Harewood.

Interestingly, the original Supergirl and Superman (Helen Slater and Dean Cain) may also have roles in the show, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
