“Supergirl” is getting all types of face lifts for season 2. Along with the show’s transfer from US Networks CBS to The CW, Kara Danvers/Supergirl is also getting a career change both in CatCo and at the DEO.

In an interview with Collider, “Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has shared a few tidbits regarding the upcoming second season. First of all, he explained how excited he was about the opportunity to explore the characters as individuals, as opposed to the introductions that were made in season 1. “[Season 2’s] also gotten richer,” he explained, “with some of the characters and what they’ll be exploring this season.”

Then Kreisberg described how Kara, portrayed by actress Melissa Benoist, would be specifically developed. Reportedly, her career and superhero development will be two fold. First is her promotion at CatCo. At the end of season 1, it was established that Kara would no longer be assistant to Cat. “What she decides to do at CatCo is going to be a big change, and an exciting change,” he explained. “She’s usually flexing muscles to beat the crap out of aliens, and now she’s going to be flexing career muscles, as a young career woman with a little bit of authority and autonomy.”

When it comes to her role at the Department of Extra-Normal Operations, Supergirl will no longer be “just another agent.” As Kreisberg divulged, the Girl of Steel will take on a more managerial role.

What Kreisberg is talking about is likely to focus on the arrival of Mon-El, played by “The Vampire Diaries” actor Chris Wood, who Kara is expected to train. Deadline reports that, according to a panel conducted by The CW, Mon-El is a superhero with powers similar to Supergirl and Superman. Hailing from the planet Daxam, he is an explorer that found his way to Kryton. There, Jor-El warned him of the planet’s upcoming destruction and pointed him towards Earth.

"Supergirl" season 2 airs on The CW on Oct. 10. Australian audiences can catch the same on Syfy.
