"Supergirl" season 2 premirers on The CW on Oct. 18 at 8pm ET. Facebook/Supergirl on The CW

“Supergirl” has a few exciting features in store for season 2, thanks to its new home, The CW. These things include a big family reunion, an exciting new character and Kara Danvers rounding out who she is.

It is no secret that Superman, played by “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Hoechlin, will be making an appearance in the first few episodes of “Supergirl.” Clark appears at National City in order to team up with Kara when a threat proves to be too much for just one superhero to handle.

Hoechlin, on his part, understands the gravity of his portrayal. "I know the character represents so much to so many people. This is not a generational thing,” he said at the San Diego Comic Con. “This is something literally spread across so much time. There is a lot of responsibility with this character."

Superman and Clark Kent are, however, not the only characters that will be making their debut on “Supergirl.” The pod that was left unopened in season 1 and the mystery it brought will all be clarified as well. But as Andrew Kreisberg revealed in a previous press conference, the being brought by the pod is Mon-El.

Mon-El, also known as Lar Gand, is not new to the “Superman” world, but he is still asleep within the confines of the DEO when “Supergirl” returns on air. He shares many powers and abilities with Superman but has a weakness to lead instead of Kryptonite. The character, played by Chris Wood, will be explored later on in season 2.

But despite all of this, the general theme of “Supergirl” season 2 still centres on Kara Danvers, portrayed by Melissa Benoist. “Last year was all about figuring out how to be Supergirl,” she said before season 1 closed. “Now it’s time I figure out how to be Kara.” In this regard, the first on the agenda is Kara struggling with Clark’s popularity.

“Supergirl” season 2 airs on Mondays at 8pm on The CW. Australian audiences can catch the same on Syfy.
