Tv Season Info

Season 2 finds Supergirl, Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), teaming up with her cousin Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). Kara and James (Mehcad Brooks) decide they're better off as friends, leaving the path for Mon-El (Chris Wood), the mystery alien from the pod that fell in Season 1, open to make a move on the Girl of Steel. Elsewhere, with the help of Maggie (Floriana Lima), Alex (Chyler Lee) accepts her sexuality; at the same time, Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) rethinks her family loyalties. Episode 8 begins a crossover event with the CW sister shows "The Flash", "Arrow" and "DC's Legend's of Tomorrow," in which Supergirl is featured prominently.

Critic Reviews for Supergirl: Season 2

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (2)

The move away from so much time spent with Linda Danvers, the secret identity of Supergirl, chatting with Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) helped move this series from being a soap opera with a female hero to a much better action series.

In the end, Supergirl/Kara followed her heart and it paid off for everyone.

January 24, 2017 | Full Review…

Alright, so this is a show about Supergirl, but let's make this thing clear from the start: Tyler Hoechlin is the best live-action Man of Steel since the sorely underrated Dean Cain hung up his tights.

Speaking of Clark, Tyler Hoechlin really nailed it, right?

The effects and fight sequences continue to impress, expanding the boundaries of what can be accomplished for television.

It's a very strong start to the new season, with lots of new threads to take hold of. Up, up and away!
