The upcoming second season of Supergirl is airing on a new network, but with the same familiar faces. The network switch has opened up the door for more crossovers between the show and DC’s other TV ventures, such as The Flash (which is already set for another crossover and a musical episode), Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.
For weeks, the show’s newest and brightest elements have been teased, including the addition of Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin as Superman and Sharon Leal’s role as Miss Martian. Now, the new location of a special headquarters is raising a few eyebrows.
Today, fans were brought back down to Earth — and deep into a secret location — when actor David Harewood took to Twitter in order to share a cast selfie with stars Melissa Benoist, who plays the title character, and Chyler Leigh, who plays her adoptive sister, Alex Danvers.

The show’s in-world Department of Extra-Normal Operations (or, the DEO) suffered major destruction at the end of the last season, and with no major base to operate out of, Alex and Harewood’s J’onn J’onzz have likely found a more secure place. Danvers and the Martian Manhunter won’t be the only ones occupying the building, either, as Supergirl’s pal Winn will be joining the DEO team. Executive producer Sarah Schechter confirmed that not only will Winn be working at the DEO — he’ll also be spending a lot more time with J’onn/Hank.
“Winn becomes more involved with the DEO which means we get more scenes of David Harewood and Jeremy Jordan together which is to me endlessly entertaining,” Schechter told /Film at San Diego Comic-Con this year. “Nobody annoys Hank Henshaw more than Winn Schott.”
Also of interest is the fact that Harewood shared another photo, this time with Wonder Woman icon Lynda Carter, who will be appearing this coming season as the President of the United States. Cast and crew members have been sharing their encounters with the superhero legend, and for her part, Carter seems like she’s having a blast. It appears that Carter either visited the DEO set to meet the cast, or her Presidential character has a few scenes at the location on the horizon.
As for what kind of trouble the team will get into at DEO HQ (or what kind of trouble the powers behind the DEO might cause them), the answers are vague at the moment. But for the cast, time on set means more time for sharing selfies and cracking bad jokes, which is almost never a bad thing.
The Flash season 3 will premiere Tuesday October 4th at 8pm on The CW, Arrow season 5 will premiere in the same timeslot on Wednesday October 5th, Supergirl season 2 on Monday October 10th, and Legends of Tomorrow season 2 on Thursday October 13th.
