One Supergirl producer teases more adventures for Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) in season 3. As season 3 of Supergirl prepares to debut this October, the team behind the show continues to offer tidbits of info to get fans pumped for a new set of adventures. The executive producers already dished some minor spoilers on what we can expect to see with Maggie and Alex in light of the news that Maggie’s portrayer, Floriana Lima, will not be a series regular for the new season.
However, with the premiere of Supergirl season 3 less than two months away, more and more information is being revealed by those close to the show. Now, we also know a few more details about what will be happening with the star of the show, Supergirl herself.
In this week's edition of EW's Spoiler Room round up, one fan inquired about what will be happening with the friendship between Kara and Lena Luthor, and we learned a sneak peek of what’s to come. Per Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, we’ll be seeing some changes coming to the women’s dynamic in season 3:
“Lena and Kara’s friendship will continue to grow. There’s a lot of Lena-Kara adventures early on in this season. The most interesting thing about Lena is that she is so good, and so moral, and believes in second chances, but she comes from this family of truly evil people. As people are going to realize over the course of this season, it doesn’t take much to make you bad. People don’t just turn evil. They do one small bad thing and then that leads to another, and then to another, and so any time you’re watching Lena, you’re always wondering, ‘Is this the moment when she does the one small thing?'”
Supergirl has some pretty vocal supporters of Kara and Lena’s bond, affectionately dubbed “SuperCorp” by fans who are enthusiastic for the friendship, or who even 'ship the characters as being more than friends. Though it also sounds like the changes coming to SuperCorp might not all be happy ones.
The majority of Kreisberg’s statement is about Lena’s connection to her villainous family, and how watching her always leaves you wondering if (or when) she will stray down that path herself. His ominous comment sounds like it might not bode well for Kara and Lena’s friendship. Perhaps season 3 could see the beginning of Kara having to view her friend as a villain. Or maybe whatever ordeal surfaces will only bring the two women closer as they persevere through a difficult test.
Whatever the case may be, it is clear that change is coming to Supergirl in season 3. We can only wait and see whether the “growth” that the team behind the show has in mind for Kara and Lena means growing closer as friends, or growing into rivals.
Supergirl season 3 is scheduled to premiere on Monday October 9 at 8pm ET on The CW.
