This month, Supergirl returns to TV for its second season. The show follows Kara Zor-El (aka Supergirl), played by Melissa Benoist, 10 years after she crash-lands on Earth.

According to producer Ali Adler, “That question may be answered when we see the super-cousins on-screen together this season!”
