Supergirl‘s second season will premiere on October 10, 2016 with an episode titled ‘The Adventures of Supergirl.’ Season one aired on CBS but season two has a new home on The CW, joining the network’s popular comic book-inspired trio of Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow and making it easier for multiple superhero cross-over episodes.

The first episode of Supergirl‘s season two finds a new superhero helping to save mankind. Superman, talked about but not seen in the first season, appears in the first episode of season two with Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin playing the Man of Steel. Episode one of the second season airs at 8pm ET/PT and was directed by Glen Winter from a script by Andrew Kreisberg and Jessica Queller (story by Greg Berlanti and Kreisberg).

The Adventures of Supergirl Plot: When a new threat emerges in National City, Kara/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) teams up with her cousin, Clark Kent/Superman (Hoechlin), to stop it. Kara is thrilled to have family in town but it leaves Alex (Chyler Leigh) feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Hank (David Harewood) and Supergirl are stunned by the pod that came crashing to Earth.

The Season 2 Plot: Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant’s assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO., protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.
