Supergirl‘s making the leap from CBS to The CW for its second season and it appears Superman will be part of at least a few episodes in the new season. The CW officially confirmed Superman will be appearing in Supergirl season two, however the role is still in the casting stage. Superman was often referenced in season one, but never appeared in a guest starring role in the show’s rookie season.

“Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and I are beyond thrilled to welcome Clark Kent and his slightly-more-famous alter ego to the world of Supergirl,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “Superman will be appearing in the first two episodes of the new season and we cannot wait to see who next dons the red cape!”

Fans of the DC universe can also expect to see epic crossover episodes mixing the worlds of Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

The Supergirl cast is led by Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl. Mehcad Brooks plays James Olsen, Laura Benanti is Alura Zor-El, Calista Flockhart stars as Cat Grant, Chyler Leigh plays Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Jeremy Jordan is Winslow “Winn” Schott, Jenna Dewan Tatum is Lucy Lane, David Harewood stars as Hank Henshaw, and Peter Facinelli is Maxwell Lord. Dean Cain and Helen Slater guest starred as Kara’s adoptive Earth parents, Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers.
