Glee’s Melissa Benoist to Star as Kara on CBS Supergirl Series

Grant Gustin has proved so successful as the Flash that CBS decided lightning could strike twice.

Look, up in the sky, it’s…another Glee alum entering the TV DCU. Grant Gustin has proved so successful as the Flash that CBS decided lightning could strike twice. TVLine reports Melissa Benoist will fill the coveted role.

Per the CBS series’ logline, Kara Zor-El escaped her home planet of Krypton amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has concealed the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now, at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.

Other Supergirl roles to be cast include Kara’s science-minded foster sister, Alex; Cat Grant, the CEO of CatCo, a media conglom Kara toils for; CatCo colleagues James Olsen and Wynn Schott; and Hank Henshaw, the Supergirl-obsessed director of the the DEO (Department of Extra-Normal Operations).

I never watched Glee, having seen it the first time around when it was called Fame. I enjoy Grant Gustin immensely in the Flash, however, so I hope Benoist will be the high flier the Supergirl series needs.

Raissa Devereux became a life-long genre fan at the age of four when she first saw The Wizard of Oz at a screening at Arizona State University. Years later, she graduated from A.S.U. as an English major, History minor, Whovian, and Trekkie. Now a Florida transplant, she loves the opportunity Sci-Fi Pulse has given her to further explore space travel, time travel, masked heroes, gothic castles, and good yarns.
