Jenna Dewan Tatum (The Witches of East End, American Horror Story) plays Lois Lane’s younger sister in a recurring role on the highly anticipated news CBS drama series, joining several episodes into the show’s debut season this fall.
The character has previously been described as “strong, smart and successful in her own right. She’s got a history with Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and she’s come to town to right a previous wrong.”
Now, executive producer Ali Adler teases how Lane’s arrival will impact Kara Zor-El a.k.a. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” Adler tells EW. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”
Supergirl brings the DC Comics character into the modern age with Kara leading a double life as a big-city personal assistant who secretly protects National City from alien fugitives who have escaped the Phantom Zone. Supergirl takes flight on Monday, Oct. 26 in a special 8:30 p.m. ET slot on CBS, then moves to its regular 8 p.m. ET slot the next week.
