“Supergirl” season 2 will start its second season under a new network, filled with new storylines and cast members.
Already confirmed for inclusion is Tyler Hoechlin, who will play Supergirl’s (Melissa Benoist) popular cousin “Superman” as well as Lynda Carter who will take on the role of the United States president.
Now The Hollywood Reporter bares that another Supergirl series regular is set to join the cast in Floirana Lima. She will portray Maggie Sawyer, another familiar character in the DC comic series.
Who is Maggie Sawyer?
Not all comic book fans may be familiar with Sawyer. She was created by John Byrne and was first introduced as the head of the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit. She also worked with the Gotham Police department.
From the looks of it, Maggie will be hooked up with the D.E.O. to lend a helping hand against aliens. Looking back to season 1, there were a lot that popped up so season 2 will likely see a whole lot more.
Will Maggie find out Kara is Supergirl?
Another twist worth noting is whether Maggie would know Supergirl as only the hero or be aware as well that she is Kara Danvers in real life. Assuming she does discover the real score, the next thing that comes to mind is how?
Regardless, it will be interesting how her role pans up. Lima is a tested actress, having appeared in various TV shows. The list of shows where Floriana Lima has appeared already includes Allegiance, CSI, The Mob Doctor and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as detailed by Screen Rant.
Lima included in crossovers?
With Supergirl now under the CW wing, it will be interesting if Lima’s package includes starring in the planned crossovers. If so, she could appear as well on other shows like “Flash”, “Arrow” or even “Legends of Tomorrow”.
Supergirl season 2 is set to premiere its second season on Oct. 10 via CW.
