The Girl of Steel is set to embark on a new chapter of adventures this fall. And judging by news recently unveiled at Supergirl's San Diego Comic-Con panel, Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist) will be bringing a few new friends along with her.
Also joining the cast is Carl Lumbly (Alias, Zoo), who will be playing M'yrnn J'onzz, the father of J'onn J'onnz/Martian Manhunter (David Harewood). M'yrnn is described as "A pacifist religious leader on Mars" who "pushes his son in unexpected ways." This won't be the first time that Lumbly portrays a member of the J'onnz family, as he voiced J'onn J'onnz on both Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.
The CW favorite Yael Grobglas (Jane the Virgin, Reign, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), will also be appearing in Supergirl's third season as Psi, a psychic villain who "uses people's own minds against them." The antagonist was first introduced in the pages of DC Comics in 1982's Daring New Adventures of Supergirl #1, and later went on to join the Suicide Squad and the Black Lantern Corps.
On Supergirl, Psi is set to have a similar run-in with Kara, which "will affect the Girl of Steel in surprising ways."
And rounding out the casting announcements is Emma Tremblay (Elysium, Wayward Pines). Tremblay - who is the older sister to Room standout Jacob Tremblay - will be playing Ruby, "a smart, independently minded National City kid who's fascinated by Supergirl and ends up in jeopardy because of it."
Supergirl season three will premiere on Monday, October 9th, at 8/7c, on The CW.
Based on the DC Comics character, Supergirl AKA Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero who she was always meant to be on The CW series, Supergirl.

International Television Distribution, SUPERGIRL is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash”), Ali Adler (“The New Normal”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Arrow”) and Sarah Schechter (“Blindspot,” “The Mysteries of Laura”).
