Question, tease, cajole and wheedle Nashville showrunner Dee Johnson all you like: She isn’t giving up anything regarding who lives or dies — Deacon or Beverly?! — in the resolution to the drama’s season-ending cliffhanger.
“I can’t do it!” she says, laughing. “I’ll just tell you that Rayna’s world will never be the same.”
Fortunately, Johnson can answer several other burning questions we have in advance of the ABC series’ Sept. 23 return (10/9c). Will Juliette make up with Avery (and Rayna)? Will Will regret his bold declaration at last season’s press conference? Will Scarlett and Gunnar »

Levi Miller, who stars as Peter Pan in Warner Bros.' big screen adventure Pan, has signed on for a role in CBS' Supergirl, according to TV Line. The 12-year-old actor will portray Carter Grant, the son of media mogul Cat Grant, played by Calista Flockhart. The actor will make his debut in the show's fourth episode.
Carter Grant is described as sensitive and shy, essentially the polar opposite of his mother. As part of her duties as Cat's assistant, Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) is tasked with babysitting the young boy, where he opens up and reveals his true feelings for Supergirl. Executive producer Greg Berlanti, who worked with the actor on Pan, had this to say about the casting in a joint statement with the rest of the show's producers.
If you haven't been paying attention to all of the Supergirl casting news flooding in as of late, the CBS series is putting together a big lineup of guest stars, portraying iconic DC Comics characters. Today, Variety reports there is yet another new addition to the cast, with True Blood alum Brit Morgan coming aboard to portray Leslie Willis, otherwise known as Livewire. The actress will guest star in one episode of Supergirl, but it isn't clear what episode that may be.
Leslie Willis is described as a confident, abrasive and funny shock-jock who works for CatCo Media, the massive corporation owned by Kara Zor-El's (Melissa Benoist) boss, Cat Grant Calista Flockhart). The site reveals that an accident makes her as dangerous and as shocking as the words she delivers on the air, and Supergirl has to step in and stop her. It isn't known if there is potential for »
Earlier today, CBS held its TCA summer press tour presentation, where the network debuted a new trailer for their highly-anticipated series Supergirl, ahead of the show's debut on Monday, October 26 at 8:30 Pm Et. The show's producers also debunked rumors, once again, of a crossover between Supergirl and The CW shows Arrow and The Flash. The producers then confirmed that three more DC Comics characters will be featured on the series, General Sam Lane, the father of Lucy Lane's (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) father, who executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says will have an "agenda" in play. The show will also feature the hero Red Tornado and a Kryptonian villain named Non. The villainous Non previously appeared in Richard Donner's Superman II, but the producers said they have a, "slightly different take on the character."
None of these new characters have been cast at this time, and it isn't known when »
Earlier today, we reported that the highly-anticipated CBS series Supergirl has brought on Jenna Dewan-Tatum to play Lucy Lane, a.k.a. Superwoman. While the cast continues to be filled out, CBS has released a brand new trailer which showcases the mother-daughter relationship between Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) and Alura Zor-El (Laura Benanti). Since Kara left Krypton for Earth at a young age, many wondered how her birth mother would be featured on the show, and this trailer gives us our answer.
Alura is seen appearing before Kara through some sort of vision, which appears to be coming from some sort of mystic object. Aside from the scenes on Krypton, where Kara is sent to Earth, we haven't seen much of Alura, but it seems that she will be giving out advice to her daughter as she continues on her journey to become the hero she was always born to be. »
With production currently under way on CBS' Supergirl, a report surfaced last week that the series is currently seeking actresses to play Lucy Lane, Lois Lane's younger sister who also transforms into Superwoman in the DC Comics. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that actress Jenna Dewan-Tatum has landed the recurring role of Lucy Lane. The character will make her debut in the show's third episode.
Lucy Lane is described as "brash, funny and beautiful as her older sister Lois Lane," and also "strong, smart and successful in her own right." The report from last month revealed that, like in the DC Comics, Lucy is an ex-girlfriend of photographer Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), who is said to come to National City to, "right a previous wrong." In the previously-released Supergirl trailers, it appears that Melissa Benoist's Kara Zor-El develops an instantaneous crush on Jimmy Olsen, and with the arrival of Lucy Lane, »
Much like current TV shows based on DC Comics, such as Arrow, and The Flash, Supergirl will feature a number of characters rooted in the comic books. We reported last week that the CBS series is bringing in the villain Reactron, although the character had not been cast at that time. Today, Entertainment Weekly reveals that Chris Browning (Sons of Anarchy) has landed the role.
In the comics, Ben Krull, a.k.a. Reactron, was primarily known as a Superman villain from Metropolis, who wears a suit of armor powered by nuclear energy. Since Reactron has never been able to defeat the Man of Steel, he journeys to National City to get his revenge by trying to kill Supergirl (Melissa Benoist). The character is slated to appear in the show's third episode, with the potential to return as a recurring character throughout Season 1.
Chris Browning's casting comes just a »
Production on the second episode of CBS' Supergirl is currently under way in Los Angeles, and fans got a glimpse of the set with a new preview that debuted last week, featuring stars Melissa Benoist (Kara Zor-El), David Harewood (Hank Henshaw) and Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers). The video didn't feature much footage from the show, but today, the Brazilian fan site MBenoist.com.br has new photos of Melissa Benoist in action, seen "lifting" an ambulance. Unfortunately, it isn't known exactly why she is lifting this massive vehicle with just one hand, but hopefully we'll see much more from the production as shooting continues.
Supergirl is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. »
Even though we have more than three months until Supergirl premieres on CBS, the network has been constantly promoting the superhero TV series throughout the summer. Just one day after a Supergirl trailer surfaced, CBS has unveiled yet another sneak preview, plus a new poster, both of which feature Melissa Benoist as Kara Zor-El. The trailer doesn't feature a ton of new footage, but we do get a glimpse at a very young Kara, wearing a white shirt with the Kryptonian "S" emblazoned on the front.
TV Line reports that the show is adding yet another villain from the DC Comics, Reactron. The villain is described as a, "nuclear-powered, exoskeletal chest-plated madman," who has held a grudge against Kara's heroic cousin Superman, but decides to go after Supergirl instead. It's worth noting that, in the Superman: New Krypton comic books, Reactron is responsible for the death of Kara's parents. We »
CBS has launched a new YouTube page for its upcoming superhero TV series Supergirl, which includes a trailer with brand new footage giving us our first look at the villainous Vartox. Owain Yeoman (The Mentalist) guest stars in the pilot episode as this powerful bad guy from the Phantom Zone, who tells Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) that women must bow before men on his planet. Unfortunately for Vartox, Supergirl reminds him that he is no longer on his home planet.

As with many DC Comics adaptations before it, the upcoming Supergirl TV series has already confirmed a number of comic book characters, such as Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), Alura Zor-El (Laura Benanti) and many more. TV Line reports that CBS is currently seeking actresses to play Lucy Lane, the sister of Lois Lane who is also known as Superwoman. The network is seeking actreses in their mid-20s to early 30, with Lucy described as "brash, funny and beautiful as her sister Lois, yet strong, smart and successful in her own right."
The show will follow DC Comics lore, with Lucy being an ex-girlfriend of Jimmy Olsen's. It was made quite clear in the first Supergirl trailer that Melissa Benoist's Kara Zor-El develops an instant crush on Jimmy Olsen, with TV Line speculating that a love triangle of some sort could ensue between Kara, Lucy and Jimmy. »
We already know that two DC veterans are set to feature in Supergirl, with Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman) and Helen Slater (Supergirl) portraying Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) Earth parents Fred and Eliza Danvers, and now it seems another former Supergirl could make an appearance.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Laura Vandervoort – who played Supergirl onthe long-running Smallville – has suggested that a cameo in the CBS series could be on the cards, with the actress stating that: “Hopefully I get to be a part of it at some point, which is looking good. Hopefully I get to meet [the new Supergirl].”
