Kara will be getting some competition at CatCo from Nick Farrow, described as a “brash leading man” and the son of a famous reporter. Nick is “looking to make a name for himself in the news world but the question of whether he can leave behind his former selfish and hedonistic ways will constantly arise. In hanging out with Kara, the hero in Nick might finally come out.”
Three other castings are as follows:
The Doctor, the diabolical female leader of Project Cadmus who uses her surgical skills to implant prisoners with alien technology (and who sounds a lot like Sterling Roquette);
Snapper Carr, a veteran journalist appointed by Cat to remake the news division by going old school (not to be confused with the Justice League sidekick);
Maggie, an out and proud detective for the newly formed Science Police, which deals specifically with metahuman and alien threats.
Supergirl Season 2 will premiere on The CW this Fall.
