NEW FACES IN NATIONAL CITY AND A NEW SUIT FOR SUPERGIRL!

FIRST OFFICIAL IMAGE OF MELISSA BENOIST WITH SUPERGIRL's NEW LOOK REVEALED AT SHOW'S COMIC-CON(R) 2019 PANEL

Two New Series Stars Join the Cast for Season Five: Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars) as DC Character Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata), and Staz Nair (Game of Thrones) as Renowned Reporter William Dey

SAN DIEGO and BURBANK, Calif. (July 20, 2019) - Once again, Supergirl landed at Comic-Con with another superpowered panel filled with surprises and reveals about the eagerly awaited upcoming season. Perhaps most striking for fans is that the character of Kara Zor-El aka Supergirl (played by Melissa Benoist) will be sporting a new Kryptonian supersuit - the first revamp since her co-worker, friend, and confidante Winn Schott designed her iconic red and blue gear in season one. And two new characters will also be on the scene in National City this season.

NEW SUPERSUIT

· The new suit, conceptualized by Supergirl costume designer Victoria Auth and created by Ironhead Studios and Bill Hargates Costumes, follows the evolution of supersuits in executive producer Greg Berlanti's "Arrowverse," which has seen redesigns of both the Arrow and Flash suits in recent years.

· Regarding Kara's new look, executive producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said: "We're beyond excited to update Supergirl's iconic suit. We think her new image is strong and powerful. We hope the fans are as excited about it as we are."

NEW CHARACTERS AND SERIES REGULARS

In addition to the first official unveiling of the new Supergirl supersuit, the show's producers announced that two new characters will be joining the action in National City for the upcoming season: DC's Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) and renowned reporter William Dey.

· Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars, Dallas, Eli Stone) will star as iconic DC character Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata). A polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire, Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata) is now making a hostile advance into the world of media. Unapologetic and unafraid to make waves, she also holds a mystical secret. Gonzalo will first appear as Rojas in the season premiere on Sunday, October 6, at 9/8c on The CW.

· UK-based actor Staz Nair - who is perhaps best known for playing Qhono, a Dothraki warrior loyal to Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones - will play hardened reporter William Dey, an original character created for the series. On the surface, he's a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara's earnest idealism. Dey's not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story - but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic. Nair (Game of Thrones, FOX's The Rocky Horror Picture Show, AMC's Humans) as William Dey will also make his debut during the season premiere episode.

Supergirl returns for its fifth season on Sunday, October 6, at 9/8c on The CW. Produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and based on DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jesse Rath as Brainiac, Nicole Maines as Nia Nal, Azie Tesfai as Kelly Olsen, Andrea Brooks as Eve Tessmacher, with David Harewood as J'onn J'onzz. Greg Berlanti, Jessica Queller, Robert Rovner and Sarah Schechter are executive producers.
