Fans of Supergirl are eagerly awaiting its big Season 2 premiere on an entirely different network. The show has left CBS and is now on the CW where it can pal around with The Flash and Arrow. With such a big change, many have been wondering how this will affect the show, if at all. Will it look cheaper? Will some actors have to leave the show? Will its bright and hopeful tone change? Now we can at least figure out the answer to that last question. Supergirl actor David Harewood has revealed the title for the first episode of the season, and it's just as fun and spirited as people would expect.
David Harewood wears many hats on Supergirl where he plays Hank Henshaw/J'onn J'onnz/ The Martian Manhunter. The actor took to Instagram to show off a pic of the script and title of the Season 2 premiere. The episode will be called "The Adventures of Supergirl" and it was accompanied by a font that might look familiar to die-hard comic book fans. It's the font most associated with Superman, and the title could be a direct reference to the Man of Steel himself.
The Adventures of Superman was a famous radio show in the 40's, and then a TV show starring George Reeves in the 50's. It's also been the title of a few Superman comic books. It's pretty classic Superman stuff and Supergirl's use of the title and font could be either an homage or teasing Superman's onscreen debut in the TV show. It's possibly a hint that he will make his first appearance in the premiere, so lots of DC fans should get hyped for this episode. Either way, the episode will likely try to capture a bit of the spirit and sense of imagination that those Superman shows had in the past.
"The Adventures of Supergirl" may also be a reference to the Supergirl tie-in comic of the same name. The Adventures of Supergirl is a digital comic that is set in the universe of the show, although there are no direct tie-ins to episodes from the show. Each issue has Kara fighting different bad guys, and going on missions for the D.E.O. (basically, it has her going on adventures) all while invoking the spirit of the show. The comic itself also most likely a reference to The Adventures of Superman, which only makes that particular theory stronger.
Supergirl makes its premiere on the CW on October 10, 2016. Make sure to check out our list of Fall TV Premieres for more details on all your favorite returning shows. While you're at it check out our list of Summer TV show's to keep you busy until the fall.
