‘Supergirl’: Melissa Benoist On Kara’s Future In Journalism

Supergirl Melissa Benoist

It has been an eventful past few episodes for Supergirl, to say the least, and one of the most significant events ocurred when Kara lost her job at CatCo Worldwide Media. Fired for publishing unverified (at least to the public) content on a competing outlet, Kara has suddenly added unemployment to her list of problems. In an interview with TVLine, series lead Melissa Benoist and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg discussed Kara’s future in journalism and teased a important episode centered on James Olsen.

Benoist hinted that Supergirl fans will see more reporting from Kara in the future.

“[It] is a struggle, for sure, but that’s her calling. So it would not be her story without more journalism.That’s what she wants to do the most with her life, so you’ll see more of that, for sure.”

Kreisberg also teased that Kara may not be unemployed for much longer.

“Kara might not be out of a job as long as people think. You can’t keep a good writer down.”

Kreisberg also teases an important Supergirl episode focused on James Olsen.

“There’s a big James episode coming up that we’re starting to shoot this week. It’s, like, the biggest James story we’ve ever done. We’re excited, Mehcad [Brooks] is excited…. It’s going to be great.”

Personally, Kara’s career in journalism has been one of the more interesting yet underdeveloped stories of the season thus far, so I’m eager to see more focus on her intrepid reporting.

Are you excited to see Kara get back in the journalism game? What big events do you think await James? Share your thoughts below!

Supergirl airs on Monday at 8:00 pm ET on The CW. Be sure to check back with Heroic Hollywood after each episode for weekly reviews!
