During Supergirl‘s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that the show will be adding four new faces for season 3. These new characters will be played by Adrian Pasdar, Carl Lumbly, Yael Grobglas, and Emma Tremblay.
Adrian Pasdar, who fans might recognize from Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., will be playing Morgan Edge. Edge is a tough yet charismatic real estate developer who’s plans and desires to have everything his way will put him in direct opposition to Supergirl herself.
Carl Lumbly stars as M’yrnn J’onzz. Fans might know him better as the father of J’onn J’onnz aka the Martian Manhunter. In the upcoming season, the pacifist M’yrnn will push his son in new directions. This is not Lumbly’s first time in the world of the Martian Manhunter, as he previously voiced the character on the Justice League animated series.
Yael Grobglas will be joining the show as Psi. Psi has psychic powers and uses her abilities against others as a form of mind control. These actions are what will lead her to cross paths with Supergirl, in what is sure to be an interesting meeting of the minds.
Lastly, Emma Tremblay will be playing Ruby. Ruby is a kid from National City who admires Supergirl, and this admiration might just get her into trouble.
Supergirl season 3 is slated to premiere on Monday, October 9 at 8/7c on The CW.
