The sixth and final season of the CW’s Supergirl has added two more to its cast. According to Deadline, Claude Knowlton (American Crime Story) and Jason Behr (Roswell) will star in the final season in recurring roles.
Knowlton will play “a mild mannered alien whose tragic past allows him to help the Superfriends with their mission at hand” while Behr is “a famous or noted Kryptonian who plays a significant role helping Kara when she faces circumstances beyond her control.” Their character names have not yet been released.
The official synopsis for the final season has also been revealed, and reads:
As Brainiac lays close to death after trying to stop Lex (Jon Cryer), Supergirl and team soar in to save him, engaging in an epic battle with Gamenmae (played by guest star Cara Buono). After beating Leviathan, Supergirl turns her attention to Lex who has used the Obsidian platform to brainwash half the world to love him and follow him at all costs, no matter what horrible things he does.”
Supergirl will premiere March 30 and run through to May 11, after which it will go on a break when Superman & Lois returns from its hiatus. Once the latter series concludes its first season, Supergirl will presumably return for its final stretch of episodes.
