Earlier this month it was reported that Jenna Dewan-Tatum will have a recurring role on Supergirl as Lucy Lane, Lois Lane's younger sister.. She'll have a connection to Jimmy Olsen (Mecad Brooks), which brings her appearance on the show.
Entertainment Weekly had the first look at Dewan-Tatum on the show.
Executive producer Ali Adler also stated:
“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen—or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” Adler says. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.”
Supergirl premieres on CBS on Monday, October 26 at 8:30 ET/PT. The following week it moves to its regular 8:00 pm slot.
