Supergirl casts Jenna Dewan-Tatum as Lucy Lane

Add another name to the Supergirl cast, Jenna Dewan-Tatum will be joining the series as Lucy Lane. The new superhero series is gearing up for the big premiere in a few weeks and Jenna Dewan-Tatum is the latest star to join the series.

Fans may know Jenna Dewan-Tatum best from her popular role on “The Witches of East End” and from her role in “American Horror Story.” In “Supergirl” she will play Lucy Lane, the younger sister of Superman’s main-squeeze, Lois Lane.

In the series Lucy will be a smart and successful young-lady, looking to even the score with a Mr. Jimmy Olsen (played by Mehcad Brooks). Fans of Dewan-Tatum can expect to see her in episode 3 of the first season.

In the series Supergirl was born on the doomed planet Krypton, the preteen Kara escaped at the same time as the infant Kal-El (Superman), but didn’t arrive on Earth until many years later after being lost in the Phantom Zone.

Now at age 24, living in National City and working as an assistant for Catco Worldwide Media mogul Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart), Kara (Melissa Benoist) has spent so many years trying to fit in that she forgot to ever stand out.

All that changes when she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always destined to be. With the help of Daily Planet photographer James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), her foster sister Alex (Chyler Leigh), and the research of the super-secret, off-the-grid Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO) and its head, Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), who are tasked with keeping the Earth safe from aliens, Kara takes to the skies to protect her world.

Supergirl premieres Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
