Also revealed at Comic-Con is that two new characters are joining the cast in the new season – DC characters Andrea Rojas and William Dey.

Andrea Rojas AKA Acarta will be played by Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars). Rojas is a polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire who is now making a hostile advance into the world of media. Unapologetic and unafraid to make waves, she also holds a mystical secret.

Gonzalo will first appear as Rojas in the season premiere on Sunday, October 6, at 9/8c on The CW. Staz Nair (Game of Thrones) will play William Dey, an original character created for the series. On the surface, he’s a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic.

Supergirl returns for its fifth season on Sunday, October 6, at 9/8c on The CW!
