Seasons One through Five of Supergirl follow the super-charged adventures of the DC character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist). Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to Earth where she was raised by a foster family. Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and Earth – safe from sinister threats. It takes personal sacrifice to be a crime-fighting Super Hero, courage to shine a light on injustice and heart to navigate the important relationships in life. But never fear: Supergirl has it all…and more!
