Supergirl already has three different identities and now she has her second network. After earning lackluster ratings for its first season, CBS passed Supergirl on to The CW, a much better home for the show. It is now one of four DC Comics shows on the network, all under the watch of super-producer Greg Berlanti. Here’s a preview of the season two premiere and details on when it airs.

Supergirl season two starts with Kara finally teaming up with her cousin, Superman, played by Teen Wolf‘s Tyler Hoechlin, to help save National City’s civilians. Meanwhile, Hank Henshaw and Supergirl will also try to learn the secrets of the alien pod that crashed to earth in the season one finale. Cat Grant is also encouraging Kara Danvers to take ricks in her personal and professional lives.

PREMIERE DATE: Monday, October 10, 2016

TIME: 8 p.m. (The CW is also re-airing the episode at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 14.)

EPISODE DESCRIPTION: “The Adventures of Supergirl” – In the Season 2 premiere, Supergirl’s famous cousin arrives on the scene to help her deal with a new threat to the citizens of National City. While having Clark Kent around is a thrill for Kara, their family reunion leaves Alex feeling a bit left out. Meanwhile, Cat Grant encourages her young protégé to make a bold decision in both her personal and professional lives; and Hank and Supergirl are stunned by the alien pod that crashed to Earth.
