Here's the first look at Jenna Dewan Tatum (The Witches of East End, American Horror Story) as Lois Lane’s younger sister Lucy Lane in a recurring role on the highly anticipated new CBS series, Supergirl.

Entertainment Weekly had the exclusive image of the character described as “strong, smart and successful in her own right. She’s got a history with Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and she’s come to town to right a previous wrong.”


Executive producer Ali Adler explains how Lane’s appearance will affect Kara Zor-El/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).
“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” Adler tells EW. “I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only 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' lands on Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS, before moving to its regular 8 p.m. slot the following week.
