We reported a few weeks ago that production has wrapped on the Supergirl pilot episode, which stars Melissa Benoist as the title character. CBS has already issued a series commitment, which means it will almost certainly be given a full series order during CBS' upfront presentation next month. While we wait for any official details regarding the show, a new set photo has surfaced from KryptonSite, which gives us another look at Melissa Benoist in the full Supergirl costume.
It isn't known when or where this photo was taken, although the actress appears to be in an office of some sort. CBS already unveiled an official photo of the actress in costume last month, but this is possibly our best look at the costume, since the original photo was in a dark and muted environment and this image shows how it looks on an actual set. While the major networks' upfront presentations normally happen in May, it has become common for networks to issue early series renewals ahead of the upfronts, so hopefully we'll hear more about Supergirl's fate in the near future.
Melissa Benoist's co-stars include Mehcad Brooks (James Olsen), Laura Benanti (Alura Zor-El), Chyler Leigh (Alexandra "Alex" Danvers), Jeremy Jordan (Winslow "Winn" Schott) and David Harewood (Hank Henshaw). Dean Cain and Helen Slater also star, although their roles have yet to be confirmed. It has been rumored that they are playing Kara's foster parents. While we wait for more details on Supergirl, take a look at this new behind-the-scenes photo below.
