There are two new faces coming to National City for the fifth season of Supergirl. It was announced at the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel that Julie Gonzalo and Staz Nair are joining the superhero show as series regulars.
According to a press release, Gonzalo will play Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata), a polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire who is now making a hostile advance into the world of media.
Nair will play hardened reporter William Dey, a character that was made specifically for the series. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic. This addition makes sense since it was revealed that Mehcad Brooks is departing the show.
Are you excited for the show to return? Let me know in the comments below!
Supergirl returns Sunday, October 6 at 9/8c on The CW.
