The CW television series, “Supergirl” has just concluded its second season last month and it made sure to leave behind hints of what to expect in the next season. It has then been revealed that actress Odette Annable has joined the cast.
“Supergirl” Season 3 might have not aired yet but the recent season left off with hints that the next installment will be meeting a bigger villain, one that have been an enemy of the Superman family for so long. The last episode of the second season showed a flashback that revealed another alien infant fleeing from Krypton during the planet’s destruction. Of course, it ended the flashback saying that someone was out to conquer and reign over earth.
Actress Odette Annable will be portraying the role of season 3’s major villain, Reign. It has also been revealed that she will be a series regular so fans will be treated to Reign being in the scene for a long time. “Supergirl” will finally adapt the well-known World Killer story arc and will take that chance to introduce Reign in the series. A major antagonist like Reign deserves a huge introduction especially when her powers and superhuman strength rivals Supergirl’s.
Executive producer Andrew Kriesberg revealed that he and co-executive producer Greg Berlanti are excited to finally add Annable to the stellar cast of “Supergirl”. He added that he and Berlanti have always wanted to work with Annable for years. He said that Annable will be great in portraying the scary, powerful, and heartbreaking role of Reign.

The actress is well known for her roles in television shows such as “Banshee”, “The Astronaut Wives Club”, and “Pure Genius” of which she plays the main role. The CW has renewed “Supergirl” for a third season and there are no announcement yet of when it will be released.
