Kreisberg on Season 2

In the wake of the season one finale, there is a lot of professional chatter out there about season two. What makes this even more remarkable is that it includes comments directly from the show runners. If the executive producers didn't think there would be a season two they wouldn't be doing this PR circuit. The article that is standing out to us the most come from Entertainment Weekly. Reporter Natalie Abrams had opportunity to sit down with Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg who spoke quite a bit about season 2. You can read the full article here, but these are the excerpts that stood out to us:

What can you tease of who this is? Are they friend or foe?

Obviously it’s our big cliffhanger of the season, so I’m not fully inclined to let everyone know who shot J.R. It’s an important character, and they’ll play an important role in season 2.

Kara was willing to risk her life for the world. How does that change her in season 2?

This whole season has been about her embracing being Supergirl. In a way, this was her graduation episode. She hadn’t fully figured out how to integrate being Supergirl into her life. This whole season has been a learning experience for her. At the end of this episode, she’s fully Supergirl. Next season, you’re going to see a Supergirl who is more mature, and a bit more of a cohesive character. She’s taken the identity of Kara and the identity of Supergirl and merged them in a better way. You’re just going to see a more confident, stronger Supergirl than we’ve ever seen before.

General Lane (Glenn Morshower) gave Max (Peter Facinelli) the Omegahedron. They seem to be in cahoots there. Can you tease what’s really going on here?

I always love the idea of just when you think Max is good, he does something shifty. He always has his own agenda, and you’re never quite sure where you stand with him. We just loved the idea of Max seemingly completely joining the good side of the force, being Team Supergirl and helping to save the day, but oh yeah, wait a minute, there’s still something in it for him, so we’ll see where that leads us.

You previously teased that Project Cadmus will come up in season 2. Will that mission be a big focus?

It’ll be one aspect of it. We’ve been discussing the big bad of season 2; Cadmus may or may not be related to that. The hunt for Jeremiah Danvers (Dean Cain) will definitely be part of season 2.

Hank is back as director of the DEO. How does an alien being in charge change their MO moving forward?

Part of season 2 will be Hank embracing his Martian Manhunter-ness more, and people getting used to the fact that there is an alien amongst them and he is to be trusted.

What can you say of the fates of Non and Brainiac?

If you’re a fan of the comic books, you know that Kara’s heat vision took away Non’s — lobotomized Non. How and when we see him again, he’ll probably be very different. I think Indigo is probably the hardest person in the world to kill given that she’s a living computer, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she pops up again.

What would you say was your point of pride for the first season?

I’m so proud of the show. As much expectation there was for the show, there was also a lot of like, “Yeah, prove it!” [Laughs.] I think the show really works. Melissa is a star. Like any first season show, there were missteps and not every episode was as strong as the others, but I can point to a whole bunch of episodes, like “Red Faced,” like “Human for a Day,” like the crossover, like “Falling” as being some of my favorite episodes that I’ve gotten to do over the course of all the series that Greg [Berlanti] and I work on together. I’m just super proud of the show. We’ve proven that there’s an audience for a female superhero. Hopefully there will be many more years to come.

The rest of the article can be read here and its very good. We highly suggest you read it all.
