We finally know a bit more about what to expect from Supergirl’s Lucy Lane.

Jenna Dewan Tatum (The Witches of East End, American Horror Story) plays Lois Lane’s younger sister, Lucy, in a recurring role.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Lucy has been 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, commented on how Lane’s arrival will impact Kara Zor-El a.k.a. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist).

“We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen — or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen,” Adler tells Entertainment Weekly. “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.”

Sounds exciting. I really like the “woman’s woman” thing and the fact that Lucy and Kara will become friends (instead of fighting over a boy). #strongwomen #womenkickass #sisterhoodmatters #yesimpreaching

Supergirl is set to get a more modern take on the DC Comics character. Like her cousin Superman/Clark Kent/Kal-El, Kara will be leading a double life; she will live as a personal assistant in the big city and a superhero.

Supergirl will premiere on Monday, Oct. 26th on CBS.
