‘Supergirl’ is currently on its winter hiatus, but the show will return on Monday, January 23rd with a real treat!  The episode entitled ‘Supergirl Lives!’ was directed by fan favorite Kevin Smith.  (The title is a play on ‘Superman Lives!’ the feature film that Smith was attached to until the project fell apart.)

Below is a preview clip from the episode, in which Kara (Melissa Benoist) bumps into Mon-El (Chris Wood) at the alien bar, where he is now employed… although from the looks of things, he may not be there long.

You can watch the clip below:

In addition to this episode, upcoming Season Two episodes will feature the return of Livewire (played by Brit Morgan) and Metallo (Frederick Schmidt).  Other fan favorite villains will also return, but executive producer Ali Adler said it was too early to make any additional announcements.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also stated that now that Kara’s sister Alex and Officer Maggie Sawyer are an official couple and will continue to evolve:

“The important thing is that we’re committed to this relationship and we’re committed to seeing it grow, change, blossom, and struggle, but also get stronger, deeper and more loving as we go forward. I don’t think people need to worry that suddenly this relationship is going to go by the wayside. It’s going to have it’s ups and downs, but we’re committed to Alex and Maggie — we’re as committed to Alex and Maggie as the audience is.”

‘Supergirl’ swoops back on Monday, January 23rd at 8pm EST on The CW.
