"Supergirl" is introducing a bunch of new faces in Season 3.

Today, The CW released the first trailer for Supergirl season 3 - which is being headed by new showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner - during the show's panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017, teasing the character's new story arc going forward, as well as the introductions of multiple new characters.

In the first trailer for Supergirl's third season, Kara's still deeply shaken by Rhea's invasion making the decision to sacrifice Mon-El in order to save the earth. She is a villain with the power to use people's minds against them, including Supegirl's. So the exact opposite of her season 2 goal of finding a balance between her dual identities. Psi's agenda puts her on Supergirl's radar, and their meeting will affect the Girl of Steel in surprising ways. The trailer offered brief glimpses at a couple previously announced new cast members, including Odette Annable (Reign) and Erica Durance as the new Alura.

Along with the trailer, the panel also revealed some new info and casting.

Annable, meanwhile, will play Season 3 big bad, Reign.

Emma Tremblay (Elysium, The Judge, The Giver, Wayward Pines) plays Ruby, a smart, independently minded National City kid who's fascinated by Supergirl and ends up in jeopardy because of it. Supergirl has never been the most technically fantastic show on TV - it lives on the likability of its cast - so maybe I'm just being too picky here though.

Supergirl's third season kicks off 9 October.

Pasdar will play the charismatic capitalist Morgan Edge, a ruthless real estate developer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

In addition, Carl Lumbly of "Alias" fame is joining the series as M'yrnn J'onzz, father of the Martian Manhunter (David Harewood), while Yael Grobglas ("Jane the Virgin") will guest star as psychic villain Psi.
