A new featurette for CBS’s Supergirl has been released, showing off some fresh interviews with the cast and crew. Get ready to meet Supergirl.

The new footage is essentially fresh interviews interspersed with previous trailer clips, and includes stars Melissa Benoist and Calista Flockhart, among others. We also get some insight from series producer Andrew Kreisberg, who is part of the brain trust behind fellow DC heavy hitters The Flash and Arrow. They dig into what viewers can expect from the series, and what inspired their take on Superman’s cousin.

Benoist digs into what inspires Kara to finally suit up and start saving people, and how she finally buys in to becoming a part of saving her surrogate home of Earth. Flockhart touches on the more soap-y aspects of the pitch as Kara aims to balance both her superhero moonlighting and professional career. Kreisberg focuses on how Kara’s story is very different from the typical Superman tale, and how her saga differs from Clark Kent’s origins.

Check out the full clip below and let us know what you think:


Supergirl premieres Oct. 26 on CBS.
