Fresh off last night’s series premiere, CBS has dropped an extended trailer for the full first season of Supergirl. If you liked the pilot, you’re going to love this.

The trailer gives us a look at how the narrative will evolve over the next several episodes as Kara grapples with the challenges of balancing her super-life with her regular one. The premiere did a solid (if slightly clunky) job of getting things started, but the footage here shows a ton of potential. Much like Arrow and The Flash, this one only looks to get better as it goes on.

Now for the fun stuff: Along with the main characters, we also get a look at some supporting players, which include Reactron, Red Tornado, Hellgrammite and Lucy Lane. The set up of having the alien prison crash-land on Earth is a bit obvious, but it’s the perfect tool to introduce villains of the week, and if they can keep it interesting we’re all in. We also get a peek at the faceoff between Kara and her evil aunt Astra, who seems to be pulling most of the evil strings this season. 

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think of the series:
