Melissa Benoist is Supergirl!

The search for Supergirl is finally over! CBS and Warner Bros. TV announced today that Glee star Melissa Benoist has landed the lead part in Greg Berlanti’s (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler’s (The New Normal) upcoming superhero drama Supergirl. Benoist, a relatively new face on the small screen, is most well-known for her role as Marley Rose from the FOX musical series’ fourth season and half of the fifth season.

Benoist’s casting comes a week after CBS’s executive session at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, where network president Nina Tassler stated that they were looking for a lesser-known actress that “could carry the show” and be an “every woman.”
