It feels like it's been forever since flew across our screens. We last saw her battle Cyborg Superman in "Medusa," which led to the four-part crossover, "Invasion."

Today, The released a new, extended trailer for it's forthcoming episode, "Supergirl Lives," that will certainly heighten your excitement for the Girl of Steel's return.

This trailer reveals that we will be seeing some familiar faces. Fan-favorite villain, Livewire will be making a comeback as well as the Dominators from "Invasion".

It also looks like Kara will be teaming up with Mon-El and assist him on his journey to becoming a superhero. The official synopsis for "Supergirl Lives" reads:


Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman).

To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister.

The Future Of 'Supergirl' Season 2

It was announced that we will be seeing Metallo again this season as well as longtime foe Mr. Mxyzptlk. We also have a musical crossover in store with and rumor has it that Cat Grant will return soon too.

In my opinion, Supergirl has been different without her sarcasm and insight. "Sanvers" shippers (I am proudly one of them) are thrilled to see Alex and Maggie again now that they are officially a couple. Their story line is arguably the best representation on television to date. As a fan of Maggie Sawyer in the comics, I'm hoping for Kate Kane, also known as , to make an appearance. But only time will tell!

The ninth episode of Supergirl Season 2 is sure to remind us why we missed this show so much.
