We are quickly approaching the air date of DC and CBS' upcoming television show, Supergirl. Although the show hasn't even been released yet, fans of the female-driven story are already excited to see Kara Zor-El's story.

If you haven't already, watch the first look of the show here:

Fans might already feel somewhat familiar with Melissa Benoist and Mehcad Brooks' characters, but there are still a few familiar names that have yet to be seen.

Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly released the first image of Jenna Dewan Tatum, who will be playing the role of Lois Lane's sister, Lucy Lane. Check out the first still of Lucy below:

In their interview with EW, Supergirl's executive producer Ali Adler discusses what Lucy's relationship with Jimmy means for Kara:

We hope to explore the history that Lucy has with James Olsen—or, as Lucy knows him, Jimmy Olsen. I think we’re going to bring in her father. She not only plays a romantic foil with whatever Kara and James are brewing, but people will also be surprised that she’s really a woman’s woman. She and Kara develop their own friendship, too. We’re not just bringing her in to purposefully create tension. She serves a larger story drive.

Seeing more of the Lane family intermingling with Kryptonians is certainly intriguing. Do you think it will be worth tuning in for?

Supergirl will air on CBS starting on Monday, October 26 at 8:30.
