Andrea Brooks, who has recurred as Eve Teschmacher since 2016, is being promoted to series regular.
Initially introduced to viewers as Cat Grant’s plucky assistant, Eve has evolved into a much more pivotal — and diabolical — character as of late. Her true nature was exposed towards the end of Season 4, when it was revealed that she’d secretly spent years working for Lex Luthor.
When last we left her, Eve was attempting to skip town, only to be stopped by a not-so-sweet old lady. “Looks like you packed plenty,” she said. “But we’ll always find you, Eve, no matter how many wigs you cycle through. … Lex was supposed to move the needle. He failed.” She left Eve with this chilling warning: “Leviathan is everywhere. Leviathan is everyone. And Leviathan is coming.”
In addition to Supergirl, Andrea Brooks also appears on Hallmark Channel’s hit series When Calls the Heart, which recently wrapped its sixth season in June.
Supergirl seems poised to face off against the powerful, secret organization known as Leviathan in Season 5. In the Season 4 finale, they were revealed to be controlling Lex Luthor. Furthermore, Eve Teschmacher (Andrea Brooks) was approached by an old lady who told her: “Leviathan is everywhere. Leviathan is everyone. And Leviathan is coming.”
What Supergirl season 5 will have in store for its heroes is anybody’s guess at the moment, but we do know that, at the very least, the show will feature some sort of lead up to and deal with the aftershocks of this year’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, which promises to shake the Arrowverse to its very core.
Supergirl‘s fifth season premieres Sunday, Oct. 6 at 9/8c, following the series premiere of Batwoman. Your thoughts on Brooks’ promotion? General hopes for Season 5? We’ll keep you updated as we hear more about Supergirl Season 5.
