Agent Liberty prepares for war in new Supergirl season 4 promo

A war is coming to Supergirl in season 4!

On one side, we have Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), a beacon of hope and tolerance for all; and on the other side, we have individuals like Mercy Graves (Rhona Mitra) and Sam Witwer’s Agent Liberty, who represent fear and seek to divide the country and turn it against aliens. As you can see in the exclusive new season 4 promo, Kara will have work her cut out for her because growing anti-alien sentiment has led to hate crimes and the aforementioned fear-mongers are prepared to go to war.

“We see the big thematic question of the season: What is stronger, hope or fear?” co-showrunner Robert Rovner tells EW.

If it wasn’t clear from the promo — which you can watch above — the season’s main conflict between hope and fear of aliens is supposed to be an allegory for the real-world immigration debate and racial divisiveness in the states. Not only that, but the showrunners also wanted to use this season’s arc to also make a case for how you don’t need a cape to be a superhero, too.

“Robert and I really wanted to tell stories this year that were more grounded and reflecting the real world issues,” says co-showrunner Jessica Queller. “Part of what interested us was really reflecting reporters and journalists as heroes.”

Below, EW chats with Rovner and Queller about the difficulties in tackling these topical issues, how Kara handles a problem she simply can’t punch away, and what makes Agent Liberty such a frightening villain.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: It’s clear from this promo that this season is using anti-alien sentiment to explore our real-world issues. Why did you want to go in this direction this season?
