Benoist and Jenner met on the set of Glee where they were both freshman New Direction members after the original crew went off to college.
Now, Jenner will play Adam Foster, "a handsome stranger from Cat Grant's (Calista Flockhart) past whose arrival in National City tests Kara and Cat's relationship like never before." As if Kara needed to add boy trouble to her strained relationship with her boss!
Jenner is scheduled to appear in multiple Supergirl episodes beginning in early 2016.
It's great for Benoist to get to hang with her husband at work, and for Kara to have someone to distract her from James' (Mehcad Brooks) knock-out ex (Jenna Dewan-Tatum). However, it's time to pour one out for Winn (Jeremy Jordan), who just got bumped to the very dull corner of this love square. There's surely someone out there for you too, buddy.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7c on CBS.
