SUPERGIRL Season 5 Adds VAN HELSING Actress Jennifer Cheon Garcia As The Villainous Midnight

The fifth season of The CW's Supergirl has added another obstacle for The Girl of Steel (Melissa Benoist) to overcome, as Jennifer Cheon Garcia (Van Helsing) has joined the cast as the murderous Midnight.

The CW's Supergirl has added the first of what will likely be a long line of new villains for Kara (Melissa Benoist) to deal with over the course of the upcoming fifth season.

Variety reports that Jennifer Cheon Garcia (Van Helsing) will suit-up as Midnight, who is described as "the physical manifestation of darkness" and "a murderous villain released from an otherworldly prison to enact revenge against the person who put her there." We're assuming this will be a take on minor cybernetic villain M1dn1ght the comics, but the trade doesn't specify.

We found out at SDCC that Julie Gonzalo and Staz Nair have also joined the cast as Andrea Rojas (a.k.a. Acrata) and William Dey, respectively.

In addition to Van Helsing, Cheon Garcia's has guest-starred in Arrow, Supernatural, and The 100.

Supergirl Season 5 premiers on Sunday, October 6 at 9/8c.
