Supergirl season 4←Supergirl season 3 Supergirl season 5→
Supergirl season 4 will be a free adaptation of the popular three-part comic strip Superman: Red Son. The young Earth defender will also have to deal with Agent Liberty (Sam Witwer) who stirs up xenophobia in National City and former bodyguard Lex Luthor Mercedes "Mercy" Graves III (Rhona Mitra), who supports him in these views. Given that National City will meet very versatile characters - a soldier, a patriotic villain and a transgender activist - it seems that there will be a big conflict between the heroes about their vision of good and evil.

When Jensen--the new Parasite--attacks aliens, Supergirl is forced to take to the sidelines rather than give him further power.

Kara travels with Nia to the latter's hometown and discovers that Nia is inheriting the Dreamer power from her mother... which has skipped Nia's sister Maeve.

Kara continues to deal with the fallout from Alex's mindwipe, and a new villain enters National City: Menagerie, a human jewel thief merged with an alien symbiote. Nia invites Brainiac-5 to her Valentine's Day party, and Ben reaches out to his wife and son.
Manchester assembles a team of Supergirl's old and new opponents to break him out of prison and form The Elite. Meanwhile, President Baker reaches out to Ben and soon asks him for more than photo ops.
Ben proposes to end the Alien Amnesty Act and holds a rally. Alien protesters hold a peaceful march, but Manchester plans to disrupt the event using stolen Kryptonian technology... and reveal J'onn's true feelings. James goes to the rally to cover events as a photographer.
James undergoes surgery to replace his shattered spine, and Lena has no choice but to work with her brother Lex to perfect the Harun-El serum to cure James before he dies. J'onn and Kara track down Manchester, who has recovered the Staff of H'ronmeer and attempts to turn J'onn from the path of peace.
Lex spends three years plotting his next scheme, working with the Kaznian government to train the Supergirl clone to further their ambitions against America so that he can step in and stop them, becoming a hero to the world and its savior.

Supergirl and Alex go after Red Daughter, while Lena and James hunt down Ben. Brainiac-5, J'onn, and Dreamer attempt to rescue the alien prisoners, but two of them are captured and one of them is "rebooted".
Lex's plan reaches fruition: Red Daughter has defeated Supergirl, Lex has defeated the Kaznians and then Red Daughter. Now only one thing can stop him: the power of the Fourth Estate.
