The CW’s hit series “Supergirl” will become the first TV show to feature a transgender superhero.

In season 4 of the series which will kick off in October, the show introduces actor Nicole Maines playing DC comics character Nia Nal, also known as Dreamer.

A CW press release shared with The Christian Post describes Nia Nal as a “soulful young transgender woman with a fierce drive to protect others.”

The character will be the newest addition, working for the CatCo reporting team on the show, but beyond that, no further information on the character has been released.

“I’m nervous because I want to do it right,” Maines, the transgender activist turned actor said in an interview with Variety shortly after the casting announcement broke.”We’ve had trans representation in television for a while but it hasn’t been the right representation.”
