After much speculation following the show’s move from CBS to the CW, it has now been confirmed that Calista Flockhart will be appearing in Supergirl season two… but not all of it.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cat will be a recurring character for season two rather than a regular one. Her multiple-episode arc will begin with the season premiere. The change is thought to be a result of the production’s move from Los Angeles to Vancouver, a cost-cutting measure necessitated by Supergirl’s change of networks.
“Supergirl wouldn’t be Supergirl without the amazing Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant,” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “We are so excited Calista has agreed to continue on the show when she can. We and the audience love to see her on screen.”
Supergirl airs in the UK on Sky One.
