When Supergirl made plans to movie networks and its production home from Los Angeles to Vancouver, many wondered if Calista Flockhart, who lives in Los Angeles, would continue with the series. And despite references to her character, Cat Grant, during Comic-Con, it was unclear if she would really return.
But according to The Wrap, Flockhart will return to the series in a recurring guest star capacity. In a statement, producer Andrew Kreisberg said the show would not be same without the actress and "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."
In lieu of working for Grant, Melissa Benoist's Kara will face a new office foil in the form of Snappy Carr, re-imagined for the series as a tough, news-minded editor-in-chief at CatCo Magazine.
Supergirl returns for its second season on October 20th.
