When it was announced that “Supergirl” would not only be moving from CBS to The CW, but would also move its production from Los Angeles to Vancouver, the immediate concern was whether members of the cast would also make the move… especially Calista Flockhart who plays Cat Grant.
Warner Bros. and The CW have just confirmed that Flockhart will return to her role as Cat Grant for Season 2 of the series, but will only appear in a number of episodes, not as a series regular. TVLine.com reports that Flockhart will appear in the season premiere.
“Supergirl wouldn’t be Supergirl without the amazing Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg in a statement. “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.”
As we speculated, Ian Gomez, a headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine, is likely to be a stand-in for Cat Grant’s character on the series, as he is a man who tells people what he thinks of them, and his no-holds barred approach will push Kara in unexpected ways.
The Season 2 premiere of “Supergirl” will take place on Monday, October 10 at 8.00pm on The CW.
