Jon Cryer is returning as Lex Luthor for upcoming episodes of the sixth and final season of “Supergirl”… and he’s going to fall in love.
In an interview with EW.com, co-showrunner Jessica Queller reveals, “Lex is not only returning, but he’s finally going to fall in love with a character who is his equal, who might be named Nyxly.”
If you haven’t been watching “Supergirl” this season, Nyxly is the fifth dimensional imp (played by Peta Sergeant) who is causing quite a bit of trouble for Supergirl and her friends, having recent escaped from the Phantom Zone.
Lex Luthor, on the other hand, hasn’t been seen since the beginning of this season, when the “Super Friends” wiped his memory of Supergirl’s secret identity.
“They’re just deliciously evil and powerful and surprising,” says Queller of Cryer and Sergeant’s on-screen dynamic. “It’s just wonderful.”

The next new episode of “Supergirl” is scheduled to air on The CW in the USA on Tuesday, September 28 at 9.00pm ET/PT.
