A major Supergirl cliffhanger has been resolved: Calista Flockhart will indeed return to the
CBS CW series in Season 2 as Cat Grant. That’s the good news. The subpar news is that the actress will no longer be a series regular. Instead, she will recur as her schedule permits.
A Warner Bros. rep tells TVLine that Flockhart will be appearing in multiple episodes, beginning with the Oct. 10 season premiere.
According to sources, her status change was a direct result of the show’s move from Los Angeles (where Flockhart lives) to Vancouver (where she doesn’t).
“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.”
