Cat Grant is on her way back to National City!
Actress Calista Flockhart is set to reprise her role as the CatCo boss for the final two episodes of Supergirl this season, though details surrounding the character's return are being kept under wraps for the time being.
Flockhart was a series regular during the first season of Supergirl, taking on a recurring guest star role once the show moved from California to Vancouver for Season 2. Cat exited in the second episode of the season, deciding it was time to move on and explore new challenges outside of her booming media company.
Back in February, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg assured fans that they were working on bringing Calista Flockhart back before the end of the season. "We’re working on it," Kreisberg said. "We love Calista, Calista loves us, she loves the show. She has other commitments and family and whatnot, but we’re trying to work it out."
Flockhart's return comes on the heels of a few more announcements regarding returning faces to the DC TV Universe. On Monday, Stephen Amell took to Twitter to welcome back actor Manu Bennett, who played the villainous Deathstroke on Arrow. The following day, it was announced that Katrina Law would also be returning to the hit DC Entertainment drama as Nyssa al Ghul. Then yesterday fans learned that Tyler Hoechlin would be suiting up as Superman once again for the upcoming finale of Supergirl. In short, fans have a lot of familiar faces to catch up with before the season's end.
Look for Calista Flockhart to return on the May 15th and May 22nd episodes of Supergirl.
