One of the most beloved characters on Supergirl is Calista Flockhart’s Cat Grant, the woman behind Cat Co and Kara Danvers’ (Melissa Benoist) boss who played a large role in Season 1. But with the show moving to The CW and production moving to Vancouver, Canada, there had been major speculations regarding Flockhart’s status as there were discussions about whether or not she would be coming back as a series regular. Today we finally have that answer as Warner Bros. TV announced that Flockhart has signed a deal to stay on the show as recurring guest star.
Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said this in a statement about Flockhart’s continuing presence on the show.
“Supergirl wouldn’t be Supergirl without the amazing Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant 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,”
Cougar Town’s Ian Gomez will be coming into the show this year as Snapper Carr who will be the editor-in-chief of Cat Co as Cat hires him which makes even more sense now, with Flockhart’s new status on the series. Here is how he is described:
“Snapper Carr is a headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief of CatCo Magazine. Snapper’s commitment to hard-hitting journalism pushes CatCo reporters to dig deeper in the pursuit of excellence. He’s a man who tells people what he thinks of them, and his no-holds barred approach pushes Kara (Melissa Benoist) in unexpected ways. (In the comics, Snapper Carr was a supporting civilian Justice League character.)”
Supergirl Season 2 is set to premiere on Monday, October 10 at 8/7c on its new home, The CW.
