American actress Calista Flockhart is returning as Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) boss Cat Grant for “Supergirl” season 2 but as a recurring guest star.
Earlier in May, Flockhart had reportedly agreed to remain on the show, but it wasn’t clear in how many episodes she would appear.
Now, it is confirmed that the “Ally McBeal” star will appear in multiple episodes of season 2, beginning with the season premiere, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The actress was a series regular in the first season, but when the show moved from CBS to The CW, the production also moved from Los Angeles to Vancouver. The Los Angeles-based actress was unwilling to leave her family to move to Vancouver.
She is expected to join production in Vancouver next week.
“‘Supergirl’ wouldn’t be ‘Supergirl’ without the amazing Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
“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,” Kreisberg added.
“Supergirl” season 2 will begin on October 10.
