calistaWhile we were all excited about the news of Supergirl Season 2 being picked up by CW, there was some disquiet / angst on whether Calista Flockhart who plays the incredible Cat Grant (and one of the reasons I wanted to watch this show) would be back. Supergirl was filmed in Los Angeles and that’s where all the cast lived.

Season 2 sees the cast move to Vancouver and the question was ‘Would Calista move to Vancouver’ or will she be in Season 2. IGN is reporting that Calista will be in Season 2 as a recurring guest star. Exec producer Andrew Kreisberg had this to say about Calista’s return:

“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.”

WBTV confirms she begins production on Season 2 in Vancouver next week, and will appear in multiple episodes including the season premiere.

We got the news on July 18 that Ian Gomez has been cast in the role of Snapper Carr – the new Editor-in-Chief. EW says…

On Supergirl, Snapper Carr is a headstrong, sharp-witted newsman, hired by Cat Grant (Calista Flockhart) to be the editor-in-chief ofCatCo 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.)
