well this is a shocker (or maybe not). Entertainment Weekly has revealed that Floriana will not be a regular cast member in Season 3. It was a bit odd when the description for Season 3 was released and Floriana’s name was missing. Alarm bells started ringing but we had the season finale to get through so everyone concentrated on that rather than the Season 3 description. The other thing that may have lulled people into a false sense of security was that Cat Grant and Mon-El were listed as regular characters. Well we know what happened to Mon-El (he’s currently somewhere inside a wormhole and unable to return to Earth due to the Iron in the atmosphere that is lethal to Daxamites). Let’s hope Cat Grant is back because we missed her! [Update: TVLine has confirmed that Cat is NOT back as a regular character for Season 3]

So what does this all mean for #Sanvers fans? Floriana has confirmed via twitter that she was only scheduled to be in Season 2. Could it have been that she was scheduled to die at the hands of the Daxamites but the actress and the character became such a huge fan hit that Maggie wasn’t killed? We don’t know but what we do know is that Floriana WILL be in Season 3 but not as a regular character. See tweet below:

Andrew Kreisburg said (via EW):

Lima’s role has been reduced because she is “looking to pursue other opportunities.” 

“We adore Floriana and have loved working with her to tell this inspiring story,” said Kreisberg. “Although she’s not available to us as a series regular next season, as she’s looking to pursue other opportunities, we’re happy she’ll be returning for multiple episodes in Season 3.”

So before we all hyperventilate and get upset – Flo will be back, Sanvers is still alive and kicking and there may still be wedding bells. We will just have to wait and see what happens.
