Well now that the SDCC is over for another year, we have a round up of Supergirl Season 5 casting and news!
Who is in?
- Winn is Back!: Jeremy Jordan is back for Season 5 (but only for 3 episodes after the crossover)
- Brianiac-5: Actor Meaghan Rath is set to join Supergirl as a new Brainiac-5. Meaghan is Jesse Rath’s sister!
- Superman: Brandon Routh would be suiting up as Superman alongside Supergirl’s Tyler Hoechlin during Crisis on Infinite Earths.
- Lex Luthor: Jon Cryer is back as Lex Luthor (how since he died at the end of Season 4? No one stays dead really, do they?! Comicsbeat says: “it was confirmed on that panel that Cryer would return for the new season, even though Lex apparently died at the end of the previous year. Cryer did call into question exactly which version of Lex he would be playing, which seemed to indicate that we’ll see different iterations of Lex from across the multiverse.”
- Andrea Rojas: TVweb says: “Julie Conzalo will appear as iconic DC character Andrea Rojas (aka Acrata), A polished businesswoman and heir to a Central American tech empire. The studio announced Rojas is making a hostile advance into the world of media. Unapologetic and unafraid to make waves, she also holds a mystical secret. We can expect to see Rojas in the season premiere on Sunday, October 6.“
- William Dey: Staz Nair, who you might know from Game of Thrones where he played Daenerys supporter and Dothraki warrior Qhono. Nair will play original character reporter William Dey. On the surface, he’s a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story – but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic. Nair (AMC’s Humans) will also make his debut in the season premiere.
Who is Out?
- James Olson: Mehcad Brooks has indicated he has some creative endeavours he wants to pursue and has decided to leave the show. We wish Mechad all the best.
- Supergirl’s Old Suit: Bye bye skirt! HELLO PANTS!
