Calista Flockhart is set to return as Cat Grant in the SUPERGIRL Season 3 premiere. The news was revealed by new showrunners Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner ahead of the series’ panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. She is also expected to recur later on in the season.

Leading star Melissa Benoist told EW:

“The way that Calista appears in the first episode is really clever.”

Flockhart was one of the original cast members of the show when it first aired on CBS, however, she was later a recurring guest-star in Season 2 when production moved to Vancouver when the show jumped to The CW network. She appeared in the first two episodes of Season 2, which saw Cat decide it was time to move on from CatCo. In the finale, she made a return to National City to help Supergirl with the Daxamite invasion.

SUPERGIRL returns on Monday, October 9 at 8PM ET/PT on The CW.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the South China Sea.

After years of denying himself his own life as Oliver Queen in order to be The Arrow, Oliver left Startling City with Felicity and make a home in suburbia. But their newly tranquil lives are upended when an evil new organization, H.I.V.E., takes over the newly-christened Star City. Oliver is forced to don the hood once more… but can he keep his aim as The Arrow without losing the life he has fought so hard to get back?

The CW has released their first trailer for THE FLASH Season 4, which can be seen down below!

It’s already been announced that Neil Sandilands will play the baddie for this season, The Thinker. Danny Trejo will also join playing Breacher, a feared bounty hunter from Earth-19 and father of Jessica Camacho’s Gypsy, and Kim Engelbrech, as The Mechanic, the right hand of The Thinker.

As previously teased by villain Abra Kadabra, The Thinker (aka Clifford DeVoe) is a mad genius inventor that has mind control and telekinesis powers via his “Thinking Cap.” The character first appeared in All-Flash #12 in 1943 where he tormented the first Flash, Jay Garrick. He would go on to fight against the likes of Wonder Woman and The Atom and also appears as a member of the Suicide Squad and Injustice Society.

Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive– The Flash. But when Barry used his extraordinary abilities to travel back in time and save his mother’s life, he inadvertently created an alternate timeline known as Flashpoint; a phenomenon that gave birth to the villainous speed god known as Savitar, and changed the lives of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) forever. With the help of his adoptive father, Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), his lifelong best friend and love interest Iris West (Candice Patton), and his friends at S.T.A.R. Labs– Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), C.S.I. Julian Albert (Tom Felton), and an Earth-19 novelist named H.R Wells (Tom Cavanagh)– Barry continues to protect the people of Central City from the meta-humans that threaten it.

Season 3 left Team Flash, Barry Allen trapped inside the speed force and the best team in the business was trying to free him.

Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Todd Helbing, and Sarah Schechter. The series is produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
