Calista Flockhart will return as Cat Grant for the final episodes of The CW’s SUPERGIRL season 2. The news comes after the announcement that Tyler Hoechlin will also return as Superman in the season 2 finale of the show.

No info on why Cat is back at CatCo, but, she is the head of the huge media conglomerate in the DCTV universe. Kara Danvers aka Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is currently employed as a reporter there, after working as Grant’s assistant in season 1. Flockhart only appeared in the first two episodes of Season 2, then left to pursue other interests. She left James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) in charge in the meantime. Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg said back in October that he hoped Flockhart would return, though it was only a matter of getting her schedule right.

Currently, the show is on hiatus and returns on Monday, April 24 with an all new episode titled “Ace Reporter. It is described as the following:

Lena’s (guest star Katie McGrath) ex-boyfriend, Jack Spheer (guest star Rahul Kohl), comes to National City to unveil his big breakthrough in nano-technology, which has the potential to eradicate all diseases. Lena asks Kara to attend Jack’s conference with her for support. When Kara sees Snapper (guest star Ian Gomez) in attendance she’s inspired to tap back into her reporter skills and questions Jack on his discovery, which ultimately leads to a bigger investigation that puts everyone in danger.

Armen V. Kevorkian directed the episode, which was written by Paula Yoo & Caitlin Parrish.

Starring Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Laura Benanti, Calista Flockhart, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, with Dean Cain and Helen Slater. Season 2 features recurring roles for Katie McGrath, Floriana Lima, and Lynda Carter.

The season 2 finale airs on Monday, May 22 at 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
