Thanks to Deadline, we have a first look at Lynda Carter on the set of the CW’s Supergirl. The photos show Carter as President Olivia Marsdin meeting with Supergirl and visiting the DEO.
Lynda Carter Fills Some Hard-Hitting Shoes
Season two of Supergirl premiered last night, but Carter was nowhere to be seen. These first-look pictures, however, promise that she’s on her way to National City–and SOON. Thank goodness, too. Now that production moved to Canada, we’re getting less of Calista Flockhart’s already-iconic Cat Grant. Carter will hopefully fill the void of girl-power left behind.
This season picks up where we left off at the end of season one: with escalating problems between humans and aliens in National City. The DEO brings in President Marsdin for added protection in their areas of expertise. While Carter is confirmed for multiple episodes, no word yet on whether she’ll become a regular or not.
Carter follows on the heels of several other DC cameos. Season one invited Dean Caine (Lois and Clark) and Helen Slater (Supergirl) as Kara’s adoptive Earth parents. Carter makes her debut in episode three of this season, “Welcome to Earth”.
Based on DC Comics characters, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist (Kara Danvers), Chyler Leigh (Alex Danvers), Calista Flockhart (Cat Grant), Mechad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen), Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott), and David Harewood (Hank Henshaw). This season is available Monday nights, 8:00PM on the CW. “Welcome to Earth” was directed by Rachel Talalay and written Jessica Queller and Derek Simon.
