Calista Flockhart has reached an agreement with the “Supergirl” producers to return for the upcoming second season as Cat Grant albeit in a reduced capacity.
Flockhart, a regular in the first season which was filmed in Los Angeles, will officially be a recurring guest star next season which is being filmed in Vancouver. Flockhart flies to the Canadian city tomorrow ahead of production which starts next week.
Flockhart has been very specific in her acting choices, only taking jobs that are based in Los Angeles where her family lives. Keeping her onboard as the production moved and as she was not obligated to continue proved problematic.
The agreement now sees Flockhart to Vancouver every few weeks and will do as many scenes as she can – most likely shooting her scenes for multiple episodes with each trip. She also retains her original series-regular contract in terms of pay.
“Supergirl” returns to The CW in October.
