“Supergirl” Returns With Trailer & Oscar Nominee

This year’s Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf guest stars on the mid-season premiere of “Supergirl” which returns from a several month hiatus on April 16th.

In the episode, titled “Schott Through the Heart,” Winn (Jeremy Jordan) learns his father, the criminal known as The Toyman, has died. His estranged mother Mary (Laurie Metcalf), reappears trying to reconnect and to explain why she abandoned him all those years ago.

Winn is too embittered from his rough childhood to forgive her but when a copycat Toyman attacks, the two must work together to stop them. Glen Winter directed the episode which The CW has released a new promo for below:
