We knew it was a risk, but it seems that when Supergirl movies to The CW next season, it’ll suffer a lack of Cat Grant.

When the show moves to Vancouver we reported a couple of weeks ago (here) it will make work commitments difficult for LA-based Calista Flockhart who plays Cat.

And, frankly, while we liked the charm of Supergirl, Cat was a big part of the show’s appeal.

The CW chief Mark Pedowitz has said they are in discussions with Flockhart and they are “happy to have her in whatever capacity is worked out.”

The CW seemed sure that the show’s move would be painless and wouldn’t see any major changes t the show, but it seems this is one so far.

Pedowitz said: “I don’t think it will have a major effect on how [the Supergirl producers] actualize what they do.”

It looks like obstacles will be met and overcome.

We can’t wait to have Kara and the team in The Cw.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
