Supergirl’s Chris Wood will not return to CW series
Following the events of last night’s Supergirl season 3 finale, TVLine reports that Chris Wood will no longer be a series regular for The CW series. Chris Wood’s character Mon El has been sent forward in time again, subsequently bringing Mon El’s two season story arch to a close.
Executive Producer Robert Rovner says,“The plan for Chris was always to have him on the show for two years. We’ve loved telling Mon-El’s story, as well as the story we’ve told for him and Kara. We hope the fans felt that it was a satisfying conclusion.”
Executive Producer Jessica Queller adds, “They both have destinies in different times as heroes. What they did was the sort-of Casablanca decision of putting what’s most important to them — which is saving the world — first. It’s a little bittersweet that one destiny is to be a hero in this time and one’s destiny is to run the Legion in another time, but I think they grew a lot from knowing one another.”
As always though with the DC Arrow-verse shows, Chris Wood’s exit does not mean that Mon El is gone forever as the finale leaves the door open for the Daxam prince to return to National City.
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow ‘Winn’ Schott, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Odette Annable as Sam/Reign, and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onnz.
Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
