Lynda Carter, who is beloved for her iconic portrayal of Wonder Woman in the 1970’s television show of the same name, has been cast in the CW’s second season of Supergirl.
While many of us here were hoping to see that iconic Wonder Woman twirl one more time, Carter will be playing the President of the United States in a recurring role for the series. Looks like Carter is never going to shy away from playing strong women, and we are definitely looking forward to seeing her portray the leader of the free world.
After producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg teased Carter’s involvement in the first season, scheduling conflicts made it appear that she would be unable to be on the show after all. Carter has been cast in the recurring role for the much anticipated second season of Supergirl and we could not be more thrilled to see her involved with all things superhuman.
This won’t be the first time Carter has appeared on a DC-centric CW tv series, as she played Moira Sullivan (Chloe’s mom) on Smallville.
This announcement fell quickly on the heels of the news that Superman himself will be played by Tyler Hoechlin in the new season, which will premiere on October 10th at 8 pm. Supergirl‘s second season was picked up by the CW after the first seasons premiere on CBS.
Stay tuned for more super news as it develops!
