Supergirl Star Melissa Benoist Wants To Appear On Superman & Lois

Superman and Lois star Elizabeth Tulloch has revealed that Melissa Benoist wants to return as Supergirl in the superhero drama series.

The actor, who currently portrays Lois Lane on The CW series, recently attended Fan Expo Canada 2022 with her co-star Tyler Hoechlin, who portrays the titular Man of Steel. The actors were asked to respond to a rumor that had been circulating that claimed Benoist would be appearing in the upcoming third season of Superman and Lois. “We have not heard that rumor about her coming on the show,” Tulloch said. “She has expressed interest to me in doing it, and I know that we would love to work with her again and Grant [Gustin] and everyone else. I just don’t know…ever since we started the show, COVID has been a reality which is why we haven’t done any of the crossovers or anything like that, so we just can’t speak to whether or not that’s feasible.”

Benoist played Kara Danvers/Supergirl in all six seasons of Supergirl, which aired from 2015 to 2021, as well as in several crossover appearances on The Flash and other Arrowverse series. If Benoist did appear on Superman and Lois there is a chance that she would be playing an entirely new version of the Girl of Steel since the Season 2 finale of Superman and Lois established that the DC series was set in its own world, separate from Earth-Prime which is Benoist’s Supergirl, Grant Gustin’s The Flash and the Legends of Tomorrow. Showrunner Todd Helbing explained the decision to not set Superman and Lois on Earth-Prime was done to allow the creative team the opportunity to put their “own stamp on the Superman property.”

A Seventh Season Of Supergirl, Possibly Without Benoist, Was Pitched To The CW

If Supergirl had gone on for more than six seasons, the series would have continued without its titular Girl of Steel.

At the Ultimate Crisis convention, new details were revealed regarding Supergirl‘s final season. Originally, the Arrowverse series was set to conclude with Season 7. However, since “the cast was tired, they merged it with the sixth.” Jessica Queller, who was a writer on Supergirl for the first three seasons and an executive producer on the last three, reportedly pitched a Kara-less Season 7 to The CW, but the network turned down the idea. No additional details were revealed regarding what Season 7 of Supergirl would have looked like without Melissa Benoist’s Kara Danvers.

Supergirl premiered on CBS in 2015 but moved to The CW after Season 1. The DC series ran for 126 episodes across six seasons with the series finale being released in November 2021. The two-part series finale, titled “Kara,” ended with Kara Danvers becoming CatCo’s new editor-in-chief and revealing her identity as Supergirl to the world through an exclusive televised interview with Cat Grant. Benoist played Kara Danvers/Supergirl in all six seasons of Supergirl as well as several crossover appearances in The Flash and other Arrowverse series.
