It looks like Supergirl fans will be seeing a lot less Maggie Sawyer. TVLine reports Floriana Lima will not be returning as a series regular for season three of the CW TV show.
Lima joined the DC series in season two as Detective Maggie Sawyer. The cast also includes Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, Floriana Lima, and Chris Wood.
Though Lima will not be a regular on Supergirl, she will apparently return for a few episodes of season three. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released this statement:
We adore Floriana and have loved working with her to tell this inspiring story. Although she’s not available to us as a series regular next season, as she’s looking to pursue other opportunities, we’re happy she’ll be returning for multiple episodes in Season 3.”
Lima isn’t the only cast member set to recur in season three. Earlier, we reported former regular Calista Flockhart will also not be returning to the The CW series full time. Season three of Supergirl is slated to debut this fall.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Supergirl? Are you sad you’ll see less of Floriana Lima?
I liked Maggie on the show until she hurt Alex, after that I stopped caring. She deserves someone better who won’t play with her feelings.
It’s A terrible SJW show and should be canceled, why else do they want to do so many crossovers with Flash and Arrow. What was the final straw for me is that they made a point of having Superman say, not once but twice, I was at full strength and you beat me. Kryptonians get their power from earths yellow sun and Superman was on earth for 25 to 30 years before supergirl showed up. Before anyone starts calling me sexist, I would be saying the same thing if their roles were reversed, if she had been absorbing what gives… Read more »
There’s a lot of things wrong with this show, esp Kryptonite not affecting Kara or Kryptonians like it should – instead of weakening em & killing em, it just makes em human. But it’s still a great & enjoyable show with a great cast. Even tho, sadly, it won’t be a legendary show like Smallville. We’ll see how the rest of the series turns out.
I will miss Floriana Lima’s character, Maggie as a regular on the show. Alex and Maggie were my favorite couple in the series. Chyler Leigh is a fantastic actress, and she really proved it in the second season. I wish all the best for Floriana and hope to see her in more then 7 episodes in the 3rd season.
I was really hoping Calista was back for good I love her character and she plays it so well!!
It is the actress’ choice. So good for her that she wants to pursue other projects. She is a pretty good actress and was only used to prop up the Alex character. Hope she gets some good projects now that she is more known.
Hope we get a hotter sexier steamier sex interest for the great Chyler Leigh.
