Former LOIS & CLARK Star Teri Hatcher Joins SUPERGIRL Season 2 As A Major Villain

Teri Hatcher, television's former Lois Lane, is heading to Supergirl! But, this time she won't exactly be a friend to the House of El as she'll be playing the second season's big bad! Come take a look!

It sounds like Dean Cain won't be the only Lois & Clark star to make their way to National City, as it's being widely reported that Teri Hatcher has also joined the cast of Supergirl season two in a major recurring role - however, unlike her former co-star, who plays Kara's adoptive father, she'll be breathing life into a role that's being described as the show's next prominent villain. Further details on the villain in question weren't provided, but she's expected to make her debut later this winter.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg released a statement following the announcement where he expressed his excitement at getting an opportunity to work with Hatcher: "No offense to any of the wonderful actresses who have also played the part, but Teri Hatcher is my all-time favorite Lois Lane, to have her come back to the SuperWorld in a completely different part is an unbelievable gift to me, Greg [Berlanti], and the fans.

This marks Hatcher's second return to The CW, having previously guest-starred on the tenth season of Smallville as Ella Lane where she provided some timely guidance for her daughter Lois, played by Erica Durance. The move also reunites Hatcher with her former Desperate Housewives co-stars Mehcad Brooks, who plays Jimmy Olsen a.k.a. Guardian, and Brenda Strong, who plays another baddie, Lillian Luthor.

Hatcher is best known for her starring roles as Lois Lane on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman for four seasons and as Susan Mayer on Desperate Housewives for eight seasons. She currently recurs on the CBS comedy The Odd Couple alongside Matthew Perry & Thomas Lennon and is also in the midst of filming Jason Mewes' directorial debut Madness in the Method.

So, what do you guys think? Who do you think Hatcher will be playing? Sound off with your thoughts below!



The hour-long drama centers on Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin, who was born on the planet Krypton and escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she has been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
