SUPERGIRL: Mehcad Brooks Will Depart The Superhero Series In The First Half Of Season Five

After getting word that Jeremy Jordan would be returning for a three-episode arc next season, it's being reported that Supergirl is losing a key cast member as Mehcad Brooks has announced his departure.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Mehcad Brooks will be departing Supergirl in the first half of the upcoming fifth season. He'll be leaving on his own accord in order to focus on furthering his feature film career and develop a cable series in which he would star in the lead role. He's also in the midst of writing a book. 

Brooks has been with the superhero series since its debut in 2015, and his departure now leaves only three original cast members - Melissa Benoist, Chyler Leigh & David Harewood - as part of the season five cast.  

No word yet on how his Jimmy Olsen will be written off, nor is there any information regarding his possible availability for the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover, but showrunners Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller are leaving the door open for him to return down the line. 

We love Mehcad and we’re sad to see him leave the show as a series regular, but we’re excited for both Mehcad and James Olsen’s future. He’ll always be a part of our Supergirl family and we look forward to James returning to National City at some point to visit his sister and his super friends.

Season three saw Supergirl stop Reign and the other Worldkillers’ threat to humanity and our planet, and in the process, Kara was shocked to find her mother Alura alive and living in a salvaged Argo City that survived the destruction of Krypton. Reconnecting with her past caused Kara to realize that her true home is now here on Earth, where big changes are taking place for her and all of her friends in National City – and also, it appears, for a doppelganger in Russia! Season four promises to be full of surprises, action, adventure and lots of big revelations for Supergirl, Alex, James, J’onn, Lena and Brainy.
