Just about everyone and their cat have been cast in CW’s Supergirl TV show. It’s no surprise then that Lois & Clark‘s Teri Hatcher has also found her way onto the set.
WB and The CW have recently announced that Hatcher, who played Lois in the Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman TV series that aired from 1993 to 1997, will play a mysterious role in a multi-episode arc. Dean Cain, who played opposite Hatcher as Clark Kent/Superman, has also appeared in four episodes of Supergirl.
“No offense to any of the wonderful actresses who have also played the part, but Teri Hatcher is my all-time favorite Lois Lane,” Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer on Supergirl, said in a statement. “To have her come back to the SuperWorld in a completely different part is an unbelievable gift to me, Greg [Berlanti], and the fans.”
Hatcher is probably most famous for playing Susan Delfino in ABC’s Desperate Housewives. The date of her first appearance on Supergirl has not been set yet, but she is rumoured to appear as a villain later in the season.
