According to TVLine, The now-CW drama has tapped erstwhile Wonder Woman Lynda Carter to recur in Season 2 as the President of the United States.
Last March, Supergirl EP Greg Berlanti revealed that he tried — and failed — to lasso Carter for a Season 1 guest stint, telling reporters he had a “perfect role” in mind for the TV icon, but they “couldn’t work out her schedule.” He called it the “biggest disappointment for me this entire season.” Berlanti later confirmed that the role was the “female president of the United States.”
Carter played TV’s Wonder Woman from 1975-1979. She’ll make her Supergirl debut in Season 2’s third episode. The only thing that could make fans happier is a 24 homage. After all, Supergirl and POTUS would be the ultimate duo to save the day.
