TVLine is exclusively reporting that Jeremy Jordan, who has been a series regular since the first season of Supergirl, will be moving to a recurring role for the upcoming fourth season of the DC drama series.
After Supergirl defeated Queen Rhea and her Daxamite army at the end of the second season, the third season focuses on Kara Danvers having to battle against Kryptonian worldkiller known as Reign, who was also transported to Earth just before Krypton’s destruction. Living out her life as Samantha Arias, she remained unaware of her origins until her powers started to manifest, then becoming Supergirl’s biggest adversary.
Jeremy Jordan (whose other credits include The Last Five Years and Smash) has been playing the role of Winn Schott since the series premiere, who would help Kara during their time at CatCo, helping her develop her Supergirl costume and aid her in her adventures. As the series progressed, Winn left CatCo to work at the DEO and even helps James Olsen become the vigilante known as Guardian.
Executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller spoke to TVLine about the news, saying:
We love Jeremy, and even though he’s (not going to be around full-time), we’re not saying goodbye to Winn at all. We’re already breaking big stories for him right now for the fall, and I think the fans will be excited to see what he has coming up.
