Supergirl: Jon Cryer To Recur As Lex Luthor For Season 4

Variety is reporting Jon Cryer will be recurring in the fourth season of superhero drama series Supergirl as Lex Luthor.


After Supergirl defeated Queen Rhea and her Daxamite army at the end of the second season, the third season focused on Kara Danvers having to battle against Kryptonian worldkiller known as Reign, who was also transported to Earth just before Krypton’s destruction.

The fourth season will see Kara having to take on Agent Liberty.
