the original season two

anonymous asked:

Do you know if the show was originally planned for two or four seasons? Idk, but the show gives me the impression that Nefcy's original concept finished with BfM.

Hard to tell, since Disney greenlights seasons one by one, but as far as I know the renewal for S3 came very early, when S2 was still far from being done, while the renewal for S4 came a bit later (or at leas that’s the impression I got from the comments of some storyboarders). Since S1 introduced Heinous and the Blood Moon so early to then barely address them in S2 I think a third one was planned if not from the beginning from very early in production. It’s possible that they then adapted it once a fourth one was approved, taking more time to explore the characters and the lore, or changing some things around. Would be interesting to get an official answer about things like this, to get to know how the overarching writing for a show like this works!

“I need to know something… before I get any more confused. And everytime I kiss you, I’m always left even more confused than I ever was. But before I get on a plane and go anywhere, before I discover what it actually feels like to be in the same room with you, before I know what it really feels like to have these lips against mine and not just in my head, something I might be imagining, I need to know something.”


“Something true.”

“I’ve never lied to you.”

“But you haven’t told me the whole truth either.”

“If I told you the whole truth, if I told you that you’re the last thought I have before I sleep, if I told you that you’re the first thought I have when I wake, if I told you…”

“Tell me.”

“… how much I love you, would it have done any good?”



“Because it would help me admit how much I love you.”

ERICA DURANCE to play Kara’s mother on SUPERGIRL! 

Erica Durance, famous for playing Lois Lane on Smallville, will take over the role of Kara’s (late) biological mother Alura Zor-El when the CW drama returns this fall. Alura, who made appearances throughout the show’s first two seasons, was originally played by Laura Benanti. “Unfortunately Laura…was unable to continue in the role due to work commitments in [New York],” says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “But we are so blessed that Erica has come aboard to offer her own interpretation of Kara’s mother. We had tremendous success with a former Lois Lane last season with Teri Hatcher. We know Erica will continue the proud tradition of legacy actors joining our shows and creating new and exciting takes on classic DC characters.”
