Chris Wood Departs Supergirl

If you've seen the season finale of Supergirl, then you already have a feeling that there are big changes coming for the show. We reported earlier that Jeremy Jordan's character, Winn, will be taking a reduced roll next season. This was easily accomplished through the story of him having to go to the future in Brainiac-5's place to help save future AI's. Now, TVLine.com is reporting that the show runners have concluded their time with Mon-El as well. Both Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller confirmed the news. Rovner stated:

The plan for Chris was always to have him on the show for two years. We’ve loved telling Mon-El’s story, as well as the story we’ve told for him and Kara. We hope the fans felt that it was a satisfying conclusion.

Adding to the sentimate was Jessica Queller:

They both have destinies in different times as heroes. What they did was the sort of Casablanca decision of putting what’s most important to them — which is saving the world — first. It’s a little bittersweet that one destiny is to be a hero in this time and one’s destiny is to run the Legion in another time, but I think they grew a lot from knowing one another. They have respect for one another, and they have a respect for the decisions they respectively made.

This is likely not the only shake up we'll be hearing about officially now that the season is over. Let us know your thoughts on Chris' exit in the comments below and in the forum!

Stewart, I too am "old." Funnily enough, I do not like CBS crime dramas at all! I do, though, love Supergirl (not the other superhero shows). As you suggest, however people may like to categorise, we are all individuals.
I am a name not a number!


Yes, you are a name but only to other humans. For everything else you need a freaking number. Think about it.

"These types of shows will NEVER have the smae audience, the target audience of CBS is old people who love crime stuff. Who would never bother with watching a colorful action adventure show with scifi elements."

Well, of course I can't speak for all "old people". But speaking as a 65-year-old card-carrying member of the American Chemical Society, I would say that I've been around the block a few times. Yes, I realize that I am in the target audience of CBS-TV, and do enjoy their crime shows. I also happen to love a colorful action adventure show with sci-fi elements. And I happen to know a number of my contemporaries who feel the same way...


It's always been my understanding that the main audience for the sci-fi action shows are men and children. lol

Comparing a comic book adapted TV series to any other shows is futile. None of the shows that are being compared have the comiclore attached to them, a history that spans decades and 1000s of stories, that the Supers have...and that lore needs to be a part of this series in order to keep the base which are the comicbook readers. They don't say a lot, they don't spend a lot of time on twitter, but they watch the heck out of these shows. This season moved away from that, and only gave it lip service by calling a group of people from the future the Legion and by calling a Green Martian, Martian Manhunter...but never fulfilling the dream of bringing those comicbook figures to life. You want to grow Supergirl's audience you do it by getting back the CB lovers who have left. They are streaming watchers, and many are Nielsen peeps...The loss of a ship is not going to tank this show, the loss of knowing where it comes from can. I love Chris, he is just a spectacular young man. But, his character finished its arc and the ending IMO was a beautiful one between him and Kara. I'm sorry that some aren't happy, but don't tank a CB show on Twitter because your ship is done. That is not what the show is about, it will never be what the show is about. Season 3 lost its way after about Ep. 10....and it found its way back in about the last 40 minutes of the finale...and then to end on a cliffhanger solely with Kara gives me hope, a strong hope that next season we once again see storylines with the common thread of Supergirl/Kara. We did not have that this season. I know many say that it was Mon-el that took that time, I believe it was Alex. But OOOOOOH how I loved it coming back around to the sisters. I believe the writers have taken back Supergirl, and given her back to the fans that love her. Just my 2 cents..... As far as Chris, I believe he has so many great things ahead for him. I wish him the best.

Obviously, we don't agree on what should go into the show and that's perfectly okay. You watch the show for the ships and I don't - again, that's okay. However, please don't make broad generalizations about the viewers of shows. When Supergirl was on CBS, it had over 5 million viewers that consisted of many different people with varying demographics and interests. Many of those same people followed the show to the CW and now help maintain the 1-2 million viewing crowd. So, yes, some of the same people who watch crime dramas also enjoy watching "colorful action adventure show's with scifi elements".

Just because they say he is not in s4 does not mean he can have guest stints. How can they even bring back Winn without Mon-El does not make sense too me. They are on same team.

That's literally what that means lol he's not in s4 means he won't be in s4, it's that straightforward. That's why I said maybe he'll have a guest appearance or two in a future season.

Winn could easily return without Mon-El by his side. Heck, they probably won't even show how Winn returns, just that he's now back. Maybe the Legion drops him off, who knows. But what we do know is that Chris isn't going to be around next season. And unless they recast Mon-El that means no Mon-El either.


Actually i do not think that is what it means just because they say he will not be in season 4 does not mean he can't have guest stints in it. He is not in the main or recuring cast anymore. But he can like ANY actor have guest stints and that includes S4 and beyond. To be a guest actor in episodes have nothing to do with main or recuring cast on a tv show.

Look, if you wanna live in a bubble of false hope that's on you. But all signs are pointing to him being gone for the foreseeable future. My unsolicited advice, accept that he's gone and move on, if not you're just gonna be disappointed time and time again.

I wish Chris all the best. He's a fine actor and I'm positive he'll find a new exciting role soon enough :)

As for Mon-El, it's no secret I was never a fan, but even I felt his exit was done poorly. That being said, they did leave a crack in the door for a future guest appearance (maybe in like s6 or something) but as of now he's gone, not returning, and I'm okay with that. I've shared here before that I felt his arc was over after this season and it turns out I was right. Mon-El has bigger and better things to do in the future with the Legion (and this really makes me want a LoSH spin-off).
