David Harewood Remains Series Regular

Any TV show is going to have turnover. It's just how the industry works. Some characters conclude their story arcs, and others get offered new opportunities. Sometimes we even see actors choosing to look for new opportunities. The talented cast of Supergirl rates among the highest in skill and craft any TV show can have. With Jeremy Jordan, his singing talents were calling him home and in a heart felt message to fans (you can read below) reflected his desire to semi-move on. In Chris Wood's case, it was that Mon-El's story had concluded according to Executive Producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. This too happens from time to time. Fans then went on to speculate that after the monumental changes in the season 3 finale, David Harewood might be stepping away or taking a reduced role on the show. Well space dad fans can rest easy as the man himself, David Harewood (recent United Kingdom Goalkeeper Hero), has put those rumors to rest! Hear from him yourself in the video below!

As many of you have heard by now, Winn will no longer be a series regular on Supergirl. However, this is not goodbye. Although you may not see him puttering around the DEO every week. I love everyone in National City too much to stay away forever. Winn WILL return in season 4. Nevertheless, I wanted to say a few words.

I came to LA three and a half years ago searching for a new adventure, and in a matter of weeks, I was best friends with a super hero. I mean, come on. It's been the adventure of a lifetime, and breathing life into that brilliant, quirky, puppy dog nugget named Winn has been a true joy. But lately, my gut has been telling me that I'm once again ready to begin a new chapter in my life... and if I've learned anything, its that you gotta listen to your gut. So I want to thank everyone behind the scenes at Supergirl for understanding it was time for me to return home... to spend time with my wife and friends, and focus on crafting the next stage of my career.

I also want to thank all the incredible fans of the show for your kindness, humor, patience, and most of all, your support. Finally, a special thank you to my Supergirl family. More than anything else, I'm going to miss spending every day with you amazing, beautiful dorks. However, as I have said, this is not goodbye. Your favorite little cardigan wearing hobbit has plenty of stories left to tell. See you in the future.

So, he left the DEO to help people. What better position then the bartender/owner of the unnamed alien dive bar! Could actually give it a name, such as "The Green Room" or "J'onn's Joint".
This is a great idea!

Lastly, Alex, big disappointment. She just got that cool new suit and she's going to hang it up? Doesn't seem right.
I suspect Alex won't have an easy time leaving field work behind. Being director doesn't mean she can't go into the field, she's the boss so she makes the rules. Didn't she tell Sam "Turns out I needed more excitement than an excel spreadsheet". The DEO is frequently attacked and there's no way Alex is going to run from a fight in her house. We may see Alex start waiting for backup before jumping of a building but she's still going to jump if she has no other choice. What I wish for Alex in season four is for her to go on dates, not be in a relationship but actively dating. Lets have a scene with Kara helping Alex get ready for a date to mirror the one of Alex helping Kara in the pilot. Hopefully Kara can talk to Alex about why she feels the need to rush into adoption.

"Sam was "back to normal" with human DNA. She wasn't human. Where did the human DNA come from?"

Although the writers didn't specifically tell us so, I took it that the water from that "magic spring" that gave Sam's human side power, also gave her human DNA in place of the Kryptonian. (Hey, it's "magic" - you know, like Mr. Mxyzptlk, who can really do anything, right?)

"Lastly, Alex, big disappointment. She just got that cool new suit and she's going to hang it up? Doesn't seem right."

Maybe she won't hang it up altogether. This is a TV show, and there's lots of dramatic license, like on the "cop shows". They always have police chiefs and other administrators shooting it out with the bad guys on TV (when in reality they would be typing reports and preparing budget requests back at the precinct offices!).

Quoting Kiwi:


I'd be happy if we didn't see any Martian Manhunter in Season 4 and Supergirl was the only Superhero on the show. Thing I noticed in Season 3 was the VFX $$$ were spread around lots of different characters and we had a lot less Supergirl action and superpowers as a result. So more VFX $$$ being spent on Supergirl in Season 4 would be the best. I would definitely like to see more of Supergirl's Superstrength and Flying.


Same here! Or use the money saved for VFX of Supergirl's adversaries or the big bad(s) and other supporting VFX's. With her doppelganger/time remnant introduced, they'll need every bit of it. The showrunners could be showing some real good foresight there. :lol:

Really nice to hear especially from David himself. His ending in the Season 3 finale made it look like he was leaving the show but good to know he's not and I'll look forward to what story they have for him in Season 4.

I liked that David called us "Supergirlers" :-) .

Quoting Triggy:
With no superpowered character/hero casting announced so far,Kara seems to be the only one for season 4. For my selfish reasons (Lol) I hope they keep it that way.

I'm glad David isn't leaving too. We need Space Dad to stay. But I'm happy for Jeremy. I wish nothing but the best for him.

Mon El leaving was the end of his arc, period. Why can't a duck just be a duck?
Winn leaving was a shocker. Still having many feels about that.
I'd love to have Sam and Ruby back, but I think that ship sailed. What I don't understand is how Sam was "back to normal" with human DNA. She wasn't human. Where did the human DNA come from?
Lastly, Alex, big disappointment. She just got that cool new suit and she's going to hang it up? Doesn't seem right.

This is really good news to hear from David. Space Dad is one of my favorite characters. It will definitely be odd not seeing him in the DEO but, I'll be interested in what they have in store for him. I only hope that putting Alex in charge doesn't mean that she isn't out in the field kicking butt as much because that's the Alex that I also enjoy watching.

Naturally we’re in another Mon-El fight......
#15 RE: David Harewood Remains Series RegularThalolli 2018-06-21 02:18
But he ISN'T coming back for guest appearances. Or else he could just have been reoccurring.

And if he was so chill with how things went and if it's just a great natural ending to his "always planned like this" arc that the fans should be totally satisfied with, why isn't he giving an exit interview where he praises how great the experience was and lauds the ending? Naw, whoever was at fault (he wanted out or wanted more money or whatever and the writers gave him an intentionally sucky ending or the writers forced him out) it sure seems like this ended with some bad blood.

Whether he was forced off or not, doesn't change that the way people are acting about it is totally repulsive. So much for a show that is supposed to stand for hope and goodness, it sure seems to attract a lot of completely hateful and vile fans who enjoy making other people miserable. Including people like Rahul or Mecad who really had nothing to do with anything.

No so fast on the Tin Foil hats. The show producers did comment on Mon-Els reason for leaving and it was always supposed to be that way. Not because some shadowy group of lesbian keyboard warriors had anything to do about it lol. As for Chris, if they wanted him off he'd not be coming back to guest appearances. Actors often want to free up their time for new projects or directions and sometimes to just not get typecast.

Happens in shows quite often. Some of those shows have gone on for over 10 seasons. Every time someone leaves a show like Criminal Minds or Law and order, for two examples, the studio doesn't give a big explanation about why. Unless your star (Hoch) is kicking people, or co-actors are groping people, or Star is forgetting she is not at a KKK rally but actually on Twitter. Then they make statements more often.
