It’s no secret that we’re ~huge~ fans of The CW’s Supergirl. Now, this Supergirl casting news has us so excited for fall TV, as we learned from Variety. The dl? Laura Benanti, aka Alura, will be leaving the show. And who’s taking her place?! None other than Smallville’s Erica Durance, who played Lois Lane for six years. We ~can’t wait~ to see her as the mother of Supergirl, played by Melissa Benoist, of course, and how Durance as Alura will stir things up on the show.

ICYMI, last season, Teri Hatcher was another former Lois Lane who was on Supergirl. So we have ~no doubt~ that Durance will be a more-than-welcome edition to the show, too.

Wonder Woman, aka Lynda Carter, starred in Season 2 of Supergirl, so the show definitely likes to populate its cast with women we love.

Season 3 of Supergirl will premiere on Monday, October 9th on The CW at 8 p.m. ET. As we said before, we’re ~super~ excited and can’t wait. Meanwhile, we’re going to go brainstorm potential plotlines for Alura and hope they come to fruition. Brb!
