On the other hand, Screen Rant reports that since Supergirl moved from CBS to The CW, the set location also moved from Los Angeles to Vancouver. The latter report noted that since the actress did not want to be far from her family, she became selective of her projects. She only takes projects shot in Los Angeles.
The outlet reports that while the series featured and introduced new main and supporting characters throughout the season, Supergirl fans miss Cat’s presence in the series. Kara (Melissa Benoist) felt the void especially she needs someone to turn to. Supergirl Season 2 spoilers hint that with all the problems Kara is facing, the superhero probably needs her for some sound advice from her mentor, Cat Grant.
