Brent Spiner exits Supergirl season 4, role recast with Bruce Boxleitner

Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Enterprise) has exited his new role as vice president of the United States in season four of Supergirl due to scheduling issues, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The news comes only three weeks after it was first announced that Spiner had joined The CW series.

Vice President Baker will now be played by Bruce Boxleitner (Tron, Babylon 5, NCIS). The character is described as an unlikely leader who will nonetheless step up in a big way when his country needs him. Boxleitner follows recent new additions to the series that include Rhona Mitra as the villainous Mercy Graves, Robert Baker as Mercy’s brother Otis, Sam Witwer as Agent Liberty, and Nicole Maines as television’s first transgender superhero Dreamer.

Season 3 saw Supergirl stop Reign and the other Worldkillers’ threat to humanity and our planet, and in the process, Kara was shocked to find her mother Alura alive and living in a salvaged Argo City that survived the destruction of Krypton. Reconnecting with her past caused Kara to realize that her true home is now here on Earth, where big changes are taking place for her and all of her friends in National City – and also, it appears, for a doppelganger in Russia! Season four promises to be full of surprises, action, adventure and lots of big revelations for Supergirl, Alex, James, J’onn, Lena and Brainy.

Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Jeremy Jordan as Winslow ‘Winn’ Schott, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor, Jess Rath as Brainiac 5, and David Harewood as Hank Henshaw/J’onn J’onnz. New to the cast for the fourth season is Sam Witwer as hero Agent Liberty.

Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Supergirl season four will premiere on The CW on its new night, Sunday, October 14, at 8:00 p.m.
