Chris Wood Will Not Be Returning as Mon-El in 'Supergirl' Season 4

Were you as shocked as we were about Mon-El’s exit from Supergirl during last night’s season finale?

Chris Wood will not be returning for the upcoming season, either, and the showrunners are opening up about just why it was time to say goodbye to him on the series.

“The plan for Chris was always to have him on the show for two years,” executive producer Robert Rovner explained. “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.”

EP Jessica Queller added that for now, Kara and Mon-El’s love story has come to an end as well.

“They both have destinies in different times as heroes,” she says. “What they did was the sort-of Casablanca decision of putting what’s most important to them — which is saving the world — first.”

She continued, “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.”

However, it might not be goodbye for forever.

“We love working with Chris, so we’d love to have Mon-El back someday if the story takes us there and if Chris is available,” they added.

Crossing fingers!
