The CW has announced some casting news for the new seasons of two of its DC shows in The Flash and Supergirl.
First up is the news that Hartley Sawyer (Ralph Dibney/Elongated Man) and Danielle Nicolet (Cecile Horton) have been upped to series regulars for the fifth season of The Flash.
Meanwhile, over in National City, Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott) has shifted from a series regular role to a recurring guest star on Supergirl season four, while Jesse Rath (Brainiac-5) has been promoted to a series regular.
“We love the character of Brainiac-5 and can’t imagine anyone but Jesse Rath in the role,” executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller tell TV Line. “He brings such fun, heart and brilliance to Brainy, and we’re so excited he’s joining the cast as a series regular for season 4. We have a lot of great Brainy stories to tell.”
Meanwhile, the duo also moved to reassure Winn fans that the character will still play a big role in season four:
“We love Jeremy, and even though he’s [not going to be around full-time], we’re not saying goodbye to Winn at all. We’re already breaking big stories for him right now for the fall, and I think the fans will be excited to see what he has coming up.”
