“The plan for Chris was always to have him on the show for two years,” Rovner told TVLine. “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.”
Executive Producer Congratulates The Two
Producer on Supergirl Jessica Queller hopes that fans have loved the story that they’ve told about the two heroes and feel both have grown because of it.
“They both have destinies in different times as heroes,” Queller said. “What they did was the sort-of Casablanca decision of putting what’s most important to them — which is saving the world — first. 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.”
Benoist was earlier married to Glee co-star Blake Jenner. After getting married in 2013, Benoist filed a divorce in 2016 citing differences.
Congratulations to the Melissa Benoist for getting engaged!
