But Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key) aren’t looking for a casual evening of polite small talk with new friends. Eventually, the two couples find themselves in a marital free-fall matched in velocity and peril only by the smoldering space rocks tearing through the sky.”

Laura Benanti to Leave 'Supergirl,' Erica Durance Replacing Her

Laura Benanti is leaving Supergirl after two seasons with the show.

The Tony-winning actress will be replaced by Erica Durance, best known for playing Lois Lane on Smallville. She will play Alura, the mother of Melissa Benoist‘s Supergirl.

“Unfortunately Laura, who Greg [Berlanti] and I have worked with for years going back to Eli Stone, was unable to continue in the role due to work commitments in New York,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement (via THR).

“But we are so blessed that Erica has come aboard to offer her own interpretation of Kara’s mother. We had tremendous success with a former Lois Lane last season with Teri Hatcher. We know Erica will continue the proud tradition of legacy actors joining our shows and creating new and exciting takes on classic DC characters,” he added.
