We met Winn’s (Jeremy Jordan) villainous father back in 2016, and now it’s time to meet his mother.
EW has confirmed that Laurie Metcalf (The Big Bang Theory, Lady Bird) will guest-star on Supergirl as the tech-savvy super friend’s estranged mom. She will appear in the 15th episode of The CW drama’s third season, which will air in 2018. According to a recent Vanity Fair profile, Metcalf accepted the role so that her youngest daughter could meet her idol: Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist.
In season 1’s “Childish Things,” which aired on CBS, Winn had a very unpleasant reunion with his father Winslow Schott Sr., a.k.a. Toyman, who escapes from prison in order to murder to his old boss. Obviously, Supergirl thwarted his plan and Winslow was sent back to prison at the end of the hour.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
