Supergirl returns to the box!

TV Spunkrat Laura Vandervoort, currently playing television’s most do-able E.T (on the “V” reboot), is returning to her old stomping ground, Smallville.

Vandervoort, who played Kara/Supergirl on the CW series, will return for one episode, says Michael Ausiello. Kara hasn’t been seen in Smallville since season 7. With “Smallville” about to enter it’s (tenth and) final season, it makes sense that Clark’s buxom cousin returned – after all, her storyline was kind of left dangling.

KryptonSite says Vandervoort’s “Smallville” episode will simply be titled “Supergirl”. It airs pretty early in the season, in October.

John Schneider will also return to “Smallville” for it’s final season, reprising his role as the bereaved family patriarch Jonathan Kent.

Still no word if Michael Rosenbaum will reprise his role as Lex Luthor for the final season – guessing, since we haven’t heard anything thus far, it ain’t happening.
