"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 NY", says executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.

'We are so blessed that Erica has come aboard to offer her own interpretation of Kara's mother, ' Kreisberg said. Laura Benanti played Alura in the first two seasons but has to depart due to other commitments. Now, Kara balances her work as a reporter for CatCo Worldwide Media with her work for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City and the Earth safe from sinister threats.

New Analyst Ratings On E*TRADE Financial Corporation (NASDAQ:ETFC)
Equities analysts anticipate that E*TRADE Financial Corporation will post $1.96 earnings per share for the current year. Shares of ZTS have uptrended 18.8% in the past three months, while the industry overall has moved 14.46% in that time.

On Twitter on Friday, Benanti explained why she was stepping away from the show. And the commute from NYC to Vancouver is not a very easy one. It was quite ironic for Vandervoort to play the role of a villain in "Supergirl" considering that she actually played the role of the titular character in "Smallville".

Ever since the pilot episode of Supergirl, Kara Zor-El's parents have played an instrumental part in her world. But after Astra was killed by Alex midway through season 1, Benati's role on Supergirl became greatly reduced.

How do you feel about Erica Durance joining the cast of Supergirl?

In season 2, Alura was seen less and less, which might have prompted the showrunners to recast, giving the role to someone else who can dedicate more time to filming the series. Per Deadline, Erica Durance is headed to the CW show. It's for that reason that Durance, who will be known for Superman fans for playing Lois Lane on Smallville, will take over the role.
