For those not in the know, ‘Sanvers’ is a term to for Alex Danvers and Maggie Sawyers relationship on Supergirl. Floriana Lima(Maggie Sawyer), who was a regular on Season two will be stepping down as a recurring character in the third season which premieres in October. This won’t affect her relationship with main character Alex Danvers (Chyler Leigh) according to Producer Greg Berlanti, while speaking with TVLine at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Wednesday:
“Any character people love is not there as much as people want them there. But from my perspective, we will use her as much as we can.”
Also talking on why she is no longer a series regular, he said:
“She’s wonderful on the show, and she’s got some real ardent fans, as she should…. We wanted more of her, but she’s got other things in the hopper, other things she wants to consider. We’d love to have her back as much as possible” We last saw Alex and Maggie at the DEO last season when Alex proposed to her. Whether she accepted or turned down the proposal is still unknown.
Supergirl returns Monday, Oct. 9
