Erica Durance is joining the highly anticipated Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.
As mentioned with Welling’s casting announcement last week, the crossover will reveal what happened to Clark and Lois almost ten years after the conclusion of Smallville.
Durance happily shared her involvement in the crossover on social media. Captioning one of her Instagram posts with “It’s a party,” the actress seemed to suggest that the crossover is going to be the biggest TV event in the upcoming season.
Though the crossover will be the first on-screen reunion for Welling and Durance since Smallville ended its 10-season run in 2011, the latter is not a newbie to the Arrowverse. Durance recurred in Season 3 of Supergirl as Kara’s birth mother Alura Zor-El. Durance took over the role from Laura Benanti, who left the series after its sophomore run.
In addition to Smallville and Supergirl, Durance also starred as the lead character in the Canadian supernatural medical drama Saving Hope, which ran for five seasons. Her other TV acting credits include Harry’s Law, Charlie’s Angels, Andromeda, Stargate SG-1, and many others.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will kick off on Sunday, December 8th with an episode of Supergirl. It will then continue on Monday with an episode of Batwoman and the day after with an episode of The Flash. After a month-long holiday break, it will conclude on January 14th, 2020 with back-to-back episodes of Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.
