Supergirl has cast three-time Emmy Award-winner Laurie Metcalf as Winn Schott’s mother. In the past, Winn’s family members have been troublesome, to put it lightly – as evidenced by Toyman, his villainous father. But with a new year comes new opportunities for parental reconnection.

TVLine reports that Metcalf’s character will appear in the current season’s 15th episode, set to air in 2018. In early November, it was reported that the actress would guest-star in an episode of Supergirl, but the role hadn’t been confirmed until now. Metcalf’s interest in appearing on the show has been fueled, in part, by her youngest child’s adoration of Melissa Benoist, the titular Supergirl.
