Check this out from http://www.vancouverfilm.net/2008/08/supergirl-winding-up-smallville-run.html !! It is a brief report on the site ... what you read below is the entire article. But it shows good things can come in short reports!
According to reports from Toronto's "Fan Expo", actress Laura Vandervoort, who played 'Kara', aka "Supergirl", in Season 7 of the Vancouver-lensed, CW TV series "Smallville", will be featured in a Season 8 episode. "In October, I'm shooting," Vandervoort said during a panel alongside actor Michael "Lex Luthor" Rosenbaum. "They've asked me to tie up my storyline...."
Sounds like Kara will get out of the Phantom Zone!! All I can say is 'thank goodness'. How horrible would it have been if she stayed there? How is that honoring all the heroic things she did during the season.
Anyways, everybody give themselves a pat on the back! Maybe the powers that be over at Smallville felt our negative mental vibes. Or maybe they heard our collective on-line pleas. We were certainly loud enough!
