Supergirl will be welcoming a fan-favorite character back in season five.

Jeremy Jordan will reprise his role as Winn Schott in a three-episode guest stint in season five, according to Entertainment Weekly.  This return will take place in the back-half of season five following the “Crisis On Infinite Earths” crossover. We’re guessing that some shockwaves from that will be felt in the future, which is where Winn has been.

Schott, in the series, is the son of infamous mass murderer Winn Schott Senior also known as Toyman (and classic comic Superman villain). He’s a certifiable tech genius who worked for Catco before being recruited to the DEO in season two. At the end of season three, Winn left the present with Mon-El (Chris Wood) to handle a Brainiac crisis with the Legion of Superheroes in the future. (This also served as Chris Wood’s exit from the series.) Brainy (Jesse Rath) took Winn’s place at the DEO as he would have been targeted in the future.

Jordan, originally, was supposed to return in season four. This was after Jordan’s Broadway play, American Son, concluded its run. Due to the nature of the story, however, co-showrunner Robert Rovner said that it just wasn’t possible.

Jordan has been a busy bee in the interim. He welcomed his daughter, Clara, in April 2019. He also starred in Waitress as Dr. Jim Pomatter from April to June. Plus, American Son is heading to Netflix.

Even so, we’re so excited to have Winn back in season five. We’re hoping that the timing coincides with Supergirl‘s 100th episode? That should premiere after “Crisis” due to the 20-episode first season they show had. (If our math is right.)

Supergirl returns Sunday, October 6th at 9/8c on the CW.
