“Supergirl” fans are now more or less convinced that Alex and Maggie will either be engaged or married by the start of season 3. This comes after stars Chyler Leigh and Floriana Lima were seen wearing equal rings while shooting the first episode of the third installment of The CW superhero series.
Photos from the set showing Leigh and Lima wearing similar rings on their left fingers were newly shared on social media. This could point to the pair being engaged or married especially after what happened last season.
At the end of the season 2 finale, Alex proposed to Maggie though whether she agreed or not was unclear, leading fans to think over the fact during the series’ break.
With this new information, it appears that fans got their response and the couple’s relationship could be bigger than ever. But while the actors are reaching new heights in terms of development, the actors themselves appear to have other ideas. Lima has decided to have a reduced role in the tv show and step down as a series regular next season.
Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg explained the reason behind Lima’s choice in a statement. According to Kreisberg, the star is looking to seek other possibilities although producers are happy that she will return for a number of episodes for “Supergirl” season 3. It is now uncertain how Lima’s status as a recurring cast will affect Alex and Maggie’s storyline.
Nevertheless, Lima said she is proud that the on-screen love has been important to viewers. The ones who are struggling with their sexuality. Taking to Twitter, the star said that the best part about her role as Maggie is that she is able to “share an inspiring love story” and represent the LGBTQ+ community in the tv show.
While she is scanning other opportunities on the horizon, Lima said she is still excited to continue being part of the show.
“Supergirl” season 3 is set to premiere on Monday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW.
