Izabela Vidovic is replacing Malina Weissman as Supergirl's young Kara Danvers, reports Entertainment Weekly. Vidovic will debut as Melissa Benoist's younger self in the sixth episode of the upcoming third season, titled "Midvale."
In Midvale, Kara and her sister Alex will revisit a murder mystery from their high school years.
“You’ll get to see, through the way they interact, how their relationship started when Kara first came to Earth, how it grew, how it became so close and why they’re so close nowadays,” said Benoist.
Vidovic recently co-started in the TV series The Fosters, and had roles in Bones, About a Boy, and Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior.
The Hollywood trade aludes to Weissman's current role on Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events as the reason for the recasting.
Supergirl's third season is scheduled to begin October 9.
