at .

Jonathan Bennett will stop by National City later this year. 

The Mean Girls star confirmed via Instagram that he will appear on Supergirl in a guest-starring capacity, and his character finds himself on the outs with the show's titular hero. 

He is described as a “wide-eyed government attaché who is grateful when Supergirl saves his life. However, when he shows his true colors by attending an anti-alien rally, Supergirl aims to prove to Quentin that not all aliens are bad,” according to The CW. 


"Have I mentioned I love my job? @supergirlcw #supergirl #supergirlcw," he shared alongside the above image of him on the Vancouver set. 

The episode in question will air in the coming months during Supergirl Season 4, which is airing on Sundays at 8/7c.

Bennett has appeared in a string of hit TV shows throughout the years. With roles on Smallville, Veronica Mars, and even All My Children, he has kept busy over the years. 

More recently, he appeared on Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video alongside some of his fellow Mean Girls costars.

Supergirl is currently on its holiday hiatus on The CW, and new episodes are slated to begin Sunday, January 19. 

The superhero drama helped The CW relaunch programming on Sundays in the fall, and despite taking a hit in the ratings, it is holding up fairly well. 

Supergirl Season 4 is currently averaging 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating in live plus same day ratings
