The CW is once again expanding on its ever-growing Arrowverse. Greg Berlanti, who produces all six Arrowverse shows as well as All American, Riverdale, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, is adding two more shows to his list. First, announced last month The CW is developing another spin-off of Arrow. It will feature Oliver’s daughter Mia, played by Katherine McNamara, and Dinah Drake (Julianna Harkavy) and Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), known as “The Canaries.” The potential series, set in the future, will get a backdoor pilot during Arrow‘s eighth and final season, which is currently airing.

And now, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the network is developing another series set in the Arrowverse. The series, called Superman & Lois Lane, is set to star Supergirl‘s Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch returning as the titular characters and iconic DC Comics power couple. Hoechlin made his debut as the Man of Steel in season two of Supergirl, while Tulloch made her debut as Lois Lane last year during the “Elseworlds” crossover. Both are set to return for the highly anticipated “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover this coming winter.

Former The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing will be executive producing and writing the show, which would “follow the super-duo as they deal with all of the stress, pressures, and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.” In case not everyone is up-to-date, the two characters announced a pregnancy at the end of the “Elseworlds” crossover. The upcoming “Crisis” crossover will debut the couple’s child.

Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns will join Berlanti and Helbing in executive producing Superman & Lois Lane, which is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The CW is planning the show for next season.
