The CW is once again expanding 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, 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 2 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.
So excited and grateful and happy to announce this 🎉 @tylerhoechlin has rapidly become one of my fave people on the planet and I’m lucky he’s my partner on this journey. I’m full of gratitude and love. 💓#SupermanAndLois https://t.co/yZs9w0Xy8A pic.twitter.com/TdWVajkiuf

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, produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The CW is planning the show for next season.
