After weeks of waiting for renewal or cancelation news for the final CW projects, it has been announced that Superman & Lois will take flight for a shortened fourth season, according to TVLine.
Back in January, DC Studios heads James Gunn and Peter Safran touched on the future of the series amidst the heavy cancelations at the network at the time. “It’s a show everybody likes, so it’s gonna keep going for a little bit,” Gunn said.
Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman/Clark Kent was first introduced on Supergirl, where he aided his cousin on a few missions. Eventually, he became a fan-favorite character and got a spin-off series with Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, who briefly appeared on Supergirl alongside Hoechlin and in the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. The series follows the Kent family (including their two sons, Jonathan and Jordan) as they reacclimatize themselves to Smallville from the big city. However, the journey is not without its problems, as many of the show’s villains aim to eliminate what they deem a threat in Superman for good.
Alongside Hoechlin and Tulloch, the series also stars Alex Garfin as Jordan Kent, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang-Cushing, Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cushing, Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing, Wolé Parks as John Henry Irons, Tayler Buck as Natalie Irons, and Sofia Hasmik as Chrissy Beppo, and Michael Bishop as Jonathan Kent. Superman & Lois has introduced characters like Steel, Bruno Mannheim, Onomatopeia, Tal-Rho, Bizarro, Lara Lor-Van, Lex Luthor, and more. The series explores storylines prevalent in the comics while also introducing more heartfelt, human stories.
Season 3 of Superman & Lois is currently airing on The CW. New episodes release Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on The CW.
