‘Superman & Lois’ is set to end its run on The CW after season four. It’s the news we were expecting, but didn’t want to hear and it’s safe to say that I am devastated.
Whilst ‘Superman & Lois’ is technically the last standing Arrowverse show, with a new slate of DC Universe coming it sadly does make sense to start completely anew and it looks like Warner Bros. TV along with James Gunn & Peter Safran, Heads Of DC Studios is committed in their vision for the DC Universe currently being constructed.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Brad Schwartz, President Of Entertainment at The CW said “Over the last three seasons, Superman & Lois redefined both the superhero genre and family drama as Tyler, Elizabeth and the entire cast effortlessly portrayed these classic characters with new layers of depth and complexity that had never before been explored in the Superman universe.”
Executive Producers and Co-Showrunners Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher said “We’d like to thank our partners at Berlanti Productions, DC, WB and The CW for their endless support and enthusiasm during this journey … and give a very special thank you to all the fans for tuning in. We’re thrilled about what we have in store in our final season, and can’t wait for everyone to watch as Superman, Lois and all our heroes face off against the biggest threat in the show’s history — Lex Luthor.”
Whilst this announcement is awful news for the cast, fans of the show and any Superman fans, it does sound like we have a VERY exciting final series to look forward to. Season four, the final series of ‘Superman & Lois’ will consist of 10 episodes and is set to air sometime in 2024.
