Superman And Lois is coming back for its third season soon, but the odds of it going beyond that point are painfully low. Those of you who figured we would never get Lex Luthor at this rate will be happy to be proven wrong: they just confirmed it today. Unfortunately…it isn’t Jon Cryer.

Apparently on the same night that Gotham Knights makes its “sure to be a hit” debut, Superman And Lois will return for its (final?) new season. It makes sense to pair them together, synergy-wise, but we hope Gotham Knights doesn’t get the 8PM slot.
The CW has finally set a return date for what will very probably be the last season of Superman And Lois. It’s a pity, really. It’s a classy show and Bitsie Tulloch has become one of our favorite Lois Lanes ever filmed. But the circumstances can’t be helped — the network is dying.
When Superman And Lois returns in 2023 to what’s left of The CW, you might notice one character looks and sounds a bit different. Jordan Elsass, who played Jonathan Kent in the first two seasons of the series, is departing voluntarily. The series has picked a replacement: Australian actor Michael Bishop.
John Diggle made a guest appearance on Superman And Lois last night. He was first introduced on the TV series Arrow, a show that spawned a whole low-budget TV universe of superheroes. That universe seems to be dying now, but when it was in its prime, it was glorious. At least bits and pieces of it are still alive, for now…The Flash is hanging in there (barely), and Superman And Lois is going strong….oh, wait.
For the last few years, The CW has given blanket renewals to everything the moment the new year turns over. This time, however, circumstances are a bit different. With the fate of the entire network in question, it was unknown if ANY of its programs would see another season — until today, when seven renewals were announced. Here is the list you can nervously scroll down to reveal the fate of your favorites…
Superman & Lois returns to The CW for its second season in about a month, and the network has released a one-minute trailer for the season. It’s our first real look at what’s up ahead. It’s also unfortunately squashed since CW chose to release the trailer exclusively on Twitter and in the “portrait” aspect ratio. Maybe a better version will come along later. For now, this is what we get:
In a sudden, but very on-brand move for The CW, its newest super-series Superman And Lois has been given a second season and a place on the 2021-22 schedule. Given the network’s track record, the renewal was never really in question, but the show’s performance in ratings likely motivated the early decision. Last Tuesday, with the 90-minute premiere and the behind-the-scenes doc that followed it, The CW achieved its highest ratings it had seen in two years. (We figure without those numbers, it might have taken another full week for the show to be renewed.)
Good ol’ CW. Their shows may not be the best on television, but among our endless choices for entertainment these days, they’re the only place in the whole world where you can start a show and feel confident that it won’t be abruptly cancelled with no warning. Every year The CW is the first to announce its renewals, and every year they renew EVERYTHING, with the exception of shows that are leaving on their own terms. If only they could all be like this (Netflix, I’m glaring at you).
