The CW has had a lot of success with Superman and Lois over the past few years. It was a spinoff from the network’s Arrowverse, and the DC TV show has been a huge hit since its premiere in 2021. It’s about Clark Kent and Lois Lane, played by Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch. In Smallville, they have to be heroes, and parents, save the world, and take care of their families all at the same time.
Superman and Lois Season 4
This year’s third season of the show came to an end, and plans are already underway for a fourth season. The CW picked it up for a fourth season in the summer, after months of not knowing what would happen with it. Nexstar, the new owners of the network, wanted cheaper shows, and Superman and Lois’ high price tag put them in danger. Warner Bros. promised that it would continue it on the air, which helped, and the show was a hit.
But Superman and Lois will be different, and we’ll have to wait a little while longer. That being said, here is everything we know so far about the next season.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Renewal Status
There will be a fourth season of Superman and Lois in June 2023. The season will only have 10 shows, though, which is less than the past seasons. However, this is not completely surprising, as season 9 of The Flash had only 13 episodes instead of the normal 23. But unlike season 9 of The Flash, which was extended with the idea that it was going to be the last season of the long-running show, the creators of Superman and Lois have not confirmed that season 4 will be the last season of the show.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Release Date
Superman and Lois season 4 is scheduled to premiere on The CW in 2024, but there isn’t a set date for when it will be available. Before officially reviving the show for a fourth season, The CW announced its fall 2023 plan. This meant that it would run in the spring since it has always started in the spring or summer.
Still, it might be a lot later than planned because of the WGA and SAG strikes in Hollywood. The series was always supposed to start in 2024, but the plots aren’t done yet and filming hasn’t started. Now that the WGA strike is over, the writing room will probably get back to work soon. However, staff writer Adam Mallinger has said that he won’t be coming back because of budget cuts.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Cast
The cast of the show will be changed in a big way for season 4. One of the main requirements for The CW to continue the show was that the main group had to be cut down a lot. Seven main cast members, such as Emmanuelle Chriqui (Lana Lang) and Dylan Walsh (Sam Lane), are leaving the show.
Many of these names will probably show up again and again in regular or guest parts, which is good news. Michael Cudlitz, who plays Lex Luthor, will now be a regular on the show, making the main group list complete:
- Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman
- Elizabeth “Bitsie” Tulloch as Lois Lane
- Alex Garfin as Jordan Kent
- Michael Bishop as Jonathan Kent
- Michael Cudlitz as Lex Luthor
Dylan Walsh might not be coming back to Superman & Lois season 4 in any way, which is sad. Fans are left to wonder what will happen without his character.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Plot
The third season of “Superman & Lois” finished on a lot of cliffhangers, so Season 4 will have to answer those questions. As the season ends, the fight between Superman and Doomsday is still going on.
Once Superman learns that Doomsday can’t be killed, he tricks it into going into space. There, we can see them facing each other on the moon. One story was left open after the end of season 3, but this isn’t the only one.
It was told to us that Chrissy and Kyle are going to have a baby. The second one’s life has recently gone off the rocks, which could make being a dad even harder for him. Now that Jordan is no longer with Sarah, his love life doesn’t seem to be going so well. They gave each other one last handshake to say goodbye.
On the contrary, Sam’s new girlfriend turned out to be Lex Luther’s helper. In season 4, he’s likely to cause us some trouble. Sam also told John Henry that he could work for the Department of Defense as a tech developer. He will have to move to Metropolis because of this. Matthew and Nathalie will both go to the same school.
Not only did everyone else in the season 3 ending have a love story going on, but Nat’s dad did too. When he shares with Lana about his move, the two finally become closer. But it’s not likely that Season 4 will finish all the stories that leave us on the edge of our seats. There aren’t as many stars and actresses in the new shows as there were in the old ones. What is going to occur next with Kyle, Sarah, Sam, Lana, John Henry, and Nathalie? We won’t know.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Creators
We don’t yet know how the changes to the show will affect the writing, production, and directing of Season 4. We nevertheless know some things. At this point, the CW has not named a director for Season 4. The first three seasons of the show were run by Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher. They’ll definitely keep their job, but we can’t say for sure because “Superman & Lois” has been through a lot of changes lately.
Along with Fletcher, Helbing, and Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns will also be executive producers. No one has said who, if anyone, will be departing the writing team. We do know, though, that the writers’ room has shrunk from eight to five people. Also, we understand that writer Adam Mallinger will not be back on the show. It is very sad that Mallinger is leaving the show because he has been involved in some way since Season 1.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Episodes
There will be 10 shows in Season 4 of Superman and Lois. For season 4, that means there will be three fewer episodes than in season 3 and five fewer episodes than in seasons 1 and 2.
Superman and Lois Season 4 Trailer
As of now, there is no video for Superman & Lois season 4. We’ll let you know as soon as one comes out.
