The series was intended to be part of the Arrowverse's Earth-Prime in its first season, developed as a spin-off of Supergirl, with Hoechlin and Tulloch respectively reprising their roles from Supergirl and The Flash (and the conclusion of the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover event serving as a backdoor pilot), but as the series went on, following the cancellation of planned crossovers with Supergirl and Batwoman due to the COVID-19 pandemic, showrunner Todd Helbing and Warner Bros. decided to keep the show separate, with the series instead set in its own separate continuity taking place on a different Earth to the Arrowverse's Earth-Prime, which was confirmed in the second season finale.

Superman & Lois was announced as a pilot in October 2019 and was ordered to series in January 2020. The series premiered on The CW on February 23, 2021. In 2023, the series was renewed for a fourth and final season.

Premise

edit

In the first season, Clark Kent / Superman and Lois Lane return to Smallville with their sons Jonathan and Jordan, where they are reacquainted with Lana Lang, her husband Kyle Cushing, and their daughter Sarah. Their idyllic lives are upended when The Stranger enters as well as by the secret experiments of Morgan Edge.[1]

During the second season, Superman's painful visions lead him to an encounter with Bizarro while also butting heads with Lt. General Mitch Anderson. In addition, Lois deals with the Inverse Method cult led by Ally Allston who swayed Lucy Lane to her side and has made an enemy of Bizarro for her supposed conquering of his world.

The third season has Superman contending with the plots of Intergang as Lois Lane suffers from Stage 3 inflammatory breast cancer. Following the death of Peia Mannheim and the surrender of Bruno Mannheim, Lex Luthor is released from prison when the Mannheim's frame-up of him killing Boss Moxie was exposed. He then proceeds to plan his revenge on Superman and Lois Lane that involves a resurrected Bizarro.

Cast and characters

edit
  • Tyler Hoechlin as Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman: a superhero from Krypton and husband of Lois who defends Earth.[2] Dylan Kingwell portrays a teenage Clark in season one, Josh Zaharia portrays a teenage Clark in season two, Lennix James portrays a four-year-old Clark, Thomas Hoeving portrays Clark in his childhood, and Parker Cousineau portrays Clark in grade school.
  • Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane: a world-renowned journalist and wife of Clark.[2]
  • Jordan Elsass (seasons 1–2) and Michael Bishop (seasons 3–4) as Jonathan Kent: the modest, kind-hearted and athletic son of Clark and Lois who unlike Jordan did not inherit any Kryptonian superpowers. He is named after Clark's adoptive father, Jonathan Kent.[3] Elsass departed the series prior to the third season due to personal issues, and the role was recast to Bishop.[4][5] Brady Droulis portrays a seven-year-old Jonathan Kent.
  • Alex Garfin as Jordan Kent: the introspective son of Clark and Lois, who is an outcast with social anxiety.[3] Unlike Jonathan, Jordan has inherited their father's powers, though early in season 1 his abilities only appear in "small bursts" but he manifests more powers and in season 2 he has grown powerful enough to fight Tal-Rho for a brief time. He is named after Clark's biological father, Jor-El. Dawson Littman portrays a seven-year-old Jordan Kent.
  • Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing (né Cortez) (seasons 1–3;[6] guest season 4[7]): ex-husband of Lana Lang and Smallville's fire chief. Callous, abrasive, and struggling with alcoholism, Cushing carries a chip on his shoulder about living in a small town.[8]
  • Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cortez (seasons 1–3;[6] guest season 4[9]): Kyle and Lana's "wild child" daughter who befriends the Kent boys and serves as Jordan's love interest.[10] In the season 2 episode "Girl... You'll Be A Woman, Soon" she celebrates her quinceañera and changes her name to Cortez, which was her family's name before they changed it.[11]
  • Wolé Parks as John Henry Irons (seasons 1–3[6]): A soldier and talented engineer from an unidentified parallel Earth who is hellbent on proving to the world that it no longer needs Superman. He eventually accepts Superman as the savior of Earth and teams up with him to protect people from Morgan Edge.[12]
  • Adam Rayner as Tal-Rho / Morgan Edge / Eradicator (season 1; recurring season 2): "an intelligent, eloquent, and impassioned self-made mogul whose innate ability to motivate is the means to his success and others' demise."[13] He is later revealed to be Kal-El's half-brother known as Tal-Rho through Kal's mother Lara Lor-Van and Zeta-Rho with plans to restore the Kryptonian race.[14] Jack Rehbein and Ben Cockell portray a 10-year-old Tal-Rho and a 19-year-old Tal-Rho, respectively.
  • Dylan Walsh as Sam Lane (seasons 1–3[6]): father of Lois and grandfather of Jonathan and Jordan, a no-nonsense, workaholic army general who is determined to keep America and the world safe from all threats.[15]
  • Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang (seasons 1–3[6] guest season 4[16]): an old friend of Clark Kent and the former loan officer at Smallville Bank. In season two, she becomes the new mayor of Smallville.[17] Milano Hryshchenko portrays a childhood Lana, Sara Rizk portrays a grade school Lana, and Emma Newton portrays a teenage Lana.
  • Tayler Buck as Natalie Lane Irons (seasons 2–3;[18][6] guest season 1): John Henry Irons's daughter from his Earth with an alternate version of Lois Lane.
  • Sofia Hasmik as Chrissy Beppo (seasons 2–3;[19][6] recurring season 1): a "go-getter" journalist at the Smallville Gazette who has a "chance encounter" that changes her life.[20]
  • Chad L. Coleman as Bruno Mannheim (season 3): the leader of Intergang, the widower of the late Peia Mannheim and the father of Matteo Mannheim.[21]

Production

edit

Development

edit

The series was announced in October 2019 with Todd Helbing, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns executive producing, and Helbing penning the script.[2] On January 14, 2020, The CW officially ordered Superman & Lois to series.[76] The first season consisted of 15 episodes.[77] The series Everwood and Friday Night Lights served as inspirations for the show, given they were also family dramas. Helbing explained many aspects of Superman & Lois were approached as if it were a feature film, such as the aspect ratio, cinematography, and production design, saying "We are competing with shows on cable and streamers...we wanted to be able to do that and offer audiences something of equal quality".[1] In March 2021, The CW renewed the series for a second season which premiered on January 11, 2022.[78] In March 2022, it renewed the series for a third season.[79]

In January 2023, DC Studios CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran said they expected the show to continue for "one to two more seasons".[80] Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment at The CW, stated in May 2023 that the business model of the show was no longer feasible for the network due to the show being expensive to produce, adding that it did not directly generate any profits and The CW did not have the rights to previous seasons.[81] In June 2023, The CW renewed the series for a fourth season consisting of ten episodes. Under the renewal agreement, the series will reduce the number of its regular cast members and writers, in addition to reducing action scenes and gearing more towards a family-focused drama, in an effort to reduce production costs.[25] Production was however delayed due to the 2023 Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA strikes.[82] On November 2, 2023, it was announced that the fourth season would be the series' last.[25] Schwartz stated in an interview that the decision to end the show was made by Warner Bros. Discovery to avoid competition with the upcoming DC Universe (DCU) film Superman (2025).[83]

Casting

edit

Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch were signed on to reprise their roles as Clark Kent and Lois Lane from Supergirl.[2] In February 2020, Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin were cast as Clark and Lois' sons Jonathan Kent and Jordan Kent, respectively.[3] In April, Dylan Walsh was cast as Samuel Lane. Walsh replaces Glenn Morshower, who previously recurred in the role on Supergirl.[15] Emmanuelle Chriqui was also cast as Lana Lang,[17] along with Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing.[8] The next month, Wolé Parks was cast as "The Stranger" while Inde Navarrette was cast as Sarah Cushing.[12][10] Additionally, Adam Rayner portrays Morgan Edge, who was previously portrayed by Adrian Pasdar in Supergirl.[13]

In October 2020, Sofia Hasmik and Stacey Farber were cast in the recurring roles of Chrissy Beppo and Leslie Larr, respectively.[20][84] In December 2020, David Ramsey was revealed to be reprising his Arrow role of John Diggle in addition to directing at least one episode in the series.[85] In June 2021, Hasmik was promoted to a series regular for the second season.[19] In August 2021, Tayler Buck, who guest starred in the first season, was promoted to a series regular for the second season.[18] In October 2021, Ian Bohen was cast in a recurring role as Lt. Mitch Anderson for the second season.[86] Jenna Dewan, who previously played Lucy Lane on Supergirl reprised her role in the second season.[87]

In August 2022, Elsass departed the series ahead of the third season for personal reasons.[4] The following month, his role was recast to Michael Bishop[5] and Chad L. Coleman was cast as Bruno Mannheim.[21] Lex Luthor appears in the show where he is now portrayed by Michael Cudlitz instead of a reprisal from Jon Cryer, who played his doppelgänger on Earth-Prime.[88]

Seven of the twelve cast members were cut as series regulars following the renewal of the show for the fourth and final season. These included Dylan Walsh, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Erik Valdez, Inde Navarrette, Wolé Parks, Tayler Buck and Sofia Hasmik. Michael Cudlitz, who was a guest star in the third season, was promoted to a series regular for the fourth season.[6] Navarrette confirmed in July 2023 that she would return as a guest star for at least three episodes.[9]

Filming

edit

Production on the pilot was expected to begin on March 23, 2020, in Vancouver, British Columbia, and conclude on May 14.[89] However, on March 13, 2020, plans to shoot a pilot were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, to either June or July of that year.[90][91] In late July 2020, Warner Bros. Television planned for the Vancouver-based production to restart in late August.[92] Filming of season 1 began on October 21, 2020, and concluded on July 2, 2021.[93][94][95] The series is filmed on location in Surrey, British Columbia.[96][97] The second season began filming on September 15, 2021, and concluded on May 5, 2022.[98][99] Filming of the third season began on September 6, 2022[100] in Vancouver, and concluded on March 14, 2023.[101] Filming for the fourth season began on January 11, 2024, and concluded on April 24, 2024.[102][103][104][105] The cast and crew held a wrap party on April 25, 2024 to celebrate the conclusion of four seasons of filming.[106]

Writing

edit

In November 2020, series writer Nadria Tucker announced she was fired from the show, claiming it was for "pushing back on racist and sexist storylines." She also claimed she worked on all 15 episodes of the first season, but was only paid for 13 of them.[107][108][109] In a statement, WBTV claimed that "Warner Bros. Television did not exercise its option to extend her [contract] for additional episodes" and that "WBTV was transparent and told her why it was not picking up her option."[110]

Connection to the Arrowverse

edit

Speaking of the lack of greater Arrowverse connections in the first season, showrunner Todd Helbing felt that there was "this weird set of circumstances where, because of production or timing or COVID, everything in the show that was related to the Arrowverse has gotten pulled out". He added that, as development progressed further away from the "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover, "it felt like we were opening a can of worms every time we had to explain the connection", though he was hopeful more connections or proper crossovers could occur in the second season.[111]

Though the multiverse, Oliver Queen and the Arrowverse's version of the League[a] were mentioned in the first season, the second season finale establishes that the series takes place adjacent to Earth-Prime, with different iterations of the characters compared to their Earth-Prime counterparts and a different continuity. Helbing later revealed that the show's setting was separate from Earth-Prime, a decision he and DC Entertainment made. He further added that the Superman, Lois Lane, Lucy Lane and John Diggle in the series are doppelgangers of the ones on Earth-Prime.[112]
