It is unknown if Superman & Lois will return for Season 4 even though the Arrowverse spin-off is currently airing its third season on The CW.
Everyone was taken aback when Superman & Lois Season 2 revealed that the series is set on another Earth and that it is not a part of the regular Arrowverse. This implied that the storylines of Tyler Hoechlin’s Man of Steel will continue because it will not be included in the grand finale of the Arrowverse in The Flash.
The CW’s sale to Nexstar Media Group, however, raised worries that scripted series like Superman & Lois may be canceled, especially when the network’s new president, Brad Schwartz, provided a hesitant answer regarding the possibility of further DC programming being released.
Will Superman & Lois get renewed by The CW for Season 4?
According to a recent report from Deadline, after handing Jared Padalecki’s Walker a 13-episode Season 4 order for the 2023–2024 broadcast season, The CW is “not expected” to renew the majority of its existing scripted dramas.
The cost of producing The CW’s scripted dramas exceeds what the network is prepared to spend going forward. This would imply that if the network is unwilling to invest, shows like Superman & Lois Season 4 and All American: Homecoming Season 3 can wind up being canceled.
However, Deadline said that the DC program may be retained “if” the network receives more scripted renewals, although the publication emphasized that this is a “big if.”
The CW’s decision to renew Walker is its first significant action under the new administration.
Additionally, according to Deadline, “the bulk of the CW’s existing scripted series” would probably be canceled as the network prepares to switch to a new business strategy that will focus on producing written content at a reduced cost in order to become profitable.
It’s unclear if Superman and Lois will be retained.
Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Superman, said “who knows” when questioned about the likelihood of seeing Superman & Lois Season 4 during an appearance at this year’s Starfury Conventions, citing the ongoing writer’s strike as an explanation.
The Arrowverse star added that he is “optimistic” about making a comeback for Season 4, though.
Why Superman & Lois Deserves a Season 4
After a great and reliable third season, this most recent update on Superman & Lois is depressing.
It would be disappointing if The CW decided to cancel its final DC series given how well the program handled the Lois Lane cancer plotline and Tyler Hoechlin’s outstanding performance as the Man of Steel.
Additionally, keeping Superman and Lois around for what may be their final season on The CW is a smart choice given that the appeal of the DC superhero may still draw both casual and ardent fans.
Since Superman: Legacy would debut in 2025 (by which time Superman & Lois would have probably finished its fourth season), this decision would also not be constrained by James Gunn’s administration under the DC Studios umbrella.
Hopefully, the network will take Superman & Lois back for one final fitting farewell to its viewers.
A new episode of Superman & Lois Season 3 premieres every Tuesday on The CW.
