Chrissy Beppo’s baby daddy is officially back in action. Erik Valdez on Tuesday posted a selfie from his trailer on the set of Superman & Lois, confirming his return in the CW drama’s upcoming fourth and final season.
One of the last remaining original scripted shows on the network, Superman & Lois‘ Season 4 renewal came with a few major caveats. Not only was its traditional episode order reduced, but only five actors would be returning as series regulars, leaving fans to wonder how much of the show’s ensemble cast — including Valdez as Kyle Cushing — would still have a presence on the show.

With this “first trailer selfie” now posted, we can officially confirm that Kyle will be back for at least one episode of Superman & Lois’ farewell season. What’s more, Valdez is using his return as an opportunity to honor his late father.
“I had a chat with our wonderful costumes [department], and they agreed to let me honor my dad by wearing his signature black boots,” Valdez writes in his caption. “Kyle’s gonna have a bit more pep in his step and maybe a few more dance moves this season.”

The list of former series regulars whose future with Superman & Lois remains unknown includes Dylan Walsh as General Sam Lane, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Mayor Lana Lang, Inde Navarrette as Lana and Kyle’s daughter Sarah, Wolé Parks as John Henry Irons (aka Steel), Tayler Buck as John Henry’s daughter Natalie and Sofia Hasmik as Smallville Gazette editor-in-chief Chrissy Beppo.
The only five actors returning as series regulars are Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, Bitsie Tulloch as Lois Lane, Alex Garfin as Jordan Kent, Michael Bishop as Jonathan Kent and Michael Cudlitz as Lex Luthor.
Superman & Lois returns for its final season this spring. An exact premiere date has not been announced.
