The CW is grounding Superman & Lois after its upcoming fourth season, TVLine has learned. The series’ 10-episode swan song is expected to air sometime in 2024.
Season 3 concluded in June with Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) facing off against iconic DC villain Doomsday, who is now seemingly immortal after getting an assist from Lex Luthor (Michael Cudlitz). Both Hoechlin and Cudlitz are returning as series regulars in Season 4, along with Bitsie Tulloch as Lois, Alex Garfin as Jordan and Michael Bishop as Jonathan.

“Over the last three seasons, Superman & Lois redefined both the superhero genre and family drama as Tyler, Elizabeth and the entire cast effortlessly portrayed these classic characters with new layers of depth and complexity that had never before been explored in the Superman universe,” CW president Brad Schwartz says in a statement. “We are grateful for the years of hard work and graceful storytelling from the show’s writers, producers, actors and crew, as well as our terrific partners at Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions. As Superman embarks on his final flight, the team is leaving us with an absolutely epic 10-episode must-watch-every-minute farewell to one of the most legendary CW families ever.”
Adds executive producers and co-showrunners Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher: “While we’re sad to say goodbye to Superman & Lois at the end of Season 4, we’re grateful for the time we’ve had with our amazing cast, crew, vfx teams, editors, musical geniuses, and writers. Since the day this show was first discussed, it was about family. And that’s what was created — on and off screen. We’d like to thank our partners at Berlanti Productions, DC, WB and The CW for their endless support and enthusiasm during this journey…and give a very special thank you to all the fans for tuning in. We’re thrilled about what we have in store in our final season, and can’t wait for everyone to watch as Superman, Lois and all our heroes face off against the biggest threat in the show’s history — Lex Luthor.”
When Superman & Lois was renewed for a fourth season earlier this year, it was hit by significant budget cuts, impacting both the size of its cast and its writing staff. A number of former series regulars — Wolé Parks as John Henry, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana, Inde Navarrette as Sarah, Tayler Buck as Natalie, Erik Valdez as Kyle, Sofia Hasmik as Chrissy and Dylan Walsh as Sam — will not be returning full-time, but the Powers That Be are hopeful we’ll see them again in some capacity.
Superman & Lois is executive-produced by Greg Berlanti, Todd Helbing, Sarah Schechter, Brent Fletcher and Geoff Johns.
The series also represents the final piece of the Berlanti-produced DC fare that once dominated the network. Other shows under that umbrella included Arrow, Batwoman, Black Lightning, The Flash, Gotham Knights, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.
