It’s the end of an era. The CW has announced that Superman & Lois season 4 will be the show’s last. Not only is the series coming to an end, but this is the last remaining DC Comics series on the network. As a result, the ArrowVerse era is officially over. This was the last man standing after Gotham Knights was canceled following its one and only season.
It had previously been confirmed that Superman & Lois was going to get a fourth season. It hadn’t been revealed until now, however, that it would mark the show’s conclusion. The final season will consist of ten episodes. As for the reason? Nexstar recently purchased the network from CBS and Warner Bros. The company has been making sweeping changes and is scaling back on scripted shows. These DC shows no longer fit the network’s business model. Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment at The CW, had this to say about it.
“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. 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.”
Executive producers and co-showrunners Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher had this to say, teasing what’s to come.
“While we’re sad to say goodbye to Superman & Lois at the end of season four, 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.”
The cast is led by Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane. The ensemble also includes Garfin as Jordan Kent, Michael Bishop as Jonathan Kent, Alexander Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing, Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cushing, Wolé Parks as Henry Irons, Tayler Buck as Natalie Irons Sofia Hasmik as Chrissy Beppo, Chad L. Coleman as Bruno Mannheim, with Dylan Walsh as General Samuel Lane and Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang Cushing.
Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Greg Berlanti serve as executive producers alongside Helbing and Fletcher.
Superman & Lois season 4 airs sometime in 2024 on The CW.
