The CW has released a new poster for Superman & Lois. This poster, as it just so happens, also includes the return date for The CW series. Season 1 of the DC show had been going strong. However, due to the production schedule, the series was first to hit the pause button for several weeks. But it’s coming back on May 18. Have a look at the poster.

“Fly high. New episodes return May 18,” the caption reads. Additionally, the network noted that viewers can stream new episodes the following day on The CW’s website.
Here is the synopsis for Superman & Lois.
“In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. “
Critics and audiences have responded kindly to the show in its early going. The ratings have been good and the response was strong enough for The CW to renew the show for season 2 early in its run.
“The phenomenal multiplatform debut of SUPERMAN & LOIS, which delivered for us in a big way on both a linear and streaming basis, is a testament to the creativity, hard work and dedication of the talented people who worked tirelessly in front of and behind the camera, especially in this challenging environment,” Mark Pedowitz, Chairman and CEO of The CW said at the time of the renewal. “We are thrilled to now have two brand-new bonafide hits in SUPERMAN & LOIS and WALKER, both of which have been renewed for next season along with 11 other of our shows, further positioning us for continued strength and stability for next season.”
The series stars Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Jordan Elsass as Jonathan Kent, Alexander Garfin as Jordan Kent, Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing, Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cushing, Wolé Parks as The Stranger, Adam Rayner as Morgan Edge with Dylan Walsh as General Samuel Lane and Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang Cushing.
Superman & Lois returns on May 18.
