Superman & Lois Story
Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of the CW…
“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, Teen Wolf) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, Grimm), 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, Little Fires Everywhere) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, The Peanuts Movie) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, Entourage), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, Graceland). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, Wander Darkly). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, Nip/Tuck) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when both a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, All American) and impassioned self-made mogul Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner, Tyrant) enter their lives.”

Superman & Lois Episodes
The first season of Superman & Lois will consist of 15 episodes. Here’s everything we know about them so far…
Superman & Lois Episode 1: Pilot
“There’s barely a moment in the first episode of Superman & Lois that isn’t positively saturated with love for these characters and their history. Here, the inherent earnestness of a nearly all-powerful man who chooses to spend his time helping others and a woman who believes you don’t need powers to save the world (only the truth) isn’t something to be hidden behind faux-philosophy or angst, and instead something to be celebrated. In that respect and several others, it’s the Superman show fans have been waiting for.”
Episode 2: Heritage
Episode 3: The Perks of Not Being a Wallflower
Episode 4: Haywire
Episode 5: The Beacon
Episode 6: TBA
We’ll update this with more information as it becomes available. We’ll have much more coverage of Superman & Lois as we get closer to the premiere.
