CW Adds SUPERGIRL Spinoff SUPERMAN & LOIS To Its Superhero Shows Lineup

It may be a mild spoiler for tonight’s Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event, but the network has picked up to series the Supergirl spinoff, Superman & Lois.

The new series will see Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch reprising their now titular characters from their various guest appearances on Supergirl as the Man of Steel and his wife navigating “all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.”

Word first came that the CW was developing a spinoff for the Man of Steel back in October.

Arrowverse veterans Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns are all set to executive produce.

Still no word on the fate of that CW superhero show in development, Green Arrow And The Canaries, an Arrow that would be set in the future and feature Oliver Queen’s daughter leading a new team of superheroes. That project’s backdoor pilot airs next Tuesday as a regular episode of Arrow.

It won’t be until May when the networks hold their upfront announcements and reveal their upcoming Fall schedules, so for now, where Superman & Lois will fit into the CW schedule remains a mystery. The network has already renewals for all of their shows, with the exception of Arrow and Supernatural, which had been previously announced as ending this season.
