Superman & Lois TV Series Eyed at The CW

The CW's Arrowverse is expanding. 

According to The Hollywood Reporter, another TV set in the universe is in the works. 

The latest is Superman & Lois and would find Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch reprising their roles as the title characters. 

Superman and Lois Lane - Arrow

The series is already in development at the young-skewing network, and like the shows that came before it, there's a good chance it will get a series order quickly. 

Superman & Lois will be produced by Greg Berlanti, while Todd Helbing has been tapped to write the script as well as serve as an executive producer.

It will focus on Clarke Kent and Lois Lane as they deal with all "the stress, pressures, and complexities that come with being working parents in today's society."

Superman & Lois joins a development slate that already includes another Arroverse series, one featuring Katie Cassidy, Julianna Harkavy, and Kat McNamara reprising their Arrow roles. 

Arrow is slated to conclude this season, so it was expected that the network would look at ways to bring more series to life set in the franchise. 

Batwoman only launched earlier this month and has garnered decent reviews and ratings. It also recently snagged a full season order, confirming that the network was sticking behind the DC TV franchise. 

Elizabeth Tulloch

The Arrowverse includes the network's most popular series, so it was a given that more shows would be drafted in to fill the void from the loss of Arrow. 

But The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl are expected to continue into the 2021 season.

However, Supergirl has been slipping in the ratings of late, so the Superman & Lois series could ultimately be a replacement for that one. 

Time will tell. 

Hoechlin first appeared as Superman back in 2016. Tulloch first appeared on-screen as Lois during the 2018 crossover.

For now, the franchise as a whole is slated to change the DC TV universe forever thanks to the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.
