Superman & Lois has been filming in Vancouver for a month or so, after starting late and then pausing because of Covid-testing-delays and then Covid exposures.

Revised filming dates: October 21st to May 1st 2021.

Cast: Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch, Jordan Elsass, Alexander Garfin, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Erik Valdez, Inde Navarrette, Dylan Walsh, Wolé Parks.

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.

Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez). 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). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh) 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 a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks) enters their lives.

Showrunner: Todd Helbing.

Producers: Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns.

What’s new for Superman & Lois?:

There’s going to be a really badass Superman suit in this show that we’re pretty excited about….[The original] suit wasn’t built to sustain a series…we have a fresh slate. — Todd Helbing.

Superman is getting a new super suit.

This family needs Smallville as much as the world needs Superman. — Clark Kent.

After the events of crossover Crisis On Infinite Earths, Clark Kent and Lois Lane will return to Smallville with their two teen boys to make a new life for themselves as working parents.

Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane in the Arrowverse:

We met Tyler Hoechlin’s version of Clark Kent/Superman in season 2 of  Supergirl.

And met Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane two years later in the Arrowverse crossover Elseworlds.

On Smallville’s Kent Farm in Aldergrove for the Elseworlds crossover.

Superman & Lois returned for the next crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths with their adorable baby son Jonathan.

And visited Earth 167’s Kent Farm where Smallville’s Clark Kent (Tom Welling) was living with Lois and their two daughters.

But after Crisis on Infinite Earths and the changes from Oliver Queen’s reboot of the multiverse, we found out Superman & Lois have teen boys at home — not an adorable baby.
