The CW set to develop a new ‘Superman & Lois’ TV series

With the epic Crisis on Infinite Earths Arrow-verse crossover just around the corner, it appears that we’ll be seeing more of Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane as the CW are set to star in their own series.

According to Deadline, the series will revolve around the world’s most famous Super Hero and comic books’ most famous journalist as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.

Former The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing will pen the script and executive produce the potential series with Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns via Berlanti Productions.

Hoechlin has been portraying the man of steel on the small screen primarily in Supergirl since 2016, with Tulloch’s Lois Lane debuting last year in the Elseworlds crossover.

With Arrow reaching it’s final conclusion this year, The CW is setting it’s sights on the future of the DC shows with Superman & Lois and the female-focused Arrow spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries starring Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy.

One of my favourite TV shows when I was younger was Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, so I’m definitely intrigued to try this. I do however think this signals the departure of Henry Cavill as the big screen counterpart of Supes, which is really sad! What do you think of the news? Let us know in the comments below!
