When Superman & Lois arrived on The CW, the series put a new spin on the Superman character. Instead of focusing on his heroics as the Man of Steel, the show focused on Tyler Hoechlin's Clark Kent returning to Smallville with his wife Lois Lane and their twin sons. It put as much emphasis on what was happening in the town as it did on any threats to the world or the universe.

Elizabeth Tulloch co-stars opposite Hoechlin as Lois Lane, with Jordan Elsass and Alex Garfin as their sons Jonathan and Jordan, who have begun developing superpowers like their famous father. In Season 2, Superman & Lois expanded its world with a subplot about Clark's old friend Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui) running for mayor of Smallville, while Clark battles everyone from Bizarro to a mysterious cult called The Inverse Method.

Has 'Superman & Lois' been renewed for Season 3?

Superman fans can stop holding their breath because The CW announced via press release on March 22, 2022, that Superman & Lois would be returning to the network for Season 3.

The series was one of seven CW shows renewed for next season, including All American, Kung Fu, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Walker and the only other remaining Arrowverse drama, The Flash. However, with The Flash entering Season 9, Superman & Lois has a while to go before it catches up to the Scarlet Speedster!

The renewal news doesn't come as a huge shock, since Superman & Lois Season 2 has improved by leaps and bounds over the already solid Season 1. While the first season was a great opening chapter, the second has continued to reimagine the Superman characters in new ways, like revealing that Clark's evil counterpart Bizarro was actually trying to stop a much bigger threat — cult leader Ally Allston, who's trying to take over not one but two worlds.

Knowing that there's a Season 3 means viewers can rest easy that the battle against Ally won't be Superman's last stand, and that Superman & Lois will have the time to further explore storylines like the result of the mayoral election and what that will mean for Smallville.
