The CW has given a straight-to-series order for Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman & Lois.
In the fall of 2019, it was announced that The CW was developing a Superman & Lois series centered on Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch’s versions of the iconic duo. Now, The CW has officially taken the rare step of bypassing the pilot stage by giving a straight-to-series order to Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Superman & Lois.
The script-to-series pickup for Superman & Lois will be for The CW’s 2020-21 television season, with Deadline noting that the early order for the Tyler Hoechlin series will likely give the network enough time to hire writers, producers, and directors in order to produce scripts and episodes ahead of a potential writer’s strike. The first episodes of Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman & Lois will be filmed this spring ahead of The CW’s upfronts presentation in May.
Full details on Superman & Lois are under wraps for the time being, but the Tyler Hoechlin series is described as revolving “around the world’s most famous superhero and comics’ most famous journalist [as they] deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.” Written by The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing, Superman & Lois will be executive produced by Helbing, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns.
Of course, fans still have to found out how Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Lois Lane will return after they were wiped away from existence in Crisis on Infinite Earths. The fourth chapter of Crisis on Infinite Earths airs on January 14th at 8:00 p.m. on The CW and you can read the official synopsis below:
OLIVER HAS BECOME SOMETHING ELSE IN PART FOUR OF “CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS.” EPISODE PENNED BY MARV WOLFMAN & MARC GUGGENHEIM – Stuck in the Vanishing Point, the Paragons search for a way to escape.
