Superman & Lois Season 4 Premiere Date Revealed

The CW has announced the premiere dates for its fall lineup of shows, revealing when the hotly-anticipated fourth and final season of Superman & Lois will debut on the network.

When does Superman & Lois Season 4 premiere on The CW?

Per Deadline, Superman & Lois will return for its final season with a two-episode premiere on Thursday, October 17, 2024, at 8 pm ET. The fan-favorite DC superhero drama series follows married couple Clark Kent/Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) as they return to Smallville with their twin sons, Jonathan (Michael Bishop), and Jordan Kent (Alex Garfin).

Superman & Lois was renewed for a fourth season in June 2023, with The CW announcing that November that it would be the show’s last. The final season came with a massive cast exodus, with seven actors departing as series regulars. Joining Hoechlin, Tulloch, Bishop, and Garfin as main cast members will be Michael Cudlitz, who debuted at the end of last season as Lex Luthor.

The fan-favorite superhero drama series has also added Yvonne Chapman and Douglas Smith to its ensemble cast. Both will recur throughout Season 4 as Amanda McCoy and Jimmy Olsen, respectively. Chapman’s Amanda McCoy is described as being part of “Luthor’s inner circle” while Smith’s Jimmy Olsen is “an extroverted 20-something known for being the ‘life of the party’ around the office.”

When Superman & Lois concludes it will mark the end of almost 20 years of DC superhero content on The CW. Since the network launched back in 2006, The CW has had at least one DC superhero series on its schedule, save for the 2010-11 season. From October 2012 to May 2023, The CW was notable for being the home of the Arrowverse, a shared universe of DC series that includes Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Batwoman, and Black Lightning.

Superman & Lois was initially developed as an Arrowverse series. However, this connection was downplayed with the creatives ultimately deciding during Season 2 to set the show on its own Earth to allow them more storytelling freedom.
