Unfortunately, though, we are now in a spot where we will be waiting for a good while still to see something more on the air. There is no new episode tonight, and the plan is going to be keeping us waiting for a good while to see what lies ahead here. Our hope, at least for now, is that the show comes back either in January or March of next year.
What we know moving forward is rather simple: We’re going to have a slightly shorter season of just ten episodes, and the main cast has been scaled back, as well — the only series-regular characters now are the Kent family and then also Lex Luthor (Michael Cudlitz, who was recently promoted). Note that this not necessarily a creative choice, but rather what needed to be done to keep the show on the air on a cost-conscious CW operating under new ownership.
Will this be the final season of Superman & Lois? That’s something we can’t rule out for multiple reasons, whether it be the aforementioned ownership change or the simple fact that DC has some other plans for the Superman character.
All we hope is that in the event that season 4 is the end, we have a chance to learn sooner rather than later. The last thing that we want is to learn about this at the last minute and without some proper conclusion.
What do you most want to see moving into Superman & Lois season 4, no matter when it premieres?
Be sure to share right now in the comments! Once you do just that, remember to also come back for even more information moving forward.
