The highly anticipated series, “Superman & Lois” unveiled an epic new trailer ahead of their premiere, which is set for February 23. The trailer revealed that the series premiere will in fact be a two hour long spectacle.
For the first time in almost a decade DC Comics’ original power couple will be gracing our screens once again, starring in their new CW series ‘Superman and Lois.’ The CW awarded the new ‘Superman and Lois’ show, along with the Walker Texas Ranger reboot, starring ‘Supernatural’s’ Jared Padalecki, directly to series in mid January 2020.
Starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the tetilur Lois and Clark, the newest installment to The CW’s superhero franchise will be an historic first for Metropolis’ finest.
This will be the first Superman-themed program celebrating what happens after the pair’s happily ever after. There’s no rudimentary origin story for Superman’s heroics or the Man of Steel’s relationship with the Daily Planet’s ace newshound Lois Lane. All of that backstory has already been established.
In this significantly original Superman and Lois series fans will also get to see the two struggle as parents.
Like all entertainment in production throughout 2020, “Superman and Lois” has experienced delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the show is preparing for filming, cast members have all practiced CDC recommended guidelines and participated in self quarantine. Safety seems to be top priority for everyone involved in the series with regular COVID tests taking place.
In SUPERMAN & LOIS, after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, “Little Fires Everywhere”) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, “The Peanuts Movie”) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older.
Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) enters their lives.”
