SUPERMAN & LOIS TV Series Starring Tyler Hoechlin & Elizabeth Tulloch In The Works At The CW

With the big-screen Man of Steel seemingly sidelined for the foreseeable future, it appears that The CW is actively developing a new small-screen series for the Last Son of Krypton and his lady love.

Breaking news to kickstart your week as multiple sources are reporting that The CW, in collaboration with Warner Bros. TV, are developing a new Supergirl spinoff series, titled Superman & Lois, which will star Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch in the title roles as DC Comics' most iconic couple. 

According to the synopsis, the series will tell an all-new story about "the world’s most famous Super Hero and comic books’ most famous journalist as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.

Former The Flash showrunner Todd Helbing, who stepped down from his role on the Grant Gustin-led series to focus on Superman & Lois in March, will pen the pilot and will serve as an executive producer for the potential series with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns also attached. 

Both Hoechlin and Tulloch are Arrowverse vets, with the former having appeared in multiple episodes of Supergirl and the latter joining him in last year's "Elseworlds" crossover. Both are also slated to reprise their roles in the upcoming "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover this December. 

Superman & Lois is now the second DC Comics series in development for the 2020/2021 television season, joining the Arrow spinoff Green Arrow and the Canaries, which will star Katie Cassidy, Juliana Harkavy and Katherine McNamara. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I could not be more grateful for the opportunity to tell this story, that for now shall remain a secret. But I’ve been blessed with nothing less than the most wonderful people to do it alongside of. I couldn’t ask for a better partner than @BitsieTulloch in all of this. I’ve already learned so much from her and I know that won’t stop anytime soon. So thank you @gregberlanti and everyone else who brought her in as our Lois Lane. All the people behind the scenes care so much about these characters and their lives and the parts to which we’ll be speaking about, it gives me great comfort to know that they’ll steer us in the right direction. Thank you to everyone that said “yes” to this project (Warner Brothers, DC, CW). We won’t let you down. It’s going to be a grand adventure. Can’t wait to get to work! P.S. I had no idea this picture existed when someone grabbed the shot of Bitsie and I on the monitor, and I just noticed today the resemblance of my expression to that of Mr. Reeves. Had to share. Hope we make something he would be proud of. Up, up!

@tylerhoechlin and I are so happy that we can finally talk about this project!!! I am so excited (thank you @warnerbrostv, @dccomics, @thecw, @gberlanti et al). Our incredible showrunner Todd Helbing is writing SUCH a riveting, unique, and poignant story for us. And I couldn’t ask for a better or more fun partner than Tyler 🎉 Also, in the interest of reiterating how much I LOVE playing #LoisLane, I’m reposting part of the blurb I wrote when I was first cast a year ago: Excuse me while I fangirl for a moment: When I started acting, one of my teachers asked me to watch the screen tests for the role of Lois Lane for 1978’s Superman. All of the actresses were terrific, but it was always clear to me why Margot Kidder won the role: she seemed lit from within, full of joie de vivre. Now, at a time when the noble profession of journalism feels under siege, it’s a privilege to join the club of actresses who have played the dogged reporter. As far back as 1938 when she first appeared in Action Comics #1, Lois Lane has defied and subverted society’s expectations of how women should behave. She was portrayed as opinionated, inquisitive, and an unapologetically badass career woman at a time when many representations of women leaned more towards meek and demure. One of the reasons the character has remained so compelling for the last 80 years is that she has all these formidable, strong-willed qualities, but she’s also vulnerable, romantic, and feminine. A truly modern woman. ❤️
