The upcoming fourth season of the CW’s “Superman & Lois” will be its last. The series’ final ten episodes are set to air in 2024.
Without “Superman & Lois,” only three shows from before Nexstar’s acquisition of the CW will remain on the network: “All American,” “All American: Homecoming” and Walker.” The conclusion was expected, however, as DC Studios heads James Gunn and Peter Safran indicated to press in January that they expected the series to run for “one or two more seasons.”

Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing developed “Superman & Lois” based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Helbing serves as co-showrunner with Brent Fletcher, and both executive produce alongside Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns. The show hails from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
“Over the last three seasons, ‘Superman & Lois’ redefined both the superhero genre and family drama as Tyler, Elizabeth and the entire cast effortlessly portrayed these classic characters with new layers of depth and complexity that had never before been explored in the Superman universe,” said Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment at the CW Network. “We are grateful for the years of hard work and graceful storytelling from the show’s writers, producers, actors and crew, as well as our terrific partners at Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions. As Superman embarks on his final flight, the team is leaving us with an absolutely epic 10-episode must-watch-every-minute farewell to one of the most legendary CW families ever.”
“While we’re sad to say goodbye to ‘Superman & Lois’ at the end of Season 4, we’re grateful for the time we’ve had with our amazing cast, crew, VFX teams, editors, musical geniuses, and writers. Since the day this show was first discussed, it was about family. And that’s what was created—on and off screen,” said showrunners Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher. “We’d like to thank our partners at Berlanti Productions, DC, WB and the CW for their endless support and enthusiasm during this journey … and give a very special thank you to all the fans for tuning in. We’re thrilled about what we have in store in our final season, and can’t wait for everyone to watch as Superman, Lois and all our heroes face off against the biggest threat in the show’s history — Lex Luthor.”
