It's hard to kill Superman, but his days on the CW are numbered — and it's not because of Kryptonite.
The network announced on Thursday that Superman & Lois will end after season 4. The DC Comics drama starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the titular couple will return in 2024 with a 10-episode final season.
"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," showrunners Todd Helbing and Brent Fletcher said in a statement. "Since the day this show was first discussed, it was about family. And that's what was created — on and off screen. 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."
The showrunners added they're "thrilled" about what's to come in the 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."
Season 3 ended on a massive cliffhanger, as Lex Luthor (Michael Cudlitz) turned Bizarro (Hoechlin) turned into Doomsday, and he fought Superman (also Hoechlin) in a knock-down, drag-out, destructive battle royale that ended up on the moon.
