The CW has renewed Superman and Lois for a 10-episode fourth season, following months of negotiations. The series was one of three shows on the network in collaboration with Warner Bros. pending renewal alongside All American: Homecoming and Gotham Knights.

Superman & Lois has aired for three seasons on the CW and was part of the Arrowverse. Created by Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing and based on the DC Comics characters, the series stars Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the infamous duo.

As Deadline reported earlier this evening, the CW was close to announcing both the DC series and All American: Homecoming would move ahead with new seasons alongside previously renewed tentpoles All American and Walker. Freshman series Gotham Knights has been cancelled.

To make the dual deals possible there will be budget cuts that include reducing the number of series regular cast members. Superman & Lois has 12 series regulars, Deadline hears the leads are not expected to be affected but supporting cast members will likely be. (Speeding up the decision is the fact that cast options are set to expire this week.)

Additionally, the CW is likely to share some library streaming rights to Superman & Lois, which is now available on Max.

“We are thrilled to bring All American: Homecoming and Superman & Lois back to The CW,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network, in a statement. “These series are two of our strongest performers across our linear and digital platforms with some of the most passionate fanbases in all of television. We are grateful to our partners at Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions for their continued collaboration, and we cannot wait to get started on the new seasons.”

Superman & Lois has been on par with All American and Walker. But, with its superhero nature, it also is more expensive due to extensive special effects. In addition to trimming the cast, the series likely would lean more heavily into its core premise as a family drama going forward while still honoring its superhero roots.
