CW Executive Describes Final Season of ‘Superman & Lois’ as “Deserving of an Emmy”

Superman & Lois

Even though it’s not part of the larger Arrowverse, ‘Superman & Lois’ stands out as the CW’s top superhero show, boasting high-quality writing. While it faced challenges, especially last year, the series managed to survive Nexstar’s acquisition of CW, which led to restructuring and numerous cancellations across the network.

This resulted in some main cast members being released, fewer writers onboard, and a reduced episode count compared to past seasons. Now, after several months of filming, production on the final season of ‘Superman & Lois’ has concluded, gearing up for its Fall 2024 release.

Just ahead of its anticipated airing, Brad Schwartz, The CW’s President of Entertainment, is full of praise for the upcoming final season of the beloved superhero series. In an interview with TVLine, he highlighted that this season stands alone, offering a self-contained storyline that can be enjoyed even without prior knowledge of the show’s past seasons.

I have watched nine of the 10 episodes and [they are] f–king awesome. It is weekly event television. Greg Berlanti and the producers have constructed 10 bangers. They really go for it. I’ve cried twice watching [the first nine episodes], and I haven’t even gotten to the finale yet. It’s Emmy-worthy. And, by the way, you can watch this final season without having watched the previous [seasons] and still be emotionally invested in what is happening. It’s a wonderful, 10-episode, contained arc.

The upcoming and final season of ‘Superman & Lois’ will comprise 10 episodes and is scheduled to premiere in the Fall of this year. Notably, the show has shifted its release day from Wednesdays to Thursdays.
