The filming for the season began on September 6, 2022, and is scheduled to conclude on March 13, 2023.

Superman & Lois Season 3: What to expect?

The series is based on the DC Comics characters Superman and Lois Lane, created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The third season of Superman & Lois opens weeks after Superman’s blowout defeat of Ally Allston. Clark (Hoechlin) and Lois (Tulloch) now are working at the Smallville Gazette together and enjoying small-town life. But the Kents’ romantic bliss only shines a light on how isolating “the secret” can be, as Chrissy (Sofia Hasmik) struggles to balance a new love interest and her friendship with Lois. However, Lois’ own work-life balance is put to the test when an undercover assignment reveals a deadly foe that promises to change the Kent family forever. Superman would move heaven and earth for his family, but with a villain this merciless, even that might not be enough. 

Meanwhile, the Kent boys find themselves being pulled in opposite directions as Jordan (Alex Garfin) discovers what a superhero identity really means and Jonathan (Michael Bishop) searches for a purpose beyond the football field. Amid all this upheaval, John Henry (Wolé Parks) is haunted by his doppelgänger’s past, leading to dangerous consequences for him and Natalie (Tayler Buck). Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and Kyle (Erik Valdez) redefine their family post-separation, while Sarah (Inde Navarrette) explores what the future holds for her and Jordan now that she knows the truth about his powers. Having learned the hard way that no one else can be trusted to work with Superman, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh) reclaims his post at the Department of Defense, only to face his own conflict in working with his grandson, Jordan.

The season was produced by Berlanti Productions, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television. The main cast members of the series who are expected to reprise their roles in the new season are as follows Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Michael Bishop as Jonathan Kent, Alex Garfin as Jordan Kent, Erik Valdez as Fire Chief Kyle Cushing, Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cushing, Wolé Parks as John Henry Irons, Tayler Buck as Natalie Lane Irons, Sofia Hasmik as Chrissy Beppo, Dylan Walsh as General Sam Lane, and Emmanuelle Chriqui as Mayor Lana Lang Cushing.  This will be the first season of Superman & Lois to not feature Jordan Elsass (Jonathan Kent) as a series regular. The recurring cast members include Chad L. Coleman as Bruno Mannheim, David Ramsey as John Diggle, and Adam Rayner as Tal-Rho.
