Superman & Lois Season 4 Release Date and Time Slot

Much to viewers’ delight, the beloved superhero drama series was renewed for a 10-episode run for its highly anticipated fourth season earlier this month.

Superman & Lois, which was part of the CW’s Arrowverse, will stick to its premise, which follows: After years of facing supervillains, monsters, and alien invaders, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel, aka Clark Kent, and comic books’ famed journalist Lois Lane come face to face with one of their greatest challenges ever – dealing with being working parents in today’s society. 

Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois worry about whether their sons, Jonathan and Jordan, could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang and her Fire Chief husband, Kyle Cushing. 

The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville, as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah. Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, Gen. Samuel Lane, looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice.

The next season will also pick up the plotlines from the third season, in which the viewers got to learn that Superman is contending with the plots of Intergang as Lois Lane suffers from Stage 3 inflammatory breast cancer. Moreover, the season finale, “What Kills You Only Makes You Stronger,” revealed that 32 days later, Smallville prepares for a meteor shower celebration. Chrissy learns that she is pregnant, and she and Kyle tell their friends and family. 

The Kent family plans a trip to Italy, Sam offers John a job creating tech for the DOD in Metropolis, John and Lana go on a date, Jonathan tries to regain Coach Gaines’ trust, and Clark pushes Jordan to reconcile with Sarah, though they decide not to remain friends. Meanwhile, Luthor has Judge Reagen killed. Sam meets with a woman he meets online named Gretchen, but she abducts him and delivers him to Luthor. 

At the celebration, Kyle and Chrissy get engaged. After discovering that the Inverse Superman is revived and strengthened each time he dies, Luthor repeatedly kills him and transforms him into a monster. Luthor unleashes the monster on Superman, who publicly defeats him and carries him into space. Remembering his family, Clark continues fighting on the moon. So, it is pretty evident that this cliffhanger will play a crucial part in developing the story of the next season.

Superman & Lois Season 4 Episodes and Streaming Options

As previously noted, the show has been renewed with a 10-episode order with an average runtime of 40–45 minutes, which is fewer than the typical 13-episode order for a CW legacy series!

The main reason for this reduced episode count has been clarified which is due to the show’s elaborate visual effects, which cost more money than those of other CW indigenous dramas. In addition to reducing the cast, the show would probably go forward with a stronger emphasis on its central idea of a family drama while maintaining its superhero roots, perhaps due to the increased expense, which can be adjusted by reducing the VFX-heavy plotline in the season. 

The series is available exclusively on The CW, with the episodes also airing on the CTV Sci-Fi Channel in Canada.  

The BBC acquired the UK broadcast rights to the show. The series premiered on BBC One on December 4, 2021, and was made available to stream on BBC iPlayer. Later, these episodes will be available to stream for free on the official CW website or app. Moreover, all the seasons of the series are currently available to watch on Max and FuboTV. The viewers can also stream it by renting or purchasing it on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and Vudu, with a vast number of membership plans.
