Get ready for the new daily show

The CW’s Superman & Lois gets official series order and first look drops at Green Arrow and the Canaries

January 15th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, we knew it was planned but now The CW has revealed that their Superman & Lois series has officially gotten the series order.

After the wrap of The Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover last night (Review!) we learned that Clark and Lois have now got two sons in the new continuity and that The CW’s three universes of Arrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning have all – as predicted – merged into one, so this show will have brave new ground to cover.

As well as that, with Arrow only having two episodes to go before it wraps up, The CW is looking for a new hero to join Flash, Batwoman, Supergirl, Black Lightning and the Legends… who better than the Man of Steel?

Obviously, Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch will lead the series when it hits during the 2020-21 TV season.

As well as this, the backdoor pilot of Arrow hoping to lead to its own new series, Green Arrow and the Canaries, airs on January 21, and we have our first look at Mia (who actually rocks that GL suit) and the gang:

Superman & Lois will film its first episode this spring, ahead of the May Upfronts and is currently at the writing phase while Green Arrow and the Canaries has yet to get an official series order.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
