James Gunn and Peter Safran have assured DC Comics fans that “Superman & Lois,” the beloved CW superhero series, is not in any danger of being canceled right now. In fact, Gunn and Safran predict (via Deadline) that “Superman & Lois” will likely continue for another season or two. Gunn himself reportedly noted during a recent press event that fans’ support for the series is strong enough to warrant its continued existence. “It’s a show everybody likes, so it’s going to keep going for a little bit,” the DC Studios co-CEO said.
Gunn and Safran’s comments come a little less than two months ahead of the “Superman & Lois” Season 3 premiere. The Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch-led series’ 15-episode second season came to an end in June 2022, but the show’s third season is expected to make its long-awaited premiere on March 14. Now, thanks to Gunn and Safran, it looks like “Superman & Lois” fans can head into its Season 3 premiere without having to worry about whether or not the series’ latest batch of episodes will be its last.
Gunn and Safran do not, however, have anything currently in development with “Superman & Lois” producer Greg Berlanti, whose previous producing credits include “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Titans,” and several other DC titles. The duo’s update, in other words, only throws Berlanti’s possible involvement in the future of the DCU into further question.
During a period where the future of many of Warner Bros.’ pre-existing DC projects is so uncertain, though, comic book fans can now take comfort in knowing that “Superman & Lois” won’t be going anywhere for at least another year or two.
