Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch will reprise their roles as Superman and Lois in the second season of Superman & Lois.
For a second season, Superman & Lois will return to our televisions.
The Arrowverse is a reboot of the Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois Lane (Gillian Anderson) tale (Elizabeth Tulloch). If you haven’t finished season one yet, be aware that there are spoilers below.
While the Kent family acclimated to life in Smallville, Superman battled his Kryptonian half-brother Tal-Rho/Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner) in the first season of the Arrowverse series.
Natalie, the daughter another version of Lois had with John (Wole Parks) on his Earth, crashed landed onto the Kent farm, ending the season on a huge cliffhanger. Natalie was taken aback when she saw her mother standing beside the man who had allegedly murdered her.
Season one was a lot to deal with, but the Arrowverse series’ family issues aren’t going to end there.
Series showrunner Todd Helbing told ahead of season two that the new episodes will go deeper into the Lane family’s history and feature the debut of Lois’s sister Lucy (Jenna Dewan).
“I think last year, with all of our cast, we discovered the types of stories we can tell in respect to Lois’s miscarriage incident,” he stated. “So we wanted to really dig into the Lane family’s history, introduce Lucy, and give the audience an understanding of why Lois is the way she is, why [General] Lane (Dylan Walsh) is the way he is, why Lois hadn’t talked about Lucy, why [General] Lane never talked about their mother, and then really fold that into the couple to see how they would deal with a situation like that,” says the director.
“When I thought about Lois Lane’s character and how her relationship with [General] Lane had evolved over the first season, it really felt like, you know, you can go two ways when something like that happens to you: You can go the way of Lois if you’re an alpha type, like ‘I can compartmentalize, I can just deal with trauma and move on,’ or you can go the way of General Lane if you’re an alpha type, like ‘I can compartmentalize And in many respects, it seems like the ideal mate for Superman, right? Because she is strong enough to not be concerned about him while he goes out to save the world.
“But then there’s the other side, where you feel like something is missing in your life, and that’s kind of what Lucy and I explore.”
Meanwhile, with the first season now accessible to view in its entirety on BBC iPlayer, many fans will be wondering when the next episodes will be available.
