“The phenomenal multiplatform debut of Superman & Lois, which delivered for us in a big way on both a linear and streaming basis, is a testament to the creativity, hard work and dedication of the talented people who worked tirelessly in front of and behind the camera, especially in this challenging environment,” Mark Pedowitz, Chairman and CEO, The CW Network, said in a statement.

The other shows already renewed for the 2021-2022 season are: All American, Batwoman, Charmed, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, In the Dark, Legacies, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, Roswell, New Mexico, and Walker.

The 90-minute series premiere of Superman & Lois gave the CW its best night of primetime in over two years (January 2019) and delivered the largest day-one streaming audience for a new series in the network’s history.
