Superman & Lois will enjoy an extra-strength debut.
The CW announced Wednesday that the series premiere on February 23rd will be ninety minutes long (counting commercials). Following the premiere, the network will also run Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope, a behind-the-scenes look at the return of Superman to television featuring the cast and “special guests discussing the legacy of the Man of Steel.”
The series itself stars Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as the titular Superman and Lois. Following the events of “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” the couple find their new born son Jonathon now had a brother, Jordan, and — thanks to further effects of the Crisis — both are now teenagers. Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin play their sons. The family also returns to Smallville, where Clark encounters old flame Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and her family. But all this nascent family drama is upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks) enters their lives.
The switch to a 90-minute premiere means the Season 7 debut of The Flash will move one week to March 2nd.
