Superman & Lois are reuniting the family earlier than expected.
If you’ve followed the CW for the last few years, then you know that the Tuesday night slots are highly coveted. The network made some recent changes to their scheduled programming that involves moving a heavy hitter like The Flash, which hasn’t moved spots since its debut (!).
Superman & Lois, which has risen in popularity, will take the 8 pm slot starting in 2022. Riverdale, which has seen constant changes to its time slot, will also move to Wednesday nights while Naomi will take its place on Tuesdays. Both Naomi and Superman & Lois will air on January 11th.
The Flash will keep its slot for the upcoming five-part crossover called “Armageddon”. Crossovers became a constant and popular event for the DC CW shows. This latest one will be premiering in two weeks, bringing back characters like Black Lightning and Mia Smoke as the new Green Arrow. Other DC shows like Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return in January to finish off their respective seasons.
ONE LAST HURRAH FOR THE FLASH BEFORE SUPERMAN TAKES OVER?
Rumors exist that a Flash villain will appear in the sophomore season of the Man of Steel since Central City was mentioned towards the end of season one as Tegan reveals to Jonathan Kent that her dad is in Prison in Central City. For those that have watched The Flash, Central City is the birthplace for a lot of metahumans due to the particle accelerator explosion that gave Barry Allen his powers, but also enhanced crooks all throughout the city with metahuman abilities as well.
It will be interesting to see John Diggle makes another cameo, or if season 2 of Superman & Lois will partake in the next crossover event, which will probably be The Flash’s last crossover since the show is nearing an end. I also wonder if the former judge, jury, and executioner of Star City Stephen Amell will return for The Flash‘s upcoming crossover.
The actor has voiced his wishes to wear the suit one more time. The actor wrapped up his experience as the archer after CW’s last crossover event “Crisis on Infinite Earths” in which (spoiler alert, spoiler alert, spoiler alert. That’s three times. I warned you…) Oliver Queen died and became The Spectre. The event solidified Mia Smoak as the next Green Arrow but also, once and for all, showed the skeptical fans that Tyler Hoechlin is worthy of the Superman suit.
Since we are on the subject of Superman & Lois, season 2 promises to create some complicated plotlines from those that tune in Tuesday nights. The season finale revealed (let’s do this again… spoiler alert!) that John Henry Iron’s daughter, Natalie, is alive. Her arrival will most likely change some of the dynamics between these characters as her mom, Lois Lane from her Earth, is dead, but the main Lois Lane from the series is alive and well.
