Will Superman and Lois air a new episode tonight, May 4?

Superman and Lois normally airs new episodes on Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. ET. Has The CW scheduled one up for tonight?

The CW has not aired a new episode of Superman and Lois for six weeks now. That means that, since it debuted back in February, it has spent more weeks off the air than on the air.

The show is a step in a new direction for the Arrowverse. Bringing back Supergirl stars Tyler Hoechlin and Bitsie Tulloch as their versions of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, the series has essentially used Crisis On Infinite Earths to completely reboot their story.

Now with two teenage sons, Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alex Garfin), the super parents have moved back to Smallville in the hopes of starting afresh – both with their kids and with life itself. However, the crime and the stories soon follow these two as Smallville now harbors two major threats to the Kent family. This looks like a job for Superman and Lois Lane, but is it one they will be tackling this week?

Is Superman and Lois new tonight, May 4?

Superman and Lois will not be airing a new episode tonight. The show normally airs new episodes on Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. immediately following The Flash but it will be replaced by a new episode of Supergirl season 6.

The show’s recent departure from screens is down to the fact that production was temporarily halted a number of weeks ago. This COVID-related production pause meant that Superman & Lois had to take break from screens as well, otherwise the show would have likely run out of episodes to broadcast at an inopportune time. This earlier-than-planned midseason hiatus gives everyone involved a chance to ensure that the show will return to air with enough episodes when it’s supposed to.

When does Superman and Lois return to The CW?

Superman and Lois will fly back onto screens on Tuesday, May 18, with a new episode airing on The CW at 9:00 p.m. ET. It will replace Supergirl (which is currently holding its timeslot), allowing that show to take a temporary hiatus before it returns in the summer for its final 13 episodes.

Meanwhile Superman & Lois still has another ten episodes to air, meaning that the majority of the season is yet to come. And after those intense, emotional and compelling first five episodes, fans are undoubtedly excited for the Fam of Steel’s epic return.

The next episode, season 1 episode 6, is titled “Broken Trust” and it will continue the show’s overarching story as the Kent family tries to help Jordan with his powers and Jonathan to fit in while Clark and Lois also investigate Captain Luthor and Morgan Edge.

In the meantime, make sure you continue to support the SuperFam and tune into a new episode of Supergirl season 6 tonight.
