Another DC Comics-based show, Superman & Lois, was released on February 23rd, 2021. Created by Todd Helbing and Greg Berlanti, the show takes a unique approach to the original Superman character. Superman & Lois is more about Superman’s family life than his world-saving adventures.
The CW show has, since its launch, released three seasons, with its third season released on March 14th, 2023, which is currently ongoing. The show revolves around the famous superhero, Superman, and his wife, an equally popular journalist, and how they manage their lives with their sons.
The show was created to be released as part of the Arrowverse, but the makers went against the idea and launched it as a separate universe based on a parallel Earth. While we are used to seeing Superman in action, constantly coming to save the day, this show takes a more personal and human approach to the superhero.
The show explores more of Clark Kent and less of Superman. We see through Superman & Lois how the couple survives worldly tasks, managing their jobs, saving the world, and raising two boys. Though fans of the show were skeptical about this perspective of Superman, since its release, the show has garnered positive reviews. Some believe that the show’s approach causes it to stand out from the plethora of superhero shows in today’s time.
Superman & Lois Season 3 Plotline
Season three of Superman & Lois was released on March 14th, 2023. Based on the DC superhero, the show continues to explore the raw human-ness of the character. Right from its start, the show focused on the character’s very average person struggles. How the couple, while being involved in world-ending problems, manage their normal people jobs and raise their kids.
Season three of the show picks off from where the previous season ended. It starts twenty-seven days after Superman fought off the evil forces from season two. Lois has a pregnancy scare, but it turns out to be nothing serious. Jordan finds himself wanting to explore his powers more to help his father.
On the other hand, Jonathan wishes to find happiness in simpler things, like getting a driver’s license or getting a girlfriend. In episode one of the season, he briefly introduced the might-be villain of this season. Makers of the show have brought to the fans of the universe another iconic villain, Onomatopoeia.
The adults have moved on n their lives, especially Lana, who has seen significant and much-needed character development this season. Sam and Natalie also look like they are on the right track with their wholesome relationship, which Natalie deserves after losing her home and family.
This season feels grander and larger, with the show makers focusing so much on every aspect and character. The show’s fans are excited about the future of the third season. It will also be difficult for the show to keep track of all the storylines as it continues to introduce so many character arcs.
