‘The Flash’ premiere moves to Tuesday, March 2
The CW Network has announced a “Super” Tuesday event on Feb. 23 with the entire night dedicated to its new series “Superman & Lois.” The night of heroics kicks off with an expanded 90-minute series premiere of “Superman & Lois” (8-9:30 p.m. ET/PT), immediately followed by a brand-new special, “Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope” (9:30 p.m.).
“The Flash” season premiere will move one week later, now airing Tuesday, March 2 (8 p.m.), as “Superman & Lois” shifts to its regularly scheduled time period (9 p.m.).
In “Superman & Lois,” after years of facing megalomaniacal supervillains, monsters wreaking havoc on Metropolis, and alien invaders intent on wiping out the human race, the world’s most famous superhero, The Man of Steel – aka Clark Kent (Tyler Hoechlin, “Teen Wolf”) – and comic books’ most famous journalist, Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch, “Grimm”), come face-to-face with one of their greatest challenges ever: dealing with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society.
Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass, “Little Fires Everywhere”) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin, “The Peanuts Movie”) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older.
Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui, “Entourage”), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her fire chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez, “Graceland”). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette, “Wander Darkly”).

Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, Gen. Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh, “Nip/Tuck”) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks, “All American”) enters their lives.
Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, “Superman & Lois” is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing (“The Flash”) and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and Geoff Johns. The series is from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Immediately following the series premiere of “Superman & Lois,” The CW takes fan behind the scenes with the brand-new special, “Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope,” with sneak peeks and interviews from the cast of the new series, plus special guests discussing the legacy of the Man of Steel.
“The Flash” was originally scheduled to premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 23 (8 p.m.), followed by the series premiere of “Superman & Lois” (9 p.m.).
