One of the most frustrating aspects of TV in the US is the fact that shows often take breaks between episodes, either to catch up on filming or to build hype for their return.
The CW’s Superman and Lois has already taken several of these breaks during its opening season and the show looks set to be missing from our screens once again following episode 13’s release.
Unsurprisingly, fans have wasted no time in asking when Superman and Lois will return for episode 14.
Superman and Lois season 1 recap
Season 1 of Superman and Lois flew onto The CW on February 23rd, 2021 and is the newest addition to DC’s Arrowverse.
The series focuses on Clark Kent and Lois Lane but rather than fighting against maniacal supervillains and monsters from distant worlds, the duo’s biggest challenge is raising their two sons, Jonathan and Jordan, who are starting to show signs of inheriting their father’s Kryptonian abilities.
As season 1 has progressed, however, sinister forces have begun to emerge, most notably in the form of Morgan Edge, a self-made mogul and CEO of Edge EnerCorp who is revealed to be Tal-Rho, an evil Kryptonian and Kal-El’s half-brother.
In episode 11, Superman was turned to evil by Tal-Rho but episode 12 and an intervention from Clark’s son Jordan and John Henry Irons managed to save the day… for now.
When is Superman and Lois episode 14 released?
- Episode 14 of Superman and Lois will arrive on August 10th at 9pm ET on The CW.
Sadly, fans will have to wait an agonizing three weeks for the next episode as Superman and Lois is going on a brief hiatus following the release of episode 13.
According to a promo trailer released at the end of episode 13, the next instalment will be titled The Eradicator and sees several tense confrontations throughout, most notably between Superman and the military as well as a teary interaction between Clark and Lois.
Beyond the title, few details have been teased about episode 14 so the upcoming chapter will largely remain a mystery until it’s released.
How many episodes in total?
- Season 1 of Superman & Lois will consist of 15 episodes in total.
The episode total comes courtesy of Screen Rant who reported in May that Superman & Lois has been given two extra episodes on its original 13-episode order.
According to The Futon Critic, season 1 is set to conclude on August 17th, one week before Supergirl returns for the second half of its sixth season on August 24th.
On top of that, Superman & Lois fans will be delighted to know that the series has already been renewed for season 2 by The CW so there are plenty more episodes in store once season 1 does come to an end.
Superman & Lois returns to The CW on August 10th, 2021.
