Faster-than-a-speeding-bullet, Superman & Lois gets renewed for a 2nd season, after just one episode…

CW CEO Mark Pedowitz said, announcing the renewal Tuesday; “The phenomenal multiplatform debut of Superman & Lois, which delivered for us in a big way on both a linear and streaming basis, is a testament to the creativity, hard work and dedication of the talented people who worked tirelessly in front of and behind the camera, especially in this challenging environment.

The 90-minute opener (which included a half-hour special that followed the premiere) drew 1.75 million viewers, and a 0.37 rating among adults 18-49. And that marked the largest same-day audience for any of The CW’s DC Comics fare since the massive Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover in December 2019.

The CW says it also delivered the largest day-one streaming audience for a new series in its history. Delayed viewing saw the series debut grow to 2.7 million total viewers.
