In the first season of Supergirl, it seemed unlikely that we would ever see the face of Superman on the CW. They only gave us a brief silhouette of the Kryptonian. Suddenly, after Supergirl‘s second season was announced, Tyler Hoechlin had been cast in the role of Kal-El and would make his Arrowverse debut. From then on, he’d only make brief appearances here and there. His character would only have larger roles in the various crossovers. That all changed when it got announced that Hoechlin was receiving a series titled Superman and Lois.
The journey isn’t stopping there, as the series has been renewed for a second season following its monumental premiere last week. The series premiere delivered the largest day-one streaming audience for a new series on the CW. It also racked up 1.7 million viewers during its initial broadcast. Of course, the news got instantly shared on the official Twitter account:
