Superman and Lois premiere info

The Superman and Lois series premiere is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET today (Tuesday, February 23). It's on The CW. 

Man of Steel? More like Dad of Steel! It's time to watch Superman and Lois on The CW and online -- and don't worry, you don't even need cable. Superman and Lois is the latest offshoot of The CW's DC universe, following Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl. 

Superman and Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, respectively, as the iconic comic characters. They originated the roles on Supergirl and also appeared in crossover events with The Flash and Batwoman.

In Superman and Lois, the couple has battled supervillains, fended off alien invaders and defeated monsters. Now, Clark Kent and Lois Lane are facing their greatest challenge ever: being working parents to two teen boys in today's society. Not only that, they are dealing with the possibility that Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin) might inherit their father's Kryptonian superpowers. 

When the family returns to Smallville to handle some family business, they run into Clark's old flame Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui), who is now a loan officer, and her husband, Fire Chief Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez). As the adults become reacquainted, the Kent boys meet Lana and Kyle's rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette). Meanwhile, Lois' dad, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh), is still relying on Superman to save the day now and again. 

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch Superman and Lois. Plus, check out the trailer below:

How to watch Superman and Lois anywhere, with a VPN

How to watch Superman and Lois in the UK

Bad news for Brits — since Superman and Lois is a brand-new series, it's not currently scheduled to air on any UK channels. Eventually, it may join Batwoman on E4 or Black Lightning streams on Netflix UK.

How to watch Superman and Lois on Netflix

While The CW hasn't made any announcements, it's safe to guess that Superman and Lois will be released on Netflix in the U.S., like many of the network's other series such as Riverdale. However, that won't be until after the season has finished airing, so no earlier than summer 2021.
