Superman and Lois season 2 will premiere, following the success of the first series, which is currently being shown in the UK on BBC.
The emotional stakes of Lois, Clark, Jonathan and Jordan’s home lives have been raised, while the big Superman-focused action scenes are some of the most breathtaking locations on TV. And from the looks of things, we can assume they will get even bigger.
Inspired by the DC comic books, the series follows Clark Kent (Superman) and Lois Lane, who live with their two sons. It deals with surprisingly everyday problems for Superman, mainly being a good father and husband.
Speaking about Superman and Lois season 1, star Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Clark, states: “There are a lot of things that people are dealing with right now, so it’s relatable to see Superman going through those same problems and several issues that can’t be solved with x-ray vision. It doesn’t matter that you can fly. Clark is very satisfied with the role of Superman. But as a dad, he’s still attempting to figure it out every day.”
Season 2 will pick up where we left off, and there are quite a few surprises in store! Here’s all that we know so far about the new season.

Superman and Lois Season 2 Trailer
The dramatic new season 2 trailer gives us a better look at what to expect from Superman and Lois in the Kent family with several breathtaking scenes and action cuts. Lois tells her husband, Clark, that things haven’t been okay for months and that she’s been accusing her husband of each of those happenings. With Lois withdrawing from her emotions and not talking about feelings properly, it’s causing even more problems for the family, who also have to contend with Natalie’s arrival and deal with the new issues that will arise because of her actions.
On top of this, Clark is hesitant to join Lieutenant Mitch Anderson, which sets up some conflict between those two.
We certainly can’t wait to catch a glimpse of the Kent family and be a part of Superman’s adventures as he tackles the problems he faces this year.
