We have learned that The CW’s ‘Superman & Lois’ pilot is eyeing to begin filming in March 2020 in Vancouver.
The series will be written by Todd Helbing who has previously worked as the showrunner on ‘The Flash’ series before departing following Season 5, allowing Eric Wallace to take the reigns of the series. The series will be executive produced by Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter through their production company Berlanti Productions, Geoff Johns will also executive produce.
Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch will reprise their respective roles as Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane, Hoechlin first appeared as Superman in the first episode of ‘Supergirl’ Season 2 and Tulloch first appeared as Lois Lane in last years’ crossover ‘Elseworlds’. Both will also reprise their respective roles in a large capacity in the upcoming ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ crossover where they will be joined by their newly born child.
The series’ logline revolves around Superman and Lois Lane as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. More details are scarce at this point but one source is hinted that Clark and Lois’ child will somehow be aged up following the crossover however, it remains to be seen if that will be true in the pilot or not.

The event will span over the course of 5 hours with one episode from each show including Batwoman, Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.
