Dewan, who is set to recur, made her debut as Lucy Lane, Lois Lane’s younger sister, for Supergirl’s debut season back in 2015. Smart and driven, Lucy doesn’t back down to anyone, with a chip on her shoulder stemming from an unresolved childhood trauma.
Superman & Lois stars Tyler Hoechlin as Clark Kent/Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Jordan Elsass as Jonathan Kent, Alexander Garfin as Jordan Kent, Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing, Inde Navarrette as Sarah Cushing, Wolé Parks as The Stranger, Adam Rayner as Morgan Edge with Dylan Walsh as General Samuel Lane and Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang Cushing.
News of Dewan’s return to the CW comes as Supergirl, starring Melissa Benoist, nears the end of its six-season run. The series finale is set to air in November.
Based on the characters from DC created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, Superman & Lois is developed by Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing, who serve as executive producers, with Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns and David Madden. Todd Helbing wrote the teleplay for the first episode, based on a story by Berlanti and Helbing. Lee Toland Krieger executive produced and directed the first episode.
