The CW Sets Premiere Dates for Season 3 of 'Superman & Lois' and New Drama 'Gotham Knights'

The CW has today announced the premiere dates for the upcoming third season of its original drama series Superman & Lois as well as the series debut of new original drama series Gotham Knights.

Both dramas will debut on Tuesday, March 14 - with the third season premiere of Superman & Lois at 8/7c. and the series premiere of Gotham Knights at 9/8c.

The third season season of Superman & Lois opens weeks after Superman's blowout defeat of Ally Allston, with Clark and Lois now working at the Smallville Gazette together and enjoying small town life. But the Kents' romantic bliss only shines a light on how isolating "the secret" can be, as Chrissy struggles to balance a new love interest and her friendship with Lois. However, Lois' own work-life balance is put to the test when an undercover assignment reveals a deadly foe that promises to change the Kent family forever. Superman would move heaven and earth for his family, but with a villain this merciless, even that might not be enough. Meanwhile, the Kent boys find themselves being pulled in opposite directions as Jordan discovers what a superhero-identity really means and Jonathan searches for purpose beyond the football field. Amid all this upheaval, John Henry is haunted by his doppelgänger's past, leading to dangerous consequences of him and Natalie. Lana Lang and Kyle redefine their family post-separation, while Sarah explores what the future holds for her and Jordan now that she knows the truth about his powers. Having learned the hard way that no one else can be trusted to work with Superman, General Samuel Lane reclaims his post at the Department of Defense, only to face his own conflict in working with his grandson, Jordan.

The drama stars Tyler Hoechlin, Elizabeth Tulloch, Alex Garfin, Michael Bishop, Erik Valdez, Inde Navarrette, Wolé Parks, Taylor Buck, Sofia Hasmik, Dylan Walsh and Emmanuelle Chriqui.

Greg Berlanti and Todd Helbing developed the drama. They executive produce with David Madden, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter, Kristi Korzec and Lee Toland Krieger. Warner Bros. Television, Berlanti Productions and DC Entertainment produce.

In Gotham Knights, Batman is dead, and a powder keg has ignited Gotham City without the Dark Knight to protect it. In the wake of Bruce Wayne's murder, his adopted son Turner Hayes is framed for killing the Caped Crusader, along with the children of some of Batman's enemies: Duela, an unpredictable fighter and skilled thief who was born in Arkham Asylum and abandoned by her father; Harper Row, a streetwise and acerbic engineer who can fix anything; and Harper's brother Cullen Row, a clever transgender teen who is tired of being polite and agreeable. With the charismatic and hard-charging District Attorney Harvey Dent and the GCPD hot on their trail, Turner will rely on allies including his best friend and formidable coder Stephanie Brown, and unlikely Batman sidekick Carrie Kelley. But our Knights will soon learn there is a larger, more nefarious force at work within Gotham City. This team of mismatched fugitives must band together to become its next generation of saviors known as the Gotham Knights.

The drama stars Oscar Morgan, Olivia Rose Keegan, Fallon Smythe, Tyler DiChiara, Anna Lore, Navia Robinson and Misha Collins.

Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams created the drama. Fiveash and Stoteraux executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Leigh London Redman, David Madden and Danny Cannon. Abrams serves as a co-executive producer. Warner Bros. Television and Berlanti Productions produce.
