How to watch Superman & Lois online
Superman and Lois is set to follow a slightly different streaming schedule than most other CW DC Comics shows. Shortly after episodes airing, they will be available to watch for free with ads on the CW website and app for US viewers.
However, the number of episodes of the show available to watch online will vary. While older Arrowverse shows only have their five most recent episodes available at a time on the CW website and app, while Superman and Lois airs, all episodes will be available for free to watch on cwtv.com and in the app.
This is not the only way the streaming rights for Superman and Lois will be different from shows like The flash, black lightning (which ends this season) and Legends of TomorrowWhile seasons of those shows head to Netflix eight days after their season finale airs, Superman & Lois isn’t going to Netflix.
Instead, the show will head to HBO Max sometime after the season wraps up on The CW. However, the HBO Max series release date has not been announced and is not listed in the February release date for the streamer. However, the streaming service has plenty for DC fans while they wait Superman and Lois, whereby the streamer receives the so-called ‘Snyder cut’ Justice League in March.
