Lois, now growing into a star investigative journalist, takes aspiring photographer Jimmy Olsen under her wing. All the while, Clark and Lois are falling in love, sharing adventures, taking down bad guys, stumbling over secrets, and discovering what it means to be Superman and Lois Lane.”

Jack Quaid (The Boys) and Alice Lee (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist) will lend the voice to Clark Kent and Lois Lane, respectively.

While Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) serving as executive producer, Jake Wyatt (Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus) and Brendan Clogher (Voltron: Legendary Defender) are on board as co-executive producers and Josie Campbell (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power) as co-producer.
