The CW has announced that Superman & Lois will be getting an expanded 90-minute series premiere beginning at 8 PM ET/PT followed by a half-hour special, Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope at 9:30 PM on February 23rd. With Superman & Lois set to dominate that evening's programming schedule, The Flash season premiere has been pushed back a week, and will now air at 9 PM Tuesday, March 2.

Fans of Big Blue and his intrepid partner, Lois, already know what to expect when Superman & Lois debuts, but what of Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope? According to The CW, Superman & Lois: Legacy of Hope will treat fans to sneak previews and interviews with cast members of the new series. It's also expected to feature special guests discussing the legendary Man of Steel.

Below you'll find the official synopsis for Superman & Lois:

Complicating the already daunting job of raising two boys, Clark and Lois must also concern themselves with whether or not their sons Jonathan (Jordan Elsass) and Jordan (Alexander Garfin) could inherit their father’s Kryptonian superpowers as they grow older. Returning to Smallville to handle some Kent family business, Clark and Lois are reacquainted with Lana Lang (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a local loan officer who also happens to be Clark’s first love, and her Fire Chief husband Kyle Cushing (Erik Valdez). The adults aren’t the only ones rediscovering old friendships in Smallville as the Kent sons are reacquainted with Lana and Kyle’s rebellious daughter, Sarah (Inde Navarrette). Of course, there’s never a dull moment in the life of a superhero, especially with Lois’ father, General Samuel Lane (Dylan Walsh) looking for Superman to vanquish a villain or save the day at a moment’s notice. Meanwhile, Superman and Lois’ return to idyllic Smallville is set to be upended when a mysterious stranger (Wolé Parks) enters their lives.

Superman & Lois is written and executive produced by Todd Helbing and executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Geoff Johns.
