In an interview with CBR.com, “Superman & Lois” showrunner Todd Helbing gives some extra details regarding what we can expect in Season 2 of the TV series now that the first episode has aired. SPOILERS AHEAD!
As we see at the end of the episode, there’s something lurking deep below Smallville. Is this something comic fans might recognize?
Oh, yeah. Yes, they will.
Season 1 made some major changes to Superman’s mythos. How will Season 2 continue that?
There’s a few ways that we do at the season. One, in particular, I’m really excited about, but it’s just one of the things that we endeavor to do with the show, is Superman has been done a lot, right? So we really want to find a way to make these stories exciting for people that are watching the show, and part of that is to make them feel new and fresh. So we like to take established assumptions, established characters, find new ways to make connections, and reinvent a villain or a hero in a way that just makes it feel like you’re watching a new story.
What is a Season 2 moment or scene you just can’t wait for fans to see?
There’s a bunch. The first one that I’m really, really excited about is in Episode 3.
