Superman & Lois UK release date latest

The frustrating news for DC fans in the UK is that there's currently no confirmed broadcaster for the show yet in the region.

Arrowverse shows are currently spread out amongst UK channels and platforms - most are shown on Sky One, however Batwoman airs on E4 and Black Lightning streams in the UK on Netflix - and we're guessing it won't belong before we find out where the the home of Superman & Lois is in Blighty.

Anyone in the UK from a country where Superman & Lois is already available can follow the VPN route as described above to access their usual streaming service and all their favourite shows.
