Next Episode of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
A sleek, sexy, Emmy-nominated 1990s take on the enduring superhero, culled from DC Comics, which has spawned numerous successful film and TV versions of him as boy and man. All of which further demonstrated that while Kryptonite can kill the Man of Steel, changing times can't. Here, leads Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher have the looks and the chemistry, and the timeless question (seriously, how can Lois NOT know Clark is Superman?) plays itself out until they find true love.
Arianna Carlin (Emma Samms) Luthor's ex-wife arrives in Metropolis seeking revenge for his death and her targets are Lois and Superman, whom she thinks responsible for it. With the help of Dr. Heller (Earl Boen), a plastic surgeon who worked for Lex and she later kills, she creates a duplicate of Lois. Dr Carlin used her books to get the public to hate Superman and turn against him and make Lex Luthor like a hero. The duplicate does things that Lois would never do, like accusing Superman for killing Lex or throwing a tear gas in the newsroom of Daily Planet, to make everyone believe that Lois got crazy. At the same time, Arianna gets hired by Perry on the Daily Planet as a therapist and pushes everyone to believe even more that Lois is not herself and she needs help. Clark decides to help Lois investigate the truth even though he is not sure if he has to believe her when she says that she is fine. Eventually, they discover the true identity of Arianna as Lex's ex-wife and they reveal the truth but not before Arianna captures Lois and attempts to kill Superman using kryptonite making it look like Lois did it. Lois manages to help Superman and he makes sure that Arianna and the duplicate gets arrested. Dr. Gretchen Kelly (Denise Crosby), who is taking care of Lex's body that was stolen at the end of season one after his death, tells him that Arianna failed but he will always have her.
The nominations for the Kerth Awards are about to be announced and Lois is sure that she will be nominated again since she has been every time for the last three years and won. When Clark gets nominated instead of her, she gets jealous and insecure, something that affects their investigation about a new villain in town who uses sound waves as a weapon. The sound wave puts people to sleep while he is able to rob banks and jewelry stores. Lois and Clark disagree on who the suspect might be, since Lois believes is Lenny Stoke (Michael Des Barres) while Clark believes is Dr. Derek Camden (Scott Colomby). The truth is somewhere in between since Stoke used Camden's knowledge to create the device for the sound waves, a device that can also produce a sound that affects Superman, something that makes it difficult for Superman to stop him. Eventually, Superman stops Stoke and sends him in prison, while Clark wins the Kerth Award. Lois is proud of her partner but she also warns him that the next time he will force her to be his date on a night where he gets awarded she will tear him apart, making both of them laugh.
After an accident on a fair wheel, a worker of a corporation named Stuart Hofferman (Peter Scolari) comes to Lois saying that this was not an accident since he himself had informed about the problem on the wheel but they ignored him. Lois writes the story and does everything she can to protect her source, even after Eric Thorp (Tim Grimm), the man behind the accident, tries to kill her and forces Stuart to say that he was lying. Perry is forced to kill the story while Stuart, who has been hiding at Clark's place, disappears. The disappearance looks like Stuart has been murdered and Lois gets suspended since the murder was a result of Stuart providing her information. Clark helps Lois to restore her reputation and they discover that Stuart is not dead but he staged his death along with his best friend Oliver (Jeff Joseph), so people would leave him alone. They find him and convince him to help them expose the truth. Thorp is arrested and Lois returns to the Daily Planet having restored her reputation.
A "secret admirer" starts sending Lois booby trapped gifts, something that eventually terrifies her when, along with Clark, they discover that behind all these is an ex-con, Kyle Griffin (Bronson Pinchot), who Lois helped send to prison five years earlier. Griffin, who is also known as the Prankster, is now out of jail and is seeking for revenge. Using those pranks, he can terrify Lois while at the same time, he uses them as a distraction to steal a diamond and rob banks. Lois and Clark manage to finally spot him and with the help of Superman, they arrest him sending him back to prison.

Lois and Clark start investigating the case and they discover that a new criminal organization called Intergang, buys property in South Metropolis at very low prices. Superman tries to help but after an encounter with Martin Snell (Bruce Weitz), the lawyer of Intergang, he is unable to do anything because of their threats against everyone he loves. He still finds a way to help when Lois gives him the idea to be in South Metropolis undercover, so Intergang will not know that Superman is there. In the meantime Mayson Drake (Farrah Forke), the prosecuting attorney assigned to the case, shows interest in Clark but she hates Superman. This interest makes Lois jealous of her and tries to keep Clark away from her, especially when Lois discovers that Mayson's ex boss is Bill Church (Peter Boyle), a man who she believes is the leader of Intergang but she has no proof. Eventually, Lois and Clark work with Mayson and they manage to get Snell arrested but the moment he is ready to reveal who is the leader of Intergang, Church blows up the room killing him.

Molly is very different as a person now and she is against everything that has to do with technology. When she is asked about Ryan, she insists that all she knows is that he is dead. In the meantime, a citywide blackout forces the Daily Planet to find a means to publish the paper without the help of modern technology. Lois and Clark discover that Ryan's plan is to high-jack a satellite and blow up an army base. They get to the base where Lois finds Molly tied up in a chair realizing that she was also fooled by Ryan. The two women try to stop the program via the computer but it's impossible to do it.

Hamilton is not able to control the criminals anymore, who try to take over Metropolis, and Capone also forces him to recreate his old gang. Lois and Clark go to a club to find out more about the criminals and during a confrontation there, Clyde shoots Clark who has to fake his death so his Superman identity will not revealed. While everyone mourns the loss of Clark, Clark does not know what to do until he reads Hamilton's research and uses it as an excuse to explain how he is alive again.

Wallace starts calling himself "The Resplendant Man" and starts saving people but he charges them for it. Superman tries to talk to him and explain that charging is not how a super hero works but Wallace refuses to listen, while at the same time tries to hide from Lois how Wallace got his powers because then everyone will want to get those powers. In the meantime, Gretchen kidnaps Wallace's sister (Cindy Williams) (and Lois for following and finding where she is hiding) to force Wallace into helping her get Superman's powers. Superman arrives and even though Kelly gets his powers from Wallace, Superman manages to use the stimulation and return the powers from both, Wallace and Gretchen, to him.
