Inde Navarrette cast as Sarah Cushing in The CW’s Superman & Lois
Following the recent addition of Wolé Parks, Deadline brings word that up-and-coming actress Inde Navarrette (Wander Darkly) has officially been cast as a series regular for the role of Sarah Cushing in The CW‘s forthcoming new Arrowverse series Superman & Lois. She will next be seen in the upcoming final season of Netflix’s teen drama series 13 Reasons Why which is set to premiere this June.
Navarrette’s Sarah Cusing is the daughter of Lana Lang and Kyle Cushing. Her character is being described as a whip-smart, supercool wild child with some demons in her past who becomes friends with the Kent boys, Jonathan and Jordan.
Superman & Lois will follow the story of Superman, the world’s most famous Super Hero, and Lois Lane, comic books’ most famous journalist as they deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today’s society. In Elseworlds, while Kara was visiting Clark and Lois at the Kent Farm, the couple revealed that Lois was pregnant with their first child. Due to Oliver Queen’s sacrifice in Crisis on Infinite Earths, the Arrowverse’s multiverse had officially restarted as Supergirl’s Earth has now been merged with The Flash and Arrow’s Earth. Clark and Lois’s lives were also affected by the timeline change with their only son Jonathan becoming one-half of twin boys.
Joining Tyler Hoechlin’s Clark Kent/Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch’s Loise Lane are previously announced cast members Jordan Elsass and Alexander Garfin, portraying the roles of Jonathan and Jordan Kent, respectively. The series will also feature Dylan Walsh as General Lane, Emmanuelle Chriqui as Lana Lang-Cushing and Erik Valdez as Kyle Cushing.
Superman & Lois is created and written by The Flash executive producer Todd Helbing. It will be executive produced by DC TV universe creator Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, and Geoff Johns through their Berlanti Productions banner.
The drama was slated to film its pilot episode before it was suspended over the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, it will go straight into series production with 13 episodes slated for release.
