The First Season of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman aired from 1993-1994

This was the season that started it all. It became very famous to old and new Superman fans alike and made the cast, especially Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher receive critical praise for their performances.

Lane Smith was also huge success, breathing life and humour into the Daily Planet's editor-in-chief Perry White. John Shea also received positive reviews for his portrayal of Lex Luthor. Michael Landes' modern-day portrayal of Jimmy Olsen gained a cult following, as did Tracy Scoggins' comedic portrayal of Cat Grant, at the time a recent addition to the Superman mythos.

Lex Luthor's death in the season finale occurred after disagreements between Shea and the producers over the actor's strenuous commute between New York and Los Angeles. No longer a regular cast member, he reappeared sporadically; once in Season Two, twice in Season Three, and once in Season Four.
