With just a few episodes remaining, the first season of Superman & Lois is winding down, but when the series returns for its second season on The CW in the 2021-2022 television season, it looks like another intrepid reporter will have a bit larger of a role. Sofia Hasmik, who plays Smallville Gazette staffer Chrissy Beppo, has been promoted to series regular for Superman & Lois Season 2 (via Deadline). Hasmik has been recurring throughout Season 1.
In Season 1, viewers first properly meet Chrissy in “Heritage”, the second episode of the series. As she grows more and suspicious of Morgan Edge (Adam Rayner), Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) ends up writing an expose for The Daily Planet. However, Edge interferes and what gets published is a re-written, pro-Edge fluff piece. It pushes Lois to her limit and she subsequently quits The Daily Planet and goes to the Smallville Gazette where Chrissy is editor, reporter, janitor, everything. The two reporters quickly become an investigative force.
Superman & Lois was given an early Season 2 renewal in March of this year, less than a month after its premiere. The Season 1 finale is set for Tuesday, August 17. Hasmik joins current series regulars Tyler Hoechlin (Clark Kent/Superman), Tulloch (Lois Lane), Jordan Elsass (Jonathan Kent), Alex Garfin (Jordan Kent), Erik Valdez (Kyle Cushing), Inde Navarrette (Sarah Cushing), Wole Parks (John Henry Irons), Rayner (Morgan Edge/Tal-Rho), Dylan Walsh (Sam Lane), and Emmanuelle Chriqui (Lana Lang-Cushing).
