    The show was canceled following a lawsuit filed by Warner Brothers (the company that owned the Superman "family" of characters) against the Salkinds who had leased the rights in the early 1970s and made the "Superman"(Christopher Reeves) film series. The Salkinds produced the first 3 films, and sold the rights to "Cannon/Golan Globus Production" who released "Superman IV." WB claimed that they had first shot at making a series (the show was distributed through Viacom). The case was settled and the rights officially reverted to WB and the show has not been rerun in North America since, although a DVD release of the first season did occur in 2006.
