With the last episode of Superman and Lois airing last week, the show has resolved many unanswered questions, however not satisfying all the fans. The show stars Tyler Hoechlin as Superman and Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane.
Season Finale Totally Slay

While Superman was first introduced in the second season of Supergirl, Lois Lane appeared on the Arrowverse crossover event “Elseworlds” for the first time. The show Superman and Lois first premiered in 2021.

The connection’s out!
At the end of season 2, one of the most controversial revelations was that the universe of Superman and Lois is in a separate universe from that of the Arrowverse. Considering how crossovers are the theme for the last decade, many fans are disappointed.

The possibility of the characters being in the same universe was left unanswered until the end of season 2 when Lois Lane’s Father General Lane indicated Superman being the only hero in their world and further stated:
“he’s the finest of any Earth.”
really hope JusticeU is an arrowverse show and not set on Superman and Lois’s earth. I love S&L but the arrowverse needs to continue after the flash inevitably ends

Not all is lost
Although CW has no problem pumping out new crossover events, so deciding to keep the worlds separate, loses its weight. Having 7 major crossover events and many crossover episodes over the decade, we can still expect to see more and more interaction between the characters in the future.
But on the other end, having a separate universe also allows the show to explore its own stories and more personal plots. A major complaint of the crossovers across the MCU and CW has been the lack of personal plots being explored, resolving stories using fists rather than writing.
Guys, did you not pay attention to the end of Crisis?
EVERYTHING is part of the Arrowverse.
Superman and Lois is still part of the Arrowverse.
It is just on another world.
There is still a multiverse, but we knew this.
We've lost nothing. The show is still good.

Also considering how many productions were negatively affected by the coronavirus, including the Arrowverse, it might benefit the Superman and Lois series to be in its own universe, preventing it from getting bogged down in scheduling issues.
