Stunned by the sudden cancellation of "Lois and Clark," the Krypton Club decided to continue the series into a fifth season. Craig Byrne and Matt Combes recruited a team of 15 writers to put together "The Unaired Fifth Season," or "TUFS." These twenty-two stories "aired" on Sunday nights during the 1997/98 television season. Although the stories do fit into a series chronology, they can all be read as stand-alone stories.
