Smallville Season 10 Update

May 20, 2010

Who’s leaving, who’s staying, and who was that?

First off, CW’s description of the tenth season.

Entering its explosive tenth and final season, SMALLVILLE culminates in the epic rise of the world’s ultimate hero – Superman. Finally working alongside the intrepid Lois Lane at the Daily Planet, Clark Kent had accepted his destiny as the guardian of Metropolis when General Zod arrived, challenging Clark’s authority and power. Just when the romance between Clark and Lois began to bloom, Clark was called into duty by the legendary Justice Society and his own burgeoning league of heroes to fight the gathering dark forces. As season nine drew to a close, Clark sacrificed himself to save the world from Zod. Season ten promises the classic reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois, and brings Clark face-to-face with his destiny as he overcomes his final trials and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time. The series stars Tom Welling as Clark Kent, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, Justin Hartley as Oliver Queen and Cassidy Freeman as Tess Mercer. SMALLVILLE was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”), based on the DC Comics characters. Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson serve as executive producers, along with James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins, Joe Davola and Tom Welling. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

Now as confirmed with the description above, Allison Mack will not be a series regular for this upcoming season. She will how ever be a guest star in a few episodes, to rap up Chloe’s storyline. She confirmed early in the week in an interview with Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly.

Also absent from the cast list is Callum Blue, who protrayed Zod during this past season. This is not that big of a surprise, considering that his storyline was wrapped up in Salvation.

And Smallville will once again be followed by Supernatural starting in the fall.

And finally, Tom Welling has been stating in interview after interview that Season 10 will be the final season for Smallville. Also revealed in interviews, is that the old woman in Hospital in Salvation was, as many speculated, Granny Goodness. So bring on Apokolips.
