Here’s a really good grab of the trailer for Smallville‘s 10th and final season, as shown on Sunday at Comic-Con 2010. Looks like a lot of familiar faces are returning for the last hurrah, and you’ll also catch a glimpse of some things you thought you’d never see on Smallville: the red & blue suit, and a character referring to Clark as “Superman.” This is truly the end…
Smallville’s next season is its last
There’s a broad spectrum of news about Smallville today that fans will be both excited and sad to hear.
The CW has just announced that Smallville‘s 10th season — debuting this Fall — will be its last. As a longtime fan, I have mixed feelings about this. Smallville has certainly managed to live longer than anyone thought it could, while maintaining its compulsively watchable quality through all nine seasons thus far. That said, it’s starting to feel kind of ridiculous that ol’ Clark hasn’t become Superman yet. I mean, in the current season, he spends more time in Metropolis than in Smallville itself, working at the Daily Planet alongside Lois Lane, while he moonlights as a costumed hero. Sound familiar? And yet he’s still not wearing the red-and-blue or going by his destined super-name. On the other hand, knowing when their end date is should allow the producers to tie up the series in a satisfying way and bring Clark full circle.
In related news, actress Allison Mack has announced that she won’t be returning as a full time cast member for the final season. Mack’s popular character Chloe Sullivan will be back for an undisclosed number of episodes in the final season, to give the character a proper sendoff, but she won’t be in the opening credits as a regular, leaving series star Tom Welling as the only remaining original cast member still on the show.
Spoiler alert! TV executives revealed that there’s romance a-brewing in the next season of Lois and Clark. Other stuff that fans can look forward to: a Legion of Superheroes episode!
