It is official, Smallville will return to the CW for its 10th season! And maybe, just maybe we’ll be seeing Clark wear the familiar red and blue costume that is beloved by millions. Here is an official press release from the network:
“SMALLVILLE” TO RETURN FOR A TENTH SEASON ON THE CW
March 4, 2010 ( Burbank , California ) ─ The CW Network has announced that its hit series “Smallville” will return in the fall of 2010 for a momentous tenth season.
“Smallville,” a modern retelling of the Superman legend, stars Tom Welling as Clark Kent . The series moved to Friday nights this season, where it currently ranks as network television’s #1 show in its time period among men 18-34 and men 18-49. Additionally, “Smallville” has dramatically improved The CW’s ratings performance in its Friday 8:00-9:00p.m.time period by 67% among adults 18-34 (1.5/6), 200% in men 18-34 (1.8/7), 75% in adults 18-49 (1.4/5), 183% in men 18-49 (1.7/6) and 74% in total viewers (3.12million).
“Smallville” joins the five previously announced series – “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “90210,” “Supernatural” and “ America ’s Next Top Model” – which will all return for another season on The CW.
“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 and Joe Davola. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
The show has really begun to utilize its DC Comics roots and I hope that continues into the new season. I’d love to see more of the JSA, the L.E.G.I.O.N., Impulse, Cyborg, etc and I hope they continue using real comic villains, how cool Metallo earlier in the season? And who doesn’t love Zod?
Are you excited about Smallville getting a new season? Or did you give up on the show a long time ago?
