    It's Official: Slavkin & Swimmer Depart For Melrose Place

    As previously rumored, two of Smallville's showrunners, Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer, will be departing the show to helm the CW's new revival of Melrose Place. The news was confirmed today in the Los Angeles Times and in Entertainment Wekk.

    The report also states that a greenlight for more Smallville, under remaining producers Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson, is likely for Fall 2009.

    Stay tuned for more details when and if they become available. Slavkin & Swimmer have been with Smallville ever since Season Two.

    Smallville Spin-Off For 2009-2010?


    Smallville's future as far as a ninth season would go is still "up in the air," with many things riding on the signing of Tom Welling for a ninth year.

    However, we are starting to hear rumors that if Tom does not sign for a Season 9, there might be a Smallville spin-off in its place after all. No ideas yet on casting or concept, or if this is anything more than a rumor, but it's something to think about....

    "Requiem" Ratings!
    Kristin Kreuk's goodbye episode gave Smallville decent ratings for February 5. They were down a little from last week, but considering last week was up against mostly reruns, a loss of only 300,000 viewers isn't too bad.

    Smallville will return with new episodes on March 5.

    Here's the overnight-ratings breakdown for last night (Source: Mediaweek):

    Rank Show Network Rating (in millions of viewers)
    #1 Bones FOX 10.76 N/A
    #2 Ugly Betty ABC 7.27 3.97 (R) (#5)
    #3 The Big Bang Theory (R) (8:00-8:30) CBS 6.17 N/A
    #4 My Name Is Earl (8:00-8:30) NBC 6.16 4.83 (R) (#3)
    #5 How I Met Your Mother (R) (8:30-9:00) CBS 5.95 N/A
    #6 Kath & Kim (8:30-9:00) NBC 4.72 3.29 (R) (#6)
    #7 Smallville The CW 3.88 4.18 (#4)

    "Infamous" Air Date Changed
    The wait for the next episode of Smallville Season 8 will be extended for a week longer than previously expected.

    The CW has moved back the "Infamous" episode by a week, and it is now scheduled to air on March 12, 2009. On March 5, The CW will be showing a repeat of the episode "Legion."

    here is a schedule for the coming weeks (subject to change):

    2/12 #8-6 "Prey"
    2/19 #8-7 "Identity"
    2/26 #8-8 "Bloodline"
    3/5 #8-10 "Legion"
    3/12 #8-15 "Infamous" NEW!
    3/19 #8-16 "Turbulence" NEW!
    3/26 #8-17 "Hex" NEW!
    4/2 #8-18 "Eternal" NEW!
    4/9 & 4/16 Repeats - To Be Announced
    4/23 #8-19 "Stiletto" NEW!
    4/30 #8-20 Title Unknown NEW!
    5/7 #8-21 Title Unknown NEW!
    5/14 #8-22 Season 8 Finale - Title Unknown NEW!

    (And yes, this schedule change does also affect the return of Supernatural - it will also be coming back with new episodes on March 12 wit the episode "Death Takes A Holiday.")

    Yeah, these breaks are freaking ridiculous. There is no excuse for these networks to put us fans through this kind of torture.

    Well I actually really hope Smallville gets renewed. I stopped watching a little way into season 6 I think. I just got bored of it. But I recently watched all of season 7 (which was ok) and all of season 8 so far, and I think season 8 has been the best. Clark, as a character, is just so much more fun to watch when Lana is not around. He's a much more confident character with a season of humour. I missed that from the last couple of episodes.

    Also I think they should stop bringing in new characters just for the sake of it. In season 7 they bought in Kara, who was an interesting character, but in terms of the main plot she didn't really need to be there. Or at least for more than a few episodes. They seemed to like bringing in new people just to give them pointless side stories with little effect on the main arc, which annoyed me greatly. Luckily this season all the characters are more closely tied together and the story flows better. But I think in the last few seasons they wrote themselves into a corner. Since Lex and Clark were no longer friends, it makes little sense that they would have much contact, so they were stuck with two completely seperate stories which they could only tie together for a couple of episodes. I loves Michael Rosenbaum as Lex, but him leaving was actually really good for the show, as it gave the writers a chance to focus more on Clark's journey, and I like how they've had him as a hidden antagonist behind the scenes.

    That's quite a long rant. I've had nowhere to share my Smallville thoughts with before.

    SEASON 9 CONFIRMED

    In the clearest sign yet that The CW will live to fight another season, the network has given early renewals to a half-dozen existing series, including Superman drama “Smallville.”

    In the case of “Smallville,” producer Warner Bros. Television had been negotiating with series star Tom Welling to return. The CW’s renewal indicates the studio was successful in those conversations.

    Alaina Huffman & Elyse Levesque Join SGU

    As many of you have heard by now Smallville alumni Huffman & Elyse have joined the cast of SGU. Levesque stars as Chloe Armstrong, the daughter and aide of a U.S. senator, while Huffman portrays Master Sgt. Tamara Johansen, the strong-willed field medic saw the Air Force as the best option.

    So with Huffman signed up to SGU and Smallville renewed for season 9, dose that mean there will be no more Black Canary in Smallvilles future??

    Question: We know that Tom Welling will be returning for Smallville's ninth season, but what about the rest of the cast? --Bill

    Ausiello: My Small mole assures me that all principal cast members are on board for next season, with one possible exception: The dude who plays Doomsday. (I'm blanking on his name and I'm too lazy to look it up.)

    "Smallville" Season 10 Possible??

    On the back of yesterday's announcement that The CW has renewed "Smallville" for a 9th season, the Superman Homepage did some digging to find out just who will be returning in Season 9.
    A source well positioned to know about these things told the Superman Homepage that at this point in a TV series Warner Bros. requires main cast members to sign a 2 year contract. Therefore Allison Mack (Chloe Sullivan), Aaron Ashmore (Jimmy Olsen) and Erica Durance (Lois Lane) were all signed on for a possible 9th season when they negotiated their contracts at the beginning of Season 8.

    So, with Tom Welling's original contract having been for 8 seasons, his new contract (signed for season 9) would most likely also be a 2 year deal, meaning there could potentially be a season 10!

    Cool. I still think this show has a lot of new life. The new showrunners don't seem afraid of moving the story forwards, so it's more of a parallel universe to the first movie/lois and clark. To me, the old showrunners refused to use the premises full potential, insisting it stay focused as a teen drama which just happens to have clark kent in it. The new ones don't mind making it more of a comic book adaptation of clarks life.

    This show definitely has a lot of life left in it. I really like the direction it has taken this season.

    Smallville Producers Say "NO!" to Batman & Wonder Woman Appearances


    Sadly for any one who had hope that some day Bruce Wayne or Wonder Woman would appear on the show... enough hoping, we got confirmation here that it will never happen on SMALLVILLE.

    SMALLVILLE's co-creator Alfred Gough says the writers and producers were refused permission to feature Batman and Wonder Woman in the hit TV series.

    The show centres on the early years of Clark Kent, before he donned the Superman costume, with Tom Welling in the lead role.

    Gough, who left the series last year, spoke to Smallville magazine about his time on the show and said the key to its success was "the enduring power of Superman."

    Asked which characters had been ruled off-limits, Gough said: "Just Batman and Wonder Woman. Those were really it. We used every character from a former Superman series or movie we wanted to."

    He told the magazine: "We earned the right to incorporate a lot more of the DC mythology, which really lit a fire under the show. We introduced the future Justice League, Brainiac, Bizarro, the Fortress and Lois Lane. Suddenly we earned the right to use these toys from the DC toy box to great effect."

    The show has also featured comicbook characters Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Black Canary, Green Arrow, Cyborg and a junior version of The Flash. Guest appearances were made by actors from former Superman movies and series, including Dean Cain, Marc McLure, Helen Slater, Christopher Reeve, Terence Stamp and Margot Kidder.

    The Show Also brought in 3 Legion of Super-Heros, feat. Lightning Lad, Cosmic Boy and Saturn Girl.
    Hopefully the show will introduce more Characters from the Legion in the upcoming Season 9, which will air in the fall of 09'.

    Well People I guess this is as good as it gets, with these Justice League Characters and Legion Characters. No Bruce Wayne coming into town on business, and no Wonder Woman Saving the day...

    Shame they don't give a reason. I guess it's because Batman is doing well off on his own at the moment, and maybe that Wonder Woman's backstory is a little silly even for Smallville standards.
