    Default Season 10 - Hopes/Fears/Predictions

    “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.

    When we last spoke with Erica Durance, she confirmed her contract through Season 10. Justin Hartley also confirmed he would return and a rep for the series said that Welling will be back. Also, Cassidy Freeman told TVGuide.com that her contract runs three years, meaning she could be included in Season 10. So the big remaining question is: Will Allison Mack sign on for Season 10?

    So with the announcement of season 10, what do you want out of this season?

    Hopes:

    Allison Mack.
    More Justice League.
    Bruce Wayne (seriously, if 10th is going to be a final season, bring him in but don't necessarily do Batman).
    Teri Hatcher (had Dean Cain, we need Teri now).
    More "movie" type episodes such as Absolute Justice.
    No Lana.
    Michael Rosenbaum (I like Lex being gone, but he needs to be retconned badly).
    An overall villain for the season that fits in with Smallville as opposed to just throwing in any powerful villain (like how they misused Doomsday. God knows how bad Darkseid would end up).
    Laura Vandervoort.
    Flight and Tights.

    Fears:
    Final Season.
    Lana will return.
    Allison Mack won't return.
    The use of Darkseid (or similar type of Apocalypse being).

    Predictions:

    I think it's about time that the No Flight/No Tights rule was done away with. I'm not too worried if they decide to hold off on giving him the proper suit (I like his black "red/blue" blur outfit) but it's about time he learns to fly.

    I am not sure whether or not the show will reach season 11, I'd love it to but I think it's also time that we other aspects of the Smallville universe, like a Justice League spinoff or a dedicated two parter that isn't so much Clark, but more Green Arrow, Flash, Cyborg and Canary, plus the Wonder Twins. I think my interest in this is that the chance of a spinoff is done because I'd find it hard to believe that Smallville could go on for 10 season, but a few of the shows characters couldn't have a successful spinoff of their own.

    THR: What about one of your other genre shows, "Smallville," will it stay on Fridays?

    Ostroff: "Smallville" has had a great year creatively and moving to Friday nights; viewers have not only followed it but have endorsed the show creatively. I think it's too early too tell [where it will go], but it's been doing well on Fridays.

    I hope for Allison Mack to stick around and Lex Luthor to return! Maybe see Lana one last time in an episode or two for closure.

    My one hope is that, in the end, Clark finally learns to fly. I want to see him take his final steps towards becoming Superman toward the end of the season.

    To be honest, I don't care if Clark flies or not. I just want to see Tom Welling in the Superman suit in the end.

    Seeing both would be the best though, at least IMO.

    I think someone should be fired if the show ends without him being in the suit. Welling has more than earned it. Playing the character from a high school teen to taking the first steps into the grander Superman mythos. I think that if Chris Reeve had still been with us, he'd want Welling to wear the suit too.

    I heard Welling doesn't want to wear the suit. Which doesn't really bother me.

    For enough money, he'll wear it. He should consider it an honor.

    If he doesn't want to wear it, I am sure he would if the script said he should. I think he would consider it an honour, I just don't believe he wants to wear it for another reason (read further)

    If that is true, I think it may have to do with the fact he's played Clark Kent for 10 years. Why wear the suit other than in the last few seconds of the final episode? Once he wears it, he's no longer the character we've been watching, he becomes Superman and no longer Clark Kent. Once he wears that suit, I'd never want him to take it off and then the show becomes "Lois and Clark" because they'd have to make the show less about Clark and more about giving him reasons to wear the suit.

    I think he will most definately fly this season. Surely an epic battle with Zod in the sky would be a fitting season finale. Personally i dont want him to start wearing the suit. Although, what i think would be a really cool series ending would be clark walking down the street with lois and clarke with that super hearing of his, being alerted to someone in distress and him just ducking down and alleyway and ripping open his shirt to revel the big 'S'......... cue closeup and roll credits along with superman theme.

    Hopes

    - It's the final season of "Smallville".
    - They promote it and write it as the final season. End it properly.
    - MR back as Lex for a couple of eps to do justice to his character as I disliked his send-off and subsequent story line. He is vital to the mythos.
    - Flight if it doesn't happen this season. I can forgo the tights.

    Clark better learn to fly this current season considering
    Spoiler:
    Zod can now fly. If there is a showdown at the end of this season between them, he needs to be on equal footing. Plus him not flying is getting ridiculous. I guess they have their behind the scenes reasons, but enough already.



    Fear

    - Allison Mack won't return.
    - Lana. Clark closed that book (literally and figuratively). Do not reopen it!!



    I really do think that this should be the final season. The older a show gets, the more expensive it becomes. I just don't see them green lighting an 11th season based purely on cost. It may be doing fine in the ratings on Friday night, but they are still not what they used to pull in their old time slot that was taken over by a new, cheaper show that has done great in the ratings for the CW. Plus, imo, they would have to throw a lot of money at TW to lure him back. I just really don't see him coming back.

    So I want a properly written final season because everyone is prepared for it to be the final season. Send the show out with a bang, and 10 is a nice even number. Don't leave it up to chance because I think those chances are fairly slim for a renewal, and then we're left with an unsatisfying end to a great show. They could spin it off into another show. I'd watch it as long as JH as the Green Arrow was in it.
    IMO always implied.

    James from Atlanta: Have you heard if we finally get Lois for all 22 episodes of Smallville season 10?
    Details of Erica Durance's contact for next season are still up in the air, but I have it on good authority that we will "probably" see Lois "more than usual" on Smallville next year.

    Hamilton in Brentwood, Tenn.: Is this Chloe's last season on Smallville?
    All I can tell you is that there is no deal yet for Allison Mack to return to Smallville next year. That could change at any time, but nothing so far...

    I really hope Chloe is around next season. This show wouldn't be the same without her.

    Definitely, she is a part of the Smallville mythos. And IMO, one of its best characters.
