Smallville: Season 10 Will Be Its Last

Tom Welling as Clark Kent on Smallville Smallville: Season 10 Will Be Its Last

[Update: Be Sure To Check out our Smallville Season 10 Premiere Review!]

After a truly amazing ninth season finale, Smallville fans were hoping to catch a glimpse of the promised 2013 future in which Clark Kent has thrown The Blur costume away and finally become Superman.

Unfortunately, that day will never come as The CW is set announce on Thursday, during their upfront, that Smallville season 10 will also be the series’ last.

Tom Welling, proving that not only is he faster than a speeding bullet, but also The CW’s public relations, revealed the news of Smallville’s final season to Hollywood Life while attending a party celebrating the release of legendary film producer Jerry Weintraub’s new book. Welling said:

“Season 10 of Smallville will be the last season”

While the news is a huge blow to Smallville fans that have invested nine years in the series, keep in mind that there’s still one more season left. With the foreshadowing provided in the season 9 finale, there’s a good chance that the season 10 will not only be its last, but also its best.

We all know that by the end of Smallville, Clark has to not only fly, but also become Superman. Hopefully, with all the “training” required for him to reach those goals, The CW will at least give us a couple episodes with Clark as the legendary Man of Steel, instead of waiting until the final moments of the series finale to have him don his infamous red and blues (but don’t bet on it).

Unfortunately, no matter how much flying Clark does, there will still be one big piece of the Superman puzzle missing: Lex. A couple of months ago, actor Michael Rosenbaum stated that he will not be returning to Smallville. Although, with Smallville coming to an end, maybe his former cast members can coax him into returning – even if it is only for one episode.

…a man can dream, right?

What do you think of Smallville finally ending? What are you expecting out of the final season? Will Clark become Superman? Is there any way Michael Rosenbaum will return to the series?

The tenth and final season of Smallville returns this fall on The CW.

  1. I like watching smallville haven’t missed one episode in the 10 seasons wish it wasn’t over just yet wish they keep making it but whole well I think one tree hill might beat smallville now there r 9 seasons of that want something else to watch that and heartland on Sunday nights.

  2. I am deeply saddened about the end of smallville. It has been the one show that has kept my attention from the start. Maybe the producers can close Smallville and create Metropolis where the story continues. For all the years Tom and the rest of the cast have put in, I thankyou for giving us this show. Tom, please consider coaxing the producers to make Metropolis with you still as Superman. You are always perfect for the role.

    • Well I am deeply sad when heard this long story of a superhero will end in this season… CW, should it ends when the story is going to make the fans crazy

    • I have all 9 seasons & will be buying the 10th of course on blue ray. I have my DVR set to record all of the new episodes. I’m like millions of other viewers who are hooked & have been waiting 10yrs for Tom Welling to become SUPERMAN & when he does there ending the show. If enough fans complain & let the WB know we aren’t ready for it to end then hopefully they will start up Metropolis. At least give us 2-3 seasons of Clark being Superman. This show has the fan base to be the longest running & one of the highest ranking of any show EVER on TV. FANS LET THEM KNOW WE AREN’T READY TO SAY GOODBYE TO TOM WELLING & THE REST OF THE BEST SHOW ON TV. If this is the last season I will never watch another WB show because when we waited this long to see him become the man of steel there ending the show.

Stand up to the WB & let them know we want to see the man of steel for a few more seasons we want to see him fly & be superman for more than a few episodes in the last season.

      • @ mark

        I don’t know about you, as much as i wished the show would go with Tom Welling & everyone, im also hoping he or atleast Brandon Routh will land the role of Superman in the Justice League film when it comes. Mostly id like to see Welling so Erica Durance can be included if they use another Lois Lane for another Superman franchise that follows from Justice League film & its sequels.

    • i feel the same way but i just wish we did not have to wait 10 seasons for him to fly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! . other than that im coooooooooooooooooooooool.

  3. I really wish Michael Rosenbaum comes back as a friend that back stabs superman and back to a friend by end of the season.

  4. I think its a really raw deal for all us fans.Just as its getting interesting,and exciting its over and gone. Its one of the top shows on right now. I wouldn’t be willing to give that kinda run up,would u?

  5. I think we fans are getting a raw deal. We get hooked on this show for years and you drop a bomb like this on us . Bad dog no bisket

  6. michael your stupid you must return to finish the episode dont be full of greed

  7. On Smallville, Lana Lang is back on the last episode! She will be married to Lex Luthor standing right next to him! Konner Kent new Smallville spin off also. This new spin off will take place at Smallville High School! Tom Welling will be in one episode of the Superboy-Konner Kent Show! And Clark gets his new Superman costume at the Fortress! This updated 04-03-2011

    • dude thats stupid. dont post false info. Lana lang isn’t returning. And smallville season 10 is weak a.f. Im disappointed.

      • Dude, yea! You were lied to from The C.W. Network dude! Lana Lang is back to prove this watch the last episode and then get back with me and you will think twice what you said! My friend worked on the set of Smallville in Vancover! And more to come!!!

  8. I give a round of aaplause to smallvile as one of the best tv series i have ever watched. It is also the longest sci-fi series. I have watched the episode since the year 2001 and have enjoyed it completely. Though it’s the end of the series, to me it has been my best. BRAVO!!!!!

    • 7yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy l hate u guys u re lying at each other why

  9. I give a round of applause to smallville as one of the best tv series I have ever watched. It is also the longest sci-fi series. I have watched the episode since the year 2001 and have enjoyed it completely. Though it’s the end of the series, to me it has been my best. BRAVO!!!!!

  10. I said this on a post yesterday, we have not seen the last of Tom Welling playing Superman! He is going to appear in the spin off of Conner Kent! He will play Superman and Conner will be Superboy!

    • lol

  11. This really makes me sad, i have watched Smallville Since day 1. and it ashame that CW is taking it off the air. And Tom Welling Is the Best Clark Kent (Superman) out there. hopefully CW will come to there Sinces and let Smallville stay on the air. Well this is all i have to say,
    but i want to know what everyone else thinks of the CW taking Smallville off the air so keep posting.

  12. i jist started watching smallville in like the last 7 episodes or so and im already hooked. i watched the first episode a couple days ago and i started watching all the episodes on my computer. im not a crier but i know when the series ends i will cry badly.

  13. Remember folks that The C.W. said the last episodes will have a surprise guest? Well I said on this web site that Lana (Kristin) Lang is back! She did what (Michael) Lex Luthor did and did finish the final show! So no one is telling lies. This is why I wonder if I should tell you guys anymore news? The Conner-Clark -Luthor-clone-spin-off! Tom Welling will appear as Clark-Superman in one episode.

    • I think you may have been smoking red kryptonite buddy.

      • I think you need to watch the last episode and then you will have SUPER red face about what you don’t know what your saying BUDDY!!! Because The last Smallville Show will speak for it self, not to you but everyone! Lana and Lex are back and that’s why you should be open minded. Blame The C.W. not me for “not telling you about Lana Lang and Conner Kent- Superboy!”

        • So you are saying that the CW are going to replace Smallville (a story about a young hero with super powers and learning to live with them – and becoming Superman) with another TV show about Superboy (a story about a young hero with super powers and learning to live with them and becoming Superboy).

          Gotcha.

          • We all know about some spin offs before that could happen? Well what happened to the Luthor-Clark-clone? Like what was said before that the new show will be Superboy-Conner-Kent! That will take place at Smallville High School and the Kent farm! Tom Welling will play Superman for the last time in the show as a guest star! No one seems to want Welling to play Superman ever in The Big Screen? Why not? He did a great job. It’s the people at Warner Brothers calling the shots! That’s the thanks Tom Welling gets for making Superman-money-keeping it around for 10 seasons!!! Why fix something that already works? Stay with Tom
            as Superman!

  14. Hey everyone i will be starting a facebook post to petition the Smallville series to at least continue with one more season. It hurts me and I’m sure it also hurts more for others to watch every season and not have Clark finally become the man of steel that we all have been waiting for this is not going to be easy but with your help maybe their will be many to help me before season 10 is over this is a late posting but I’m sure many will put the time in to help join my petition. you can reach me at facebook or search for Smallville Season 11 petition on facebook. thanks for reading this and send this message to those who you think will join the petition. Bye for now

  15. The actors have been doing the show for 10 years so it’s not surprising they’d like to move onto something else.

    What would be cool (but unlikely) is the new Justice League movie coming up in 2013 to feature Smallville characters Clark, Lois, Lex, Oliver, Chloe, etc and introduce other DC heroes into that ‘world’ and make a movie out of it.

    That idea is on the basis of reports that WB aren’t going to use Snyder’s superman and Nolan’s batman for Justice League.

    • @ Rix

      Actually the new Justice League film could use some of the actors but i wouldn’t use them all, mostly one’s who played Oliver, Chloe, etc. And i doubt Michael Rosenbaum would want to play Lex Luthor since we we’re lucky to get him for the finale. Imo, id would only care about Tom Welling & Erica Durance playin Superman/Clark Kent & Lois Lane characters. If Tom Welling doesn’t want the role, i hope they ask Brandon Routh to be in role cause i liked him in Superman Returns & i bet Erica Durance & Brandon Routh could work together just aswell. I read on here or somewhere that after the Justice League film, they will do solo films of Batman,Superman & others within in that film afterwards within that universe. Nolan’s Batman is coming to a end next year & Bale made it clear he won’t make another Batman film without Nolan & Snyder’s Superman reboot will be it’s own thing just aswell. If i knew WB’s address, id be writing letters right now, requesting Tom Welling or Brandon Routh to be Superman in the Justice League film & Erica Durance as Lois Lane of-course.

      • I never want to see Brandon Routh or Kate Bosworth anywhere near anything remotely related to a super hero movie.

        Bryan Singer was the worst thing that has EVER happened to the Superman franchise. EVER.

        I keep trying to forget Superman Returns happened.

        • @ Rix

          Well, i can’t argue with you there about the film or Kate Bosworth. I wished he made X3 instead. Despite how the film was, i did like Routh, i just didn’t like how Singer have Superman have a son mostly. And as much i found Margot Kidder annoying as Lois Lane, I thought Kate Bosworth just didn’t have that character down, not even Frank Langella felt like Perry White to me really. And the film itself looked too much like Donner’s original film instead of return story.

          • it actually makes sense if you watch the richard donner cut of superman II being the fact that superman and lois have sex before he gives up his super powers. where as in the richard lester cut he gives up his powers before lois and him do it.

  16. Here’s my scenario about 10th season: Story remains the same (tess is given to adoption in granny goodness orphanage), but with a little change.
    After Darkseid’s ascension, who takes place in finale, not in 20th episode, Tess is caught by Granny Goodness, and become one of the Female Furies.
    Darkseid’s ascension must take place only when the three vessels of Darkseid make a ritual that is meant to destroy the world.
    Dark forces come to Metropolis and eventually Hell is released.
    Clark becomes a weapon against humanity (darkseid possess him) when sees that all crashin’ down.
    Oliver becomes an ally of Darkseid, and in finale another powerful villain is released from Hell.
    In the next season, JL with LoS saves Clark and Darkseid materialized himself.
    Then Darkseid is sent to Apokolips among with his minions, but a new evil is lurking.
    Finally, in 12th season Lex Luthor becomes president when Clark become Superman.

  17. I’m very upset to hear about the ending of smallvile. All the fans have waited so long for Clark to become superman. And I’m irritated that he has not put on the suit yet. I was hoping to see a few episodes of Clark with the suit on. I really wish they would keep Smallville going. And Tom wellings did an excellent job in Smallville all the fans love him.

  18. I can’t believe that Smallville will have Season 10 as the last season. I’ve been enjoying watching it especially when heroes like aquaman, stargirl, hawkman and others are joining forces in protecting earth. I do hope that the producers of smallville will still make a plan of continuing clark kent story. Many are hoping and waiting for Clark’s or let’s say Superman next move to next chapter.

  19. I can’t wait to see it the smallville season 10 and after smallville season 10 is over I will buy to watch on dvd

  20. I will always be a smallville and superman biggest fan all the time

  21. Sadly this is the end. i was hoping thar smallville will carry on. i wanted to see more then the blur i wanted to see the real man of steal. i hope in one of the new episodes of smallville they show the fight of Darkseid and Orion. and i hope that they show a special episode about the justice league.

  22. When does it start in the U.K? And what channel will it be on? Someone pls tell me as its quality is Smallville

    • you can watch it all on a site called project free tv, ive watched them all. you will enjoy it

    • go to project free tv, you can watch it all on there, and thats the final series

  23. I feel that the way that smallville should end, which I know they wouldn’t be this cool about it.. the way that smallville should end is he fights whom ever he has to, then at the end they jump ten years or so into the future. Lois and clark are sitting at their breakfast table a news report comes on about a disaster somewhere, lois gets up, rips his shirt open revealing the “S” and says one word to him before he flies off…..”go”

  24. So sad!

    I love Smallville. The most amazing show I’ve ever seen and I proper get into it big time!

    Sad that there is no more seasons after this one.

    Maybe a spin off. Not smallville, maybe Metroperlis (Or whatever the name is)

  25. There is going to be a spin off of Smallville called”CONNER KENT” The Luthor-Clark-Clone. That is taking place at The Kent Farm-Smallville High School! Tom Welling is making appearance on the new show for one episode? The old Smallville set on The Kent Farm is still standing insiders tell me?

  26. The final was not good. Tom Welling Never wore the whole Superman suit! He wore the top part only and we saw some cartoon of him flying in the air 500 feet away? It was a rip off!!! The only great part was him flying and the return of Lex Luthor who at the end forgets about Clark being a Superman because of Tess who put some DNA chemical on the side of his face for killing her. Plus Lex becomes the President? If that did’t happen Clark would not be safe as being Superman. When he flew by the plane to safe Lois Lane we saw only a very exstream closeup of him in the uniform that was cut off of the suit from the top up. And when he went to the roof we saw a Superman shirt only!!! No tights no flights remember that one? If Lex Luthor wasn’t in The Final we would have a flop!!!

    • nice way to spoil it for folks

  27. ive just finished watching season 10 and yeah that was the final season and if u wanna watch instead of waiting for it to appear on tv the just go to this address sidereel.com/smallville and im writing this to all who like and want to watch the final season of smallville instead of waiting for it to come out on tv

  28. ive watched the final series and it was great, but you didnt get to see much of him in the superman outfit, only from a distance and only for a few seconds. and lex came back for the final. the last few episodes were very funny. i dont know why they didnt show much of tom in the superman outfit, maybe he didnt think he looked good in it or something. ive watched it from the start and gutted it has come to an end, but as the old saying goes, all good things come to an end.

  29. ic ould tell you all waht happens in the end, but i wouldnt do such a thing lol. you wouldnt want to miss it, trust me its brillant.
