Smallville Back for a 10th Season!


After numerous shows having been renewed in the last month, fans were left in suspense as to whether or not Smallville would finally come to an end. When the list of shows that the CW picked up for the Fall 2010 came out, Smallville was not on the list. Today the CW Blog has announced that the cast and crew of Smallville will be back for yet another season. I for one am glad.

Here is the official release:

"Smallville" 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, 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.
 
Most of the promotional images released by the CW are terrible photoshops. But the image above is probably the nicest one I've found online so far.

this season has been really great, so let's see if they can keep it up!

who knows, with plenty of other CW shows inevitably on the way to cancellation (*cough* OTH *cough*), Smallville might even dig its way out of the graveyard that is the Friday night timeslot.
