"Smallville' is coming to end next season
It seems after if "Smallville" has been on a deathwatch for years, but The CW is now confirming that the 10th season of "Smallville" will be its last.
Series star Tom Welling, also a producer on the netlet's new drama "Hellcats," broke the news to press earlier this week.
"Smallville" premiered in 2001 on what was then The WB. The reliable proto-Superman series made the leap to The CW in 2006 and transitioned from Thursdays to Fridays last year.
The move to Fridays was supposed to kill "Smallville" once and for all, but instead "Smallville" has won its time period in several niche demos and performed steadily enough that The CW moved "Supernatural" to Fridays as a companion for the fall.
