Smallville Gets Season 10

This just came in a little bit ago, but its official that the CW network has renewed Smallville for a 10th season.  Mike Ausiello broke the news on his site:

The early pickup hardly comes as a surprise given how well the show has been performing in its new Friday timeslot. As The CW points out, the series has “dramatically improved” the network’s performance on the night in all major demo categories, including adults 18-34 (up 67 percent), men 18-34 (up 200 percent), adults 18-49 (up 75 percent), men 18-49 (183 percent), and total viewers (74 percent).

What does this mean for the fan?  Well at least 22 episodes of pre Superman goodness.  But personally, I think there’s a slim chance we might get to see Clark don the red and blue tights next season.  They’ve started to hint at his change to Superman a lot more.  Dr. Fate’s vision of the red cape gives me hope for a flying Superman next season!

    I’m sorry because I know all the Smallville fans are beside themselves with the news, but at some point you just have to ask yourself if another season is just too much. I mean even with stretching the artistic liscense they have passed Clark being a young man coming into his own and leapt straight into the fact that Tom Welling is in his 30s and can barely pull off the young and hopeful look any more. I say let the show go in peace.

      Before season 9 I would have agreed with you. However, this season has given the show a new lease on life. Honestly, they should probably rename it as just about nothing takes place in Smallville anymore.

      The show has morphed from an angsty teen drama to a fairly solid superhero show with some angst tossed in. Personally I say, give it a 10th season and use that to put Clark in the red and blue and let him fly. Smallville has become an AU of existing Superman mythos so let continue to the point he becomes Superman. Ending the series with Superman would be awesome.
