If you love Smallville and can’t bear the thought of the show ending after this current season, you may not have to face the loss of the show just yet. According to EW, even though the show isn’t even at the mid point of its current season, number nine for those keeping score at home, there’s already talk of a season ten — and not just from fans.
“We are really, really pushing for season 10,” executive producer Kelly Souders told EW. “We really hope it happens.” Even with the show moving to the dreaded Friday Night timeslot, ratings haven’t dropped off as much as some had predicted, which is a good indicator of the show’s enduring popularity.
“I think the word still isn’t out there that we’re on Friday nights. So if people keep tuning in and telling their friends about it, I think [a 10th season] is quite likely.” Sounders added. So, knowing this and with a season ten still not a certainty, are the producers currently planning a season, or a series, finale for the end of season nine?
“It’s something that we faced last year, too,” said Sounders in the article. “To try and break two different endings for a season kind of puts you at cross-purposes a little bit. For one, you’ll rev things up, and for another, you’re trying to bring everything to the finish line. But we’re really planning on breaking a season finale and not a series finale.”
