I really thought that moving CW’s number one show, Smallville, to make room for a vampire drama would be the death knell for Tom Welling and company. I wasn’t the only one! Plenty of other comic and TV sites were certain the CE exces were just trying to kill the show by moving it a Friday night time slot. Sure it would rule Friday night, but odds of it making enough coin to support it’s large special effects budget were unlikely.
It seems that I stand corrected.
According to multiple sources (AICN, EW, Newsarama) The CW has locked in a 10th season of Smallville. Reports state that Tom Welling, who turns 33 next month, has already signed for next season. Other mainstays like Alison Mack are still up in the air.
