Smallville: “Season 10 promises the classic
reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois, and brings
Clark face-to-face with his destiny as he overcomes his final trials
and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time.” (FYI: Cassidy Freeman (Tess) is included in a list of returning series regulars. Hmm…)

respect for the amazingly loyal fans and the place I will always have
in my own heart for Chloe, I’m coming back for several episodes next
season to tie up Chloe’s Smallville legacy properly.  It’s been a life-changing ride,” Mack concludes, “and I look
forward to what lies ahead with the strength of a ‘superhero’ as my

Lastly, it’s now confirmed that Season 10 of Smallville will be the show’s last.  The one confirming was Tom Welling himself…a little early apparently:

The CW was hoping to announce at its upfront presentation Thursday that next season of

to deliver said announcement in person — jumped the gun and blabbed it
to the press last night. 
“Season 10 of Smallville will be the last season,” Welling told last night at an event in Beverly Hills.
