It’s hard to believe that SMALLVILLE is coming to an end after 10 seasons on the air, but this Spring, Clark Kent (Tom Welling) will finally grow into the Superman we all know and love. And guiding Clark on his mission since Season 4 (obviously and not so obviously) has been Lois Lane played to perfection by Erica Durance. The timeline for SMALLVILLE has clearly veered from the pre-existing Superman mythology to take some wonderful detours along the way – and this year alone, Clark has already proposed to Lois which has taken the Lois and Clark relationship into new […]Read On »
While speaking at today’s CBS Winter TCA press day in Pasadena, CA, Erica Durance spoke about working on SMALLVILLE this season, when she knows it’s the end. This is what she had to say … “It’s pretty bittersweet,” says Durance who plays Lois Lane. “There’s so much work to do, to look forward to the end, you miss doing justice to the scenes you’re working on. You want to do justice, but there are moments you think, ‘My god, this is the last time I’m going to work with you?’ And I remember doing a scene with Allison Mack and […]Read On »
TCA 2011 Exclusive: LOVE THAT GIRL! star Phil Morris says he’s hopeful Martian Manhunter will return for SMALLVILLE’s final season
While talking about his new sitcom LOVE THAT GIRL! set to debut January 10 on TV One, ASSIGNMENT X caught up with star Phil Morris to chat about the new series as well as his character of John Jones/Martian Manhunter on the CW’s SMALLVILLE.

I’m not an integral part of that show as far as they’re concerned. After […]Read On »
Exclusive Interview: SMALLVILLE producers Brian Wayne Peterson and Kelly Souders talk about Season 10
Who would have guessed that SMALLVILLE would have survived 10 years and two networks to live on as the longest running Superman-inspired series on television. From the inspired storytelling that took a young Clark Kent (Tom Welling) and chronicled his formative years before he became Superman, the series has taken many twists and turns, while also telling its own revisionist history of Kryptonians favorite son. As they get closer to the Season 10 series finale, executive producers Brian Wayne Peterson and Kelly Souders spoke with ASSIGNMENT X in this exclusive interview about where SMALLVILLE is going (without getting too spoilery […]Read On »
At first I thought I was watching another filler episode, one that had no bearing on what actually happens on SMALLVILLE. Parallel universes are the best way for writers to do whatever they want without fear of any real. Why is that? Well, because it doesn’t matter what happens in the other universe as long as there is no crossover.
This may be the last year for Tom Welling playing Clark Kent on The CW’s SMALLVILLE, but he’s already lined up his next gig – as executive producer on the new CW drama HELLCATS about competitive cheerleaders. “I thought it was a great story, had a lot of heart and found it very interesting,” says Welling at this summer’s CW’s TCA press tour. In terms of dividing his time between the two series, he adds, “fortunately, HELLCATS also shoots in Vancouver, ten minutes away from SMALLVILLE.” “It’s a huge benefit,” says Welling. “We have a fantastic crew on both shows […]Read On »
“And now, the final season of SMALLVILLE.” This is how it begins, a solemn reminder that SMALLVILLE will be no more after ten seasons, followed by a whole lot of confusion. Seriously, so much happened in “Lazarus” that it’s kind of hard to know where to begin. Clark (Tom Welling) being given a second chance after having a near death experience only to be told by Jor-El (Terence Stamp) that he is somehow failing in his duties as a hero. Even better, Clark has a full on hallucination when he receives a visit from his deceased father, Jonathon (John Schneider). Oliver (Justin Hartley) being held captive by someone or something. Chloe (Allison Mack) trading herself for his freedom. Lois (Erica Durance) discovering Clark’s secret, being kidnapped by a Lex clone (Mackenzie Gray), then bolting to Africa after Clark saves her. And yes, you read correctly, a Lex clone. Several actually, including a young (and now only surviving) version of Lex, or Alexander as he is known (Jakob Davies), that Tess (Cassidy Freeman) decides to adopt.
