Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, have just finished mapping out the rest of the season of "Smallville." It sounds like they're going to do a pretty good job if they're already thinking of how to end it; and how they want to make the last episode, "The Best Episode."

"As of Tuesday, we pretty significantly know the rest of the series," Brian Peterson revealed. "That was pretty daunting," Souders added. "We were all sitting in the writers' room, and we looked up at the board, and we had it all mapped out. Everything's now mapped out. We thought, 'Wow. That's it.'"

"Instead of End of Episode, or End of Season, it said End of Series," Brian added.

"I think we are very aware it's a decade of people watching," Kelly Souders said about creating a satisfying finale for longtime viewers. "That's a long time, so not only is there the pressure of wanting to make everybody happy, which is completely impossible, but we keep trying; but also, I think ourselves, the writing staff, the crew, our post - everyone wants it to end with the best episode of Smallville ever. We all want to make sure that it's the best thing that any of us could put together," she said.

"With any show, you want it to end the way you want it to end as a viewer, but then you also want a little surprise," Peterson teased.

When asked about the possibility of a Season 11, Brian Peterson said he was not aware of any plans for a change of heart. "As much as we all don't want it to end, you need the show to go out when the time is right, and it feels like the time is probably right for that, as much as we all will be very sad. That said, you never know. We could be as surprised as anyone else," Brian said.

Regarding the possibility of taking "Smallville" to the big screen, Kelly Souders said that that notion would be "a blast." "We would love to do that, but there are no plans in the works at the moment," Souders said. Sadly, "we don't know of any plans" also is the response regarding a possible spin-off to continue the "Smallville" franchise.


So there you have it. What do you guys think? Should the Smallville continuity end altogether, or should a possible movie/spin-off be considered. Maybe even an 11th season?

She should have just gave a definite no.How are they going to make a Smallville movie when they're making a Superman movie?

kinda sad to hear it from the horses mouth though. *pout* I know it's ready to end..but it's gonna be an end of a era..that's for sure! I'd love a newer version..like Metropolis for eg, but that ain't gonna happen. Tom will move over to Hellcats....OR..go into pre-production for the movie ( I wish)..but no..it's the end. *sniff

R.I.P. Tom Welling's Career. Goodbye, and good riddance.

If Wonder Woman or any other dcu series goes ahead we might see Welling guest as Superman once in a while but that will be it. Welling does not want to get into the suit.

@ ultimarex:

you would think, if you were in charge of casting, that if some guy showed so much disdain for the character that he would go out of his way to not be identified in this role, that they would say "he's probably not the right guy".
The guy wanted it in writing that he'd never have to wear the superman costume.
Why even take the role if you didn't want to play every aspect of the character?

I like smallville and still watch every episode... I just think its a load of crap that (it seems like) the only reason he's not full fledged superman is bc of one guys stubbornness who probly shouldn't have been involved in the first place.

And can he please start to wear the glasses? Everyone in the Daily Planet, the best source for investigative journalism, will recognize him as superman the second they see his face. his look is too distinct. but he would look like an awesome superman


Tom Welling as Superman

I'd like to see them do a spin-off.... they can call it Metropolis...
marvel72 - 10/9/2010, 6:53 AM
yeah,have a spin off show called metropolis where he can fight other unrelated foes.

i.e deadshot,deathstroke & maybe add the joker,black adam & sinestro.

the only spin off show should be supergirl & thats it.

Smallville has developed more then just Superman/Clark Kent so they could go into the direction of a Justice League movie. That wouldn't effect the Superman reboot.

They should do Aquaman like the pilot they had for it a while back, but with the same actor from Smallville that played him. That way, the actor who played Green Arrow can act as his character in a Green Arrow spin-off.

@kalel2034 completely agree we should also see clark in costume in more than one episode of season 10 hopefully
TheReddestHood - 1/29/2011, 6:08 AM
They should have a season 11 about the new Lex Luthor and Clark's first battles as superman. Or like how Suzanne said

as sad as it is to see a series many people love go away Smallville will follow the lead of great TV series like MASH and fly off into the sunset. I like the Idea of a Live action Justice League series.
