Question: Crazed fans like myself desperately need an update on Smallville’s renewal. How’s it looking? Any idea what the hold-up is? —Ryan
Ausiello: It’s looking really, really good. And the hold-up is due to boring stuff like contracts and money.
From Superman Homepage:
February 25, 2010: "Smallville" Season 10 - Yes or No?
Steve Younis on February 25, 2010 12:01am EST
The Superman Homepage received word that Brian Doherty, who was just this month promoted to svp, national sales, at The CW has revealed that the execs at The CW are excited about a 10th season for "Smallville", wanting to really "go out with a bang".
The word is that they're attempting to close a deal with Michael Rosenbaum to return as Lex Luthor, wanting to sign him up for at least 9 or 10 episodes.
Apparently an announcement will be made one way or the other very soon.
Thanks to @sv_awareness on Twitter for the heads up!
I can't even begin to express how much I want this to be true, but I'm not letting myself get excited. It's just a rumor. But Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum sharing my TV screen again? Clark Kent and Lex Luthor together once more? For a final, glorious, 10th season of Smallville that is planned from the beginning to be the last? OH. MY. GOD.
