Official description for Smallville:

Entering its explosive tenth and final season, SMALLVILLE culminates in the epic rise of the world’s ultimate hero – Superman. Finally working alongside the intrepid Lois Lane at the Daily Planet, Clark Kent had accepted his destiny as the guardian of Metropolis when General Zod arrived, challenging Clark’s authority and power. Just when the romance between Clark and Lois began to bloom, Clark was called into duty by the legendary Justice Society and his own burgeoning league of heroes to fight the gathering dark forces. As season nine drew to a close, Clark sacrificed himself to save the world from Zod. Season ten 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. The series stars Tom Welling as Clark Kent, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, Justin Hartley as Oliver Queen and Cassidy Freeman as Tess Mercer. SMALLVILLE was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”), based on the DC Comics characters. Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson serve as executive producers, along with James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins, Joe Davola and Tom Welling. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

Please note that Tom Welling is now a full executive producer, and Cassidy Freeman is back as Tess Mercer!

Nooo! I don't want him to stop! He really is unbelievable, isn't he? *sigh*

I seriously can't take my eyes off that picture long enough to read the description. WOWZA. T, how does he get prettier and prettier every single year?!

Also, minimum scruff that doesn't hinder the pretty! :D
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 05:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
He takes my breath away. Even his scruff is perfect! LOL!
goodvibe From: goodvibe Date: May 20th, 2010 05:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Mmm, I want more scruff---


And lookey that - SV and SPN are back together! Now if only I still cared even half as much about the latter as I did till a couple years ago. Oh well.

I'm a big fan of the scruff myself. Yum.

I'm really happy that my shows are back together again. And I know what you mean about Supernatural, but I am curious about what next year will bring for the Winchester boys.

I was so excited when I first found this pic! :) And just look at all the pretties that followed. It was an amazing day for Tom fans!

I'm so happy we are hearing so much about Tom! And that pic is... *gorgeousness overload*

I hope this final season is *really* Clark centered!

The day just got better and better as each new tweet, pic, and interview came in! What a wonderful time to be a Tom fan!

I share your hopes for S10, Carol. *fingers crossed*

Well hello gorgeous!

Interesting that Hellcats got a plum spot after ANTM - even if it has been the kiss of death! And hurray for the reunion of Smallville and Supernatural!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nobody pulls off black on black like Tommy! :)

Do the shows that follow ANTM tend to fail? Hellcats seems to be creating a lot of buzz, mostly due to Ashley Tisdale's fan following, but I have no idea if that will translate into ratings. And I'm happy about Smallville and Supernatural being back together, too!

Did you have anything after the picture because all I saw was the beautiful shot of Tom! I am overloading on all of the Tommy goodness from yesterday and today!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 06:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well, evidently it took me a whole week to recover enough to reply to your comment! ;)

Was that an amazing day or what? The news, pics, and vids just kept on coming. And it all made me adore the man more than ever. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed that he shows up for Comic-Con!

Guh, that picture. ♥

I'm spamming your inbox a bit today. :)
Thanks for compiling and posting all the fantastic news from today.
What a Smallville week! :D
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
So gorgeous! And such a sweetie all day long! He truly gave us a day to remember.

I had fun collecting all the Tommy news and goodies. The event brought us so much more than I ever anticipated. I'm so glad he was there!

How beautiful! I hope we get some UHQ's floating around soon.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 06:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Over a week later, and I'm still basking in the glow! What a glorious day for Tommy fans!

Thanks again for your gorgeous wallie, Deb. I love my new header!

I think my favorite thing about this press release is that it confirms Cassidy's return as a regular. Thanks for posting this and other news from today.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was thrilled to hear that news as well! Let's hope they give her more screen time next year. She's such a talented actress, and I think it was criminal how little they used her this past season.

I am seriously not happy that Supernatural is moving to Fridays. I've got standing plans for a lot of Fridays, so I'll miss watching it live.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: May 29th, 2010 06:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's a drag. I know a lot of hardcore Smallville fans who don't watch live anymore, simply because they can't. The ratings took a shocking hit when the show was moved. I never go out on Fridays, I'm always too tired from my work week, so I'm just glad my shows are together again.
