CW press conf: Dawn says this will be promoted as smallville's final season, budget same as S9.
Yes, TW was only SMVL actor/also there to push the extremely watchable HELLCATS.
SMALLVILLE's Tom Welling re wanting Rosenbaum back: "Clark propelled into being Superman, how do you do it without a Lex Luthor?"
SMALLVILLE's Tom Welling on S10: "I'd like to see Clark walk into the DP and see Lana talking to Lois. I wonder what would happen there!"
Fun fact, Smallville fans: TW was among the first to arrive on the CW green carpet, and the very last to finish. Interpret as you will :)
From Eric Goldman - @EricIGN:
Tom Welling has arrived on CW green carpet - but he's oh so far away. Claaaark!
Operation: Talk to Tom Welling a success! later today. loved hearing him talk Granny Goodness
I asked Tom Welling if he's going back to Comic-Con. Wasn't sure yet, but seemed up for it. Said he had fun last summer
Yes he is (both)! RT @MattMtvguy @EricIGN can back me up on this: Tom Welling? Soooooooo nice/personable!!! (And TALL)
"We're paired up together again, and one way or another, we're going to save the world" -Tom Welling on Supernatural airing w/Smallville
Allison Mack no longer regular but back for "multiple episodes" - not sure if exact number decided yet, says Dawn Ostroff
Asked Ostroff if Durance would be in 22 eps. Didn't specifically say, but said with it being final season, expect lot of guests.
[Dawn Ostroff: "I think that this season is going to be a little bit different, because it's the last season, so there's going to be a lot of nostalgia. They'll be a lot of interesting guest cast who are going to come back. We're going to do some surprises."]
Ostroff says they intend to do strong promotion for Smallville's final season - and budget is the same as last season
From Kristin Dos Santos (E!Online's Watch with Kristin) - @KristinDSantos:

Tom Welling told me he hadn't heard Allison Mack is not a regular...says she will be back and definitely a part of final season.

Tom Welling getting mobbed by fans as he leaves CW upfront.
From Carina MacKenzie - @cadlymack:
About to interview Tom Welling. Sooooooooooooo hot in person. I don't know my name right now.
Hellcats cast. When I asked Ashley Tisdale abt working with Tom Welling, she said, "Have you SEEN him??"
Tom Welling says he's "thrilled to be reunited with my friends Jensen and Jared. One way or another, we will save the world."
Ostroff says Alison Mack will be back for "a lot" of episodes next season. "I don't think anyone will feel like she's gone."
Smallville: "The fans want to see this go out in a big way and we intend to give that to them." No budget cuts.
Keep your eye on @Zap2it for video of Tom Welling telling me what his hopes are for Season 10. Hint: It rhymes with "Clark and Sex."
I had a few awkward giggles in there, haha. HIS EYES.
Don't judge me for Hellcats. Tom Welling looked into my eyes & I was convinced. Also ruined for all other men. Might pick up Smallville too.
