Soaring into its 10th and final season, “Smallville” culminates in the epic rise of the world’s ultimate hero – Superman. Working alongside the intrepid Lois Lane (Erica Durance) at the Daily Planet, Clark Kent (Tom Welling) 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. Now, the final season promises the classic reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois – and brings Clark face to face with destiny as he overcomes his final trials and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time.

The series, based upon DC Comics characters, is from Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink in association with Warner Bros. Television. “Smallville” is executive produced by Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson, James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins, Joe Davola and Tom Welling, and was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
