Up, up and away ... 'Smallville' wraps its 10-year run with a two-hour series finale event on The CWby jmaloni
The CW will present the series finale of "Smallville" as an epic two-hour television event on Friday, May 13 (8 p.m. ET.)
The story of a young Clark Kent (Tom Welling) and his journey to become "The Man of Steel" has captivated audiences for a decade. This final season, Clark attempts to find a balance between saving the world, which becomes even more difficult as the Vigilante Registration Act separates a nation, and spending time with his new fiancée, Lois Lane (Erica Durance). Whether it's donning glasses as a disguise, changing in a phone booth or learning how to fly, this season has put Clark closer to his destiny than ever before.
Taking on Darkseid and battling the darkest of his demons, this two-hour event will send Clark soaring toward his birthright to secure his place in history as the world's greatest protector.
"Paying homage to 10 seasons is no small task, and wrapping up each character and story arc has been extremely important to everyone involved in the show," said executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders. "We're excited to be able to make the final moments of "Smallville" a television event, as the character we've grown up with makes his legendary transformation."
"Smallville" was developed for television by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar ("Shanghai Noon," "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor"), based on the DC Comics characters. Souders and 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. Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created "Superman".
Please note "Supernatural" will be pre-empted on May 13 but will return with a two-hour season finale on Friday, May 20 (8 p.m. ET.)
