'Smallville' E.P. Kelly Souders Weighs In on Weddings, Clark's Destiny & the Series Finale

by Laura Prudom, posted Apr 8th 2011 1:00PM
Tom WellingFor 10 years, 'Smallville' has been a mainstay of the ever-evolving WB/CW schedule. Through cast, creative and even network changes, the show has stayed as strong as the iconic Man of Steel at its center, displaying near-Kryptonian resilience as lesser series bowed out around it.

But after a decade of watching mild-mannered alien-turned-farm boy-turned-reporter Clark Kent (Tom Welling) trying to change the world from his diminutive hometown, we've finally reached the home stretch. Superman casts a long shadow, and when the show returns from its final hiatus on April 15, we'll see Clark embrace his destiny like never before.

AOL TV caught up with 'Smallville' executive producer Kelly Souders who, along with producing partner Brian Peterson, is ushering in the end of a 'Super' era. We discussed the long-awaited return of Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), what's in store for the show's most enduring couples and what fans can expect from the final episodes.

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Secrets from the 'Smallville' Set: Celebrating 200 Episodes

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 15th 2010 2:35PM
Tom WellingIt's been a long road, watching our mild-mannered Superboy stumbling towards his destiny as the Man of Steel that we all know and love, but after 10 years and 200 episodes, the pop cultural phenomenon known as 'Smallville' is finally reaching its zenith.

Although the last season obviously has its share of bittersweetness for those who have been involved with the project for a almost a decade, the cast and crew couldn't be more excited to share their final chapter with the fans who have brought them this far -- and tonight's episode, 'Homecoming,' is only the first in a series of satisfying payoffs that will eventually close the show in a spectacularly super fashion next May.

Last month, TV Squad and other outlets were invited up to Vancouver to tour the iconic 'Smallville' sets and interview the cast and crew at the show's milestone 200th episode party. See what they had to say about the climax of this beloved series, and get a preview of what you can expect in tonight's record-breaking episode.

Allison Mack Leaving 'Smallville' -- Well, Sort of

by Rich Keller, posted May 20th 2010 2:40PM
Allison Mack, who plays Chloe Sullivan, will not be returning to 'Smallville' as a regular cast member for the show's last seasonWhen 'Smallville' returns to The CW this fall for its 10th and last season, it will be short one of its most important, and well-liked, cast members.

According to the Ausiello Files, Allison Mack, who portrays Clark Kent's best friend Chloe Sullivan, has opted not to return as a series regular for the final season.

Now, before you rend your clothing in a sign of mourning, there is some good news: Though she won't be coming back as a regular cast member, she will appear in several episodes in order to properly tie up her 'Smallville' legacy. While sad that she's leaving the show that was home to her for the last nine years, Mack says she is looking forward to what lies ahead in her life, knowing that she has the strength of a "superhero" as her foundation.

Created solely for the 'Smallville' television series, Allison made her first appearance as Chloe in the show's pilot episode as editor of the school newspaper. She is the show's last original female cast member. No word yet of how many episodes she'll appear in or when they will air next season.

'Smallville' - 'Upgrade' Recap

'Smallville' - 'Upgrade'
(S09E17) Five episodes left in this ninth season, so General Zod needs to start putting together whatever his endgame plan is going to be. Steps were definitely taken toward that this week, but first we got the return of one of Superman's deadliest foes: Metallo.

It's always nice to see Brian Austin Green, and he's actually quite effective in this role. I was a little disappointed in how quickly they were able to re-establish his character in whatever way they needed him for this week, but I'll forgive it because it was so much fun seeing almost everyone else turned on their ears.

Checkmate and The Wall took a break from intimidating everyone and pushing Tess around, which freed Tess up to make an unexpected alliance. Also missing from the fun was Green Arrow, but there was plenty of action without them.

Smallville: Rabid

smallville rabid(S09E03) Who knew the Smallville zombie episode would turn out to be such a bummer? Our heroes did nothing but whine, brood, and talk about their lonely lives while the almost undead were chompin' on people's limbs.

Where were the fun Grindhouse-style action sequences with the good guys firing sawed-off shotguns and revving up chainsaws? Where were the decapitations? And where were the jokes? You'd think a show about Superman fighting zombies would have plenty of jokes.

I understand that every piece of zombie art can't be as fun and clever as Zombieland, or as gloriously gory as 28 Days Later, but I was hoping for something a little more off the wall here.

Smallville: Power

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 30th 2009 3:00AM
Smallville(S08E13) Consider that she's a recurring guest-star, a Lana-centric episode was something of a surprise. However, since she and Clark have a lot of history, it's also a necessity in order for Clark to move on.

I didn't like this episode. The writing seemed more cliché and the acting more melodramatic than usual (and that's saying a lot), and the pacing of the direction seemed off. I will give Allison Mack the benefit of the doubt because it was her first time as a director (and she's just so darned cute).

The backstory was okay. I was even a little jealous because in the beginning of the show, I always fantasized about torturing the ever-whiny Lana. Okay, maybe not actually torture her, but I still found her annoying. Even worse, Kristen Kreuk's performance in this episode sort of reminded me of early Lana.

Doomsday attacks in Thursday's Cloverfield-esque Smallville

Smallville Sam Witwer DoomsdayToday's stream of Smallville-related news continues. We reported earlier that the show's former producers, Al Gough and Miles Millar, are writing a movie version of the Robotech TV series. Now, it looks like their small screen predecessors are looking to the big screen for inspiration.

Actually, Smallville has never shied away from ripping off borrowing ideas and concepts from movies. Just last week, Chloe (Allison Mack) experienced a memory meltdown right out of Michel Gondry's Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. This Thursday, the show will dip into J.J. Abrams territory with a monster attack shot in Cloverfield POV style. That's monster's name, of course, is Doomsday.

Smallville: Identity

Smallville(S08E07) "He's just a regular guy." - Chloe about Clark

It smells like sweeps time when you get rocking episodes such as "Identity." Episodes filled with action, mythology and storyline developments. And when Smallville is concerned, you have to add the "one step closer for Clark to become Superman" factor to really have a truly rewarding episode. For me, "Identity" displayed all four elements and almost made me forget that Lex left the building.

The cast of Smallville at Comic-Con 2008

Allison Mack will be in Smallville next season after all

by Isabelle Carreau, posted May 15th 2008 10:43AM
Allison MackSmallville fans, you can finally resume breathing. The last few weeks have been a roller coaster due to the fact the two creators left the show, because of the departure of Michael Rosenbaum and the announcement that two new regulars would join and because of contract negotiations for Kristin Kreuk and Allison Mack.

It was confirmed pretty early on that Kreuk would only be a part-timer next season. However, Mack's future with the show was up in the air. Actually, it was even talked that she would not be returning because she couldn't reach an agreement with The CW show. The latter news was supported by the fact her name was omitted earlier this week in the network's Upfront press release.

Will Smallville season eight be sans Chloe as well?

by Brad Trechak, posted May 8th 2008 6:03PM

Allison Mack as Chloe SullivanThey've lost Lex Luthor and Lana Lang as regulars, and now it looks like Chloe Sullivan might also be swept from Season 8 of Smallville. TV Guide reports that Allison Mack, the actress who plays Chloe, is in negotiations for her contract.

This could go either way. The show is suffering from the loss of Michael Rosenbaum and Kristen Kreuk as regulars, which is likely why Mack's people are now trying to negotiate her contract. As the article mentions, without Chloe it becomes Lois and Clark: The Early Years.

Smallville's Chloe to appear in the comics

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Dec 17th 2007 8:07PM
Allison MackWhen Smallville premiered a little over seven years ago, a few fans were unhappy about the addition of Chloe Sullivan, a character that never appeared in any Superman comics, movies, etc. As time went by, fans embraced this Smallville-created character to a point that they were unhappy when rumors of her being written off the show a while back were leaked on the web. Luckily, it never happened and Chloe Sullivan not only stayed on the show, got a job at the Daily Planet but was given a power.

TV Guide reports that DC Comics' Superman will take cue from The CW's show and include Chloe in an upcoming edition of the comic book.

Smallville: Progeny
(S06E18) Wonder Woman on Smallville? Only in our wildest dreams. Still Lynda Carter is about as close to the real thing as we'll probably get. If you ask me, she still looks like a Wonder Woman. Hubba hubba. I kept hoping she'd spin around and then have her tights on and take Lex to town. No such luck.

So, speaking of Lynda Carter ... yes, she's Chloe's mom. Yes, she has meteor powers. Yes, she was in Smallville during the original meteor shower. So why hasn't Chloe found out any of this stuff before? Has she been turning a blind eye where mommy dearest is concerned? Inquiring minds wanna know.
