Want to know what's coming up on Smallville this season? Me too, so I rang up Darren Swimmer, one of the series' four new exec producers, to inquire about just that. Click in to find out the good stuff he spilled on Clark's (Tom Welling) intergalactic booty call, the developing appeal of being a superhero and just when Kristin Kreuk's Lana will be walking back into Clark's life...

Nice Kid From Krypton Makes Good: This is the season of Clark's Superization. According to Swimmer, "He's going to be seeking out the trouble, as opposed to reacting to trouble when it happens. One of his main motivations for going to the Daily Planet was to be somewhere where the information comes in." Consider D.P. to be his own personal police band radio. "He's going to be much more on patrol than he was ever in his life—and he's really stepping up in a big way to his destiny." And since his destiny and the Daily Planet are over in the big city, "…

Question: Do you have any new Lois/Clark Smallville scoop? -- Trish
Ausiello: At some point within the first seven episodes, one of them will confess their love for the other. (Hint: The one doing the confessing is not pictured to the left.) Also within that time frame: Jimmy will ****** *** Clark's ******.

Meredith in Houston: Hey, Kristin! You seem to be ignoring Smallville lately. Any juicy scoop to share?
Just had a long, juicy talk with new Smallville executive producer Darren Swimmer, and he told me that there will definitely be a Chloe-Jimmy wedding, but that it does not go according to plan. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a bloody mess.

Laura Vandervoort to Return to Smallville

Thanks to DV30302 for the heads up.


Laura Vandervoort, who played Kara in Season 7 of The CW's Smallville, announced at the Fan Expo in Toronto that she will be featured in a Season 8 episode.

"In October, I'm shooting," Vandervoort said during a panel with Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor for the first seven seasons.

"I only know of one (episode) right now. They've asked me to tie up my storyline."

Vandervoort said a spin-off for her character was talked about at one point. "But it just didn't work out," she said.

Rosenbaum, sporting hair, gave no indications of a return for Lex, but said he misses the series.

"They were like my family up there," Rosenbaum said. "The crew guys are e-mailing the last couple months, 'Dude, are you serious? You're not coming back?'"

Justice League to the rescue

Smallville is back for its eighth season on September 18 with a superpowered opener. With Clark (Tom Welling) still missing after his showdown with Lex in May's season finale, it's up to the Justice League to save the day. Aquaman(Alan Ritchson), Black Canary(Alania Huffman) and Green Arrow(Justin Hartley)track down the Man of Steel at a shady Russian work camp, where Clark is powerless. "The Justice League will never be the same, and Clark Kent will never be the same,"says Exec Producer Todd Slavkin. "The preimere pushes us into areas we've never explored before, mainly Clark's destiny."

Interview with Justin Hartley about Playing Green Arrow during Season 8

Smallville's Justin Hartley: Real Straight Shooter

Originally set to make his splash into comic book television in the role of Arthur Curry in the unaired Aquaman pilot “Mercy Reef,” actor Justin Hartley made his way to The CW's “Smallville,” trading in his swim trunks for a bow and quiver as Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. Hartley appeared in seven episodes over the course of “Smallville” Season Six and returned again in Season Seven. Slowly befriending Clark Kent, Queen was soon to become part of a team of young heroes that bore a striking resemblance to the Justice League. With “Smallville” Season Eight set to begin September 18, Hartley officially joins the regular cast. We caught up with a conspicuously scruffy-looking Justin Hartley to talk about the future " and past -- of Green Arrow.

As any Green Arrow fan knows, Oliver Queen's origin began when the playboy became stranded on a deserted island where he was forced to learn how to use a bow and arrow to survive. Should fans take his stubbly appearance to be a signal …

Witwer & Freeman Spell Doomsday for “Smallville”

Whether fans realized it or not, last month wasn’t the first time Cassidy Freeman’s face had been seen at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The actor had worked on a film called “Razor Sharp,” which won best Action/Adventure Film at the Comic-Con International Film Festival in 2006. Now Freeman is ready to make her mark on “Smallville,” portraying Tess Mercer, inspired by Miss Teschmacher from the Richard Donner Superman film and Mercy Graves from the Warner Bros. animated series, who will be filling in for Lex Luthor in the wake of actor Michael Rosenbaum’s retiring from the CW series.

Joining Freeman this season is Sam Witwer (“The Mist,” “Battlestar Galactica”) who will bring Doomsday to “Smallville,” literally, with the introduction of Davis Bloome, a paramedic who is destined to one day murder Kal-El. Having steeped himself in the mythology of not just two popular genre shows, Witwer is about to become part of the Star Wars universe, portraying Darth Vader's secret apprent…

Reinventing Smallvile with Soulder & Peterson

Source: CBR
For the past seven seasons, the team of Al Gough and Miles Millar has been the guiding force behind “Smallville,” the show they created, based on the Superman characters of DC Comics. At the end of last season they, along with actors Michael Rosenbaum and Kristin Kreuk, left the show to pursue other endeavors. Stepping into the role of showrunners for the latest and possibly final season of “Smallville” will be four familiar faces to fans of the show: Kelly Souder, Todd Slavkin, Darren Swimmer, and Brian Peterson. Between the foursome, they’ve written over one hundred episodes and have been part of the “Smallville” family since season two. CBR News caught up with the entire team to talk about life in Metropolis and what the future holds for mild mannered Clark Kent, starting with h Kelly Souder and Brian Peterson. Tomorrow we will be concluding our weeklong focus on “Smallville” with producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer.

Latest from TV Guide

The CW's Smallville has landed the second half of its upcoming villainous one-two punch. Charlotte Sullivan, who recently starred in the Canadian series/SOAPnet import MVP, is coming on board as Maxima, has learned exclusively, and will first appear in the new season's fourth episode.

The arrival of Maxima gives Smallville two new toughies to deal with, coupled with Sam Witwer's imminent introduction as Davis Bloom aka Doomsday.

Who/what/from where is Maxima? According to Wiki/Superman canon, she's the oldest child of the royal family of the planet Almerac. (Random anagram alert: Caramel!) Her purpose on Earth is to find a suitable mate — which more than explains why she finds herself in a liplock with not one, but two Smallville gents not long after her arrival!

Maxima and Superman are genetically compatible, meaning she can give him what no Earth woman (save for Kate Bosworth?) can — children. Her powers historically have included mind control, strength, enh…

Question: Remember Smallville? You haven't mentioned it in weeks. Give us something. -- Rob
Ausiello: Lex's possibly evil stand-in Tess has a connection to someone in Smallville. Hint: He's green and ripped and runs around with an arrow. Was that too easy?

Question: I would love to know more about the Chloe-Davis/Doomsday relationship on Smallville. -- Mab
Ausiello: Clark and Chloe find themselves on opposing sides when a serial killer starts wreaking havoc on Metroplis in this season's sixth episode. Clark suspects Davis/Doomsday is the culprit, but Chloe's having none of it. Strengthening Clark's resolve: D/D just so happens to blackout whenever there's a new murder.

Allison Mack Carries the Torch for Chloe Sullivan

Chloe Sullivan has come a long way from her days as a reporter at Smallville High's student newspaper, The Torch. In the past six years she has dealt with more freaks then you can shake a stick at, earned and subsequently lost a column at The Daily Planet, discovered Clark Kent's secret identity, tussled with the Luthors, and found out she had superpowers of her own. It seems Chloe my have found love as well, as the most recent season of “Smallville” ended with the-man-who-would-be-Superman’s own pal Jimmy Olsen asking her to marry him, just before she was arrested by government officials.

The actress who has played Chloe Sullivan, Allison Mack, has come a long way as well. Acting for over twenty years, Mack is going to take the leap behind the camera this season and direct an episode of the hit CW series. CBR News got the chance to talk with Mack at last month's San Diego Comic-Con about the brand new season of “Smallville,” which begins in September.

Justin Hartley Interview

Latest from TV Guide - Lois and Clark

This season on the CW's Smallville, Clark will go to work at the "Daily Planet," where he'll bump desks with Lois Lane. The predestined set-up understandably has some fans already lobbying for a lip-lock.

Well, there's one coming.

Sources whisper to me that in this season's fifth episode, titled "Committed," Clark and Lois will be "forced" to make like lovebirds as they investigate some strange goings-on involving a crazy guy and a Moment of Truth-esque lie detector "game." It is in the course of this bit of harrowing, shoe-leather reporting that the "Daily" duo find themselves engaged in a smooch.

How real is their clinch? You'll have to wait and see and fiercely debate decide for yourselves. After all, let's not forget that these two have macked on each other before — namely, once when Lo mistook CK for the Green Arrow, and again when she was under the influence of that drugged lipstick.

But perhaps the third time…

NEW TVGuide Interviews from Comic Con

In the wake of the exits of Al Gough and Miles Millar, the CW's Smallville now has four show runners — and Erin Fox spoke to them all at Comic-Con. In this first video, Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer offer up, among other juicy sound bites, this take on Clark and Lois, who soon will be rubbing notepads at the "Daily Planet": "We've played Clark and Lois as brothers and sister... but this season, things change. [Working together] they can't deny that there are feelings there. The romantic banter, à la Moonlighting... the fans are going to love it."

But will said banter necessarily lead to the boudoir? Look for that answer at the 2:45 mark.

Then, in this video with Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, there is the promise of this season getting closer than ever to the Superman mythology. We also get confirmation that Lana will resurface "at the worst possible moment for Clark's personal life." As for Chloe, t…

Smallville at Comic-Con: Lois and Clark to Get Closer!

Smallville fans, rejoice! Following the show's Comic-Con panel, executive producers told's own Erin Fox that Lois and Clark's relationship is going to take a new direction this season. "Lois and Clark will be working side by side at The Daily Planet, and Lois will start to see Clark in a different way," they said. "She's surprised to see him in a suit, all grown up and handsome. It's no longer going to be played like a brother-sister relationship." (Video of the interview is coming soon!)

That huge news aside, the panel has to have been one of the single best hours of the four-day Comic-Con extravaganza. With a jocular cast and recurring jokes with the audience, the laughter was non-stop — and so were the spoilers. Here are the highlights:

• As reported previously, Season 8 is all about Clark's destiny as Superman. He joins the "Daily Planet" and uses his new gig as a way to find people in need. He also starts to realize …

Smallville’s Arrow On Point

Justin Hartley, who plays Oliver Queen (aka Green Arrow) on The CW’s Smallville, told SCI FI Wire he’s thrilled to be a regular cast member for the show’s upcoming eighth season and offered a few spoilers about his relationship with Clark (Tom Welling).

“I was excited,” Hartley said about his permanent status during an interview at Comic-Con International in San Diego over the weekend. “I had actually just shot a pilot with [fellow regular] Cassidy [Freeman], and they didn’t pick it up. I think it was a day or two later that I got the call from Smallville. We talked a lot, and I love playing the character. I have a lot of faith in the writers that they will write great stuff for me.”

Queen first appeared in the sixth season as a love interest for Lois Lane (Erica Durance). As a master archer who uses his powers for good, Queen also served to spur Clark Kent toward his own destiny of helping humanity. Hartley said that dynamic will continue to evolve this season.
