It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the news Smallville fans have been waiting for: The CW has renewed the show for a 10th season!
The early pickup hardly comes as a surprise given how well the show has been performing in its new Friday timeslot. As The CW points out, the series has “dramatically improved” the network’s performance on the night in all major demo categories, including adults 18-34 (up 67 percent), men 18-34 (up 200 percent), adults 18-49 (up 75 percent), men 18-49 (183 percent), and total viewers (74 percent).
There’s no word if season 10 will be the show’s last.
Two weeks ago, The CW extended early renewals to Gossip Girl, 90210, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and America’s Next Top Model. The jury’s still out on One Tree Hill, Melrose Place, and Life Unexpected.
