"Smallville" Season 8 Finale Could Be Series Finale

The Sun Sentinel has published an article regarding the status of shows on The CW. There's only one small paragraph about "Smallville", but the content of which may dismay many fans...

    [The CW's Entertainment President, Dawn] Ostroff declined to definitively say Smallville is over after this season but she indicated this is the direction the CW is leaning. The producers have been told to create a season-ender that could also serve as the series-ender.

While the Producers of "Smallville" would obviously love for the show to go a ninth season, going as far as to try and re-sign the show's stars (such as Tom Welling. See related post: Will Tom Welling return for a 9th season of Smallville?) for an additional season, they are ultimately at the mercy of the network.

There's no doubt we'll be hearing more about this as Season 8's finale draws closer.

***Update - 1/16/09*** also recently spoke to The CW's President of Entertainment, Dawn Ostroff regarding a possible ninth season of "Smallville"...

"We're starting to talk about it. Obviously, we are prepared either way. If the show doesn't go on, we've got a series finale that the writers have been thinking about, but I think we'd all love to see the show come back." Ostroff went on to say, "Creatively, we've got a new team of writers who are running the show and they've done a great job with the series this year. We've gotten great feedback from the fans. It's interesting, because they've even used more female characters this year, which I think has even really helped it blend in more with the rest of the [CW] lineup. So, we've been really pleased with the show and would love to see it back."

The official verdict probably won't come down until the upfronts in May, when the networks unveil their new fall schedules, however E! Online says that the chances of "Smallville" being renewed for a 9th season are "Good, assuming Tom Welling is up for it - the show continues to have admirable ratings and has creatively thrived despite the exit of Kristin Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum."

On behalf of the millions of Lois Lane fans, I'm looking for scoopage. What can you tell us about her part in "Infamous," which is tentatively scheduled to air March 5? P.S. Where are those new Smallville promo shots you said were taken in November? — Becca

MATT: Millions, eh? "Infamous" brings Lois back with a considerable bang when meteor-freak reporter Linda Lake (Tori Spelling) blackmails Clark into doing her bidding, lest she spill his super secret. Nice try, Donna. Clark is no one's bitch, so he decides to give Lois the "exclusive" on his abilities. P.S. Will this whet your whistle? (or see same ED pic above ^^)

Check out Dean Cain's funny appearance in Pitt Stop. You can see the trailer on their site.

Pitt Stop (is a half-hour sitcom) follows the Blue-Collar adventure of one of the most dimwitted Nascar Pit crews of this side of the Mason-Dixon line. Whether they are screwing at their home garage, on the tour bus, or out of the racing circuit. This crew always finds a way to "make it happen" and keep the engine roarin' for reckless bad-boy Floyd Pitt, Jr. - holding is life together, on and off the track.

Dean plays...
