If you have been watching Smallville recently then you know how good it has gotten. I've really enjoyed the last few seasons of the show. The ninth season for the CW TV series is gearing up for production. The last we heard was that Callum Blue to play General Zod in the next season. There has been some talk that this ninth season could be Samllville's last, but that might not be the case. According to actor Justin Hartley who plays Oliver Queen A.K.A. Green Arrow, know one knows if this next season will be the last. He tells scifiwire:
"Look, they're so busy right now, they don't know if they're doing one more season or eight more seasons or two more seasons. They have no idea. So we'll see. I've spoken to them a couple weeks ago and had kind of a vague conversation with them about concept and stuff."
I'm happy to hear this news. I think the show still has some life in it, I really want to see it play out a few more seasons with Clark as a full blown Superman. But I have a feeling the show will end once Clark first puts on the famous costume. I can see that being the last shot of the series. As for what role Oliver will play in season nine.
"I know I'm in the episode. I know there's a couple of saves gone awry. I think Oliver might be drinking again, which is always fun to play. So we'll see what happens. I'll leave that up to the brain trust."
Hartley then jokes around about the timeline of the show because thecast has been playing young adults for quite sometime now.
"I don't know, but I've been going to the gym, and I've been doing a lot of moisturizing, so hopefully not too long [after], because I think actually in season nine, I'm actually going to play a little younger than I did in season eight. So we'll see. Maybe we actually go back in time. I'd say I'm playing what, 14 or 15 right now, about, roughly. I don't know, maybe a couple months [have passed]."
Smallville seaon 9 is et to air on September 25 on the CW. It's new time slot is a death sentance slot though... Fridays at 8pm.
