The CW will end Smallville‘s 10-season run on May 13 with a two-hour series finale that “will send Clark soaring towards his birthright to secure his place in history as the world’s greatest protector.”
“Paying homage to 10 seasons is no small task, and wrapping up each character and story arc has been extremely important to everyone involved in the show,” executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders said in a statement released this afternoon. “We’re excited to be able to make the final moments of Smallville a television event, as the character we’ve grown up with makes his legendary transformation.”
Supernatural, which usually follows Smallville at 9 p.m. ET/PT, will be preempted on May 13. However, it will return at 8 p.m. May 20 for a two-hour season finale. (Note that although The CW has yet to greenlight a seventh season for Supernatural, today’s announcement says season finale.)
Smallville airs Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
