Smallville producers have been hitting the Internet this week, saying that they’re lobbying the network for another season after this one’s over. It first came out of a Michael Ausiello column at EW.com (after all, what doesn’t these days?), but it’s now been confirmed a few other places. Our own Lucas Siegel put the question of whether a tenth season of the show was a good idea to ‘Rama Readers over on Twitter, to mixed responses.
A lot of people only wanted to see more Smallville if it meant Superman would finally actually appear on the show. “Not unless they allow some ‘tights & flights’,” said a reader who goes by pibdgardel on Twitter. User troyrobbins agreed: “Only if he officially becomes Superman – the whole show is a build up to Supes and we need to see the payoff.”
Meanwhile, hyacinthe718 spoke pretty definitively for the fans who aren’t interested in more seasons of the show, saying “please, please let it f*@!@ end!” RockyShields agreed, adding with a sentiment that echoed a lot of other readers that the show should have ended or changed concepts: “The show should have ended after season five. Or renamed it Metropolis.”
