"Smallville" Premiere Stills Show Returning Cast Member (SPOILERS)
MILD SPOILERS ahead! Proceed with caution! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
SMALLVILLE fans rejoiced when they heard that John Schneider would be making a return appearance as the beloved Jonathan Kent during the show’s final season. Now, new stills from the CW show with Clark (Tom Welling) at the Kent farm in the Season 10 premiere, entitled “Lazarus”.
Amid what many SMALLVILLE fans have considered a low-key and disappointing marketing campaign for the series’ farewell season, these photos show that the CW hasn’t completely forgotten about the longest-running Superman TV show in the character’s 72-year history. It is odd to note, however, that while the network has been compiling and airing season premiere trailers for most of its other flagship series (VAMPIRE DIARIES, SUPERNATURAL, GOSSIP GIRL), SMALLVILLE fans only have cell-phone-quality YouTube videos of the sizzle reel shown during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic Con in July. Perhaps these shots indicate the network’s desire to get behind the show which kept them afloat during financially turbulent times. In any case, enjoy!
