TV Guide has caught up with Smallville producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders and asked them what’s ahead for Clark and his friends in the final season. Here are some highlights.
People will be so thrilled. How is the Darkseid story going to play into the New Year?
Brian Peterson: We’ve purposely kept that at a slow burn because we want to ramp it up in the second half of the season, because it works with the theme of how evil works: It does creep up on you. So it will play pretty significantly in the second half of the season.
What’s up with the suit?
Kelly Souders: Obviously, we all know it’s in the Fortress and he knows it’s there. But we have to say, the rumor that’s out there right now, that he’s going to be wearing it soon, we don’t know where that came from. That is just a rumor. The quest is to earn it back.
Can you give us one tease for what we can look forward to coming up?
Kelly Souders: Wow, that’s a big one. I think Clark and Lois will be evolving, possibly into places people aren’t expecting. And as far as Clark Kent goes, we are going to see some really great moments that bring us back to the Clark Kent we know from the DC universe. There are some great moments coming out of the comics and movies, ones we loved growing up.
