A whole host of familiar faces will be popping up in the upcoming tenth and final season of “Smallville”. MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD.
Allison Mack has confirmed she will reprise her role as Chloe Sullivan for five new episodes reports Digital Spy.
The actress wasn’t planning to return, but has done so for the fans and promised her episodes will wrap up the character’s arc in a way that will satisfy viewers.
Laura Vandervoort confirms that her character of Kara will be donning the Supergirl outfit in her one-off episode appearance this season. She will also don the character’s alter ego disguise Linda Lee Danvers after her powers are exposed to the world and she becomes famous for them.
John Glover will reprise his Lionel Luthor role in at least two episodes of the season to air in November reports EW. The appearance comes despite the character’s death in the seventh season, but isn’t the only dead face appearing we’ve previously reported that Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) will appear in at least two episodes.
Michael Ironside and Peyton List will reprise their roles of Lois Lane’s father and sister respectively. Michael Shanks and James Marsters will return as Hawkman and Brainiac respectively,
Newcomers this year include Sahar Biniaz and Bradley Stryker as Hawkgirl and Deadshot respectively, Steve Byers and Michael Daingerfield as Darkseid’s minions Desaad and Gordon Godfrey. The primary antagonist, Darkseid, has yet to be cast.
Finally it was confirmed a few weeks ago that the door is open for Michael Rosenbaum to return as Lex Luthor, but it’s unsure as yet whether the actor will return as discussions are still ongoing. If he does, he’ll likely appear in the final few episodes of the season.
