Smallville is a CW drama series that follows Clark Kent in his younger years as he comes to grips with his destiny as a super hero. I tried to get into this show when it first premiered but it was way too Dawson’s Creeky for me. I know there are plenty of die-hard Smallville fans out there though, so here’s some info about the new season and the premiere. We’ve also got pictures from the first few episodes in the gallery below (May contain spoilers. View at your own risk!).
The CW states this as the eight season description:
“Forging ahead into its eighth season, this modern retelling of the Superman legend and its classic characters continues to blend realism, action and emotional depth to reveal a new interpretation of the enduring mythology. This season Clark Kent (Tom Welling) moves closer than ever to embracing his calling as the iconic superhero he is destined to become.”
Of the season premiere, The CW’s website says:
“The Justice League, led by the Green Arrow (Justin Hartley), hits the Arctic in search of Clark (Tom Welling), who disappeared after the fortress collapsed. The team immediately has a confrontation with the new CEO of Luthorcorp, Tess Mercer (Cassidy Freeman).
Meanwhile, Chloe (Allison Mack) is being held prisoner by a suspicious group who has discovered she has a new power, and Clark has been stripped of his powers by Jor-El.”
