Series Finale Of ‘Smallville’ Airs Tonight. Farewell, Handsome Tom Welling! [VIDEO]

May 13th, 2011 // 1 Comment

The two-hour season finale of Smallville airs tonight on The CW, as fans mourn the departure of Tom Welling.  Our friends over at E! have given the Superman series a send-off, posting a heartfelt letter from the show’s executive producers, Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson:

We have been lucky. We got to sit with the writers and think about Superman every day. We got to think about what inspires us. Think about why Superman is the most recognizable character in the world. Think about the most avid fans in television and the reason they tune in every week—not only do they want to believe in good, they actually do. Someone once said that you can only truly appreciate in others what you have the potential for in yourself. Superheroes are a reflection of who we want to become. Whatever impact we’ve had on the Superman mythos, it pales compared to the impact the fans of Superman across the globe have had on us.  It’s what makes us believe there’s a more peaceful future out there.  Being reminded of that every week for a decade has been a gift.

The final episode airs tonight at 8pm on The CW.

Check out a preview after the jump and sound off on your favorite Smallville moments from the past ten seasons by heading on over to our Facebook page.  Feel free to collectively gush over shots of Welling doing his grocery shopping last July in Vancouver.  Perhaps he’ll make a cameo in Superman: Man Of Steel? There’s plenty of room for our small screen stud and Henry Cavill.

    I’m going to miss Tom playing the role of Clark Kent. I think they did a good job of ending the series, especially the way they handled Lex returning. I’ll have to say that finale was epic, but I’m kind of disappointed that the series came to an end. This show over all did have some touching and defining moments in the development of Superman. The series finale did look awesome in high quality HD from DISH Network. I am a customer and employee of DISH and right now you can get HD free for life with DISH.
