‘Smallville’ Schedules a Break
As Smallville prepares to premiere next week, word from the CW is that there will be a long break between episodes ten and eleven. This is being done for two reasons: one, it provides the network somewhere to run the second season of Reaper, and two, it allows them the opportunity to retool for a ninth season if ratings and casting issues indicate that makes sense.
The eleventh episode is currently scheduled to be the Geoff Johns-penned introduction of the Legion of Super-Heroes.
Look for a season 7 recap next week before the new season kicks off.
