Special to mark end of 'Smallville' run

LOS ANGELES, May 8 (UPI) -- The CW series "Smallville" will wrap up its 10-year run next weekend with a two-hour special, the network said.

The series based on the childhood years of Superman will air for the last time Friday night with a Clark Kent's marriage to fellow Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane.


The New York Daily News said Sunday the big unanswered question for fans is whether or not Kent, played by Tom Welling, will end the series by donning his legendary tights and cape for the first time, setting up a possible sequel.

"Everything comes together in the end," hinted Michael Rosenbaum, who plays Kent's boyhood nemesis and budding arch-villain Lex Luthor.

The Daily News said surviving 10 years is an achievement in itself for "Smallville," which never achieved super ratings and was on the brink of cancellation more than once.

"It's been an emotional ending for those who work on 'Smallville,'" Rosenbaum said. "There were tears when the finale was shot."
