Smallville Picked Up for Season 9
TVWeek.com reports that The CW is set to announce that they've renewed "Smallville" for a ninth season.
The network has given early renewals to a half-dozen existing series, including Superman drama "Smallville."
The CW President Dawn Ostroff began telephoning executives at Warner Bros. Television and CBS Paramount Network Television about the decision Tuesday morning. The network could announce the news as early as this afternoon.
In addition to "Smallville," the series renewed for next season are "Gossip Girl," "90210," "America's Next Top Model" (cycles 13 and 14), "One Tree Hill" and "Supernatural."
In the case of "Smallville," producer Warner Bros. Television had been negotiating with series star Tom Welling to return. The CW's renewal indicates the studio was successful in those conversations.
